    Protein after workout, how much?

    Primal Fuel
    I have started eating some protein after workouts to increase muscle size. How much Protein?
    I have been eating a can of sardines (23 grams) or 3 hard boiled eggs (24 grams). Is that enough? I have heard that one should eat 1 gram per pound of body weight. If I did that I would be eating all day, not hungry enough for that or have enough money.

    If you want the protein to be available in your bloodstream in time to really matter, you might want to consider eating some before the workout as well. It probably takes a few hours for it to full digest and be broken down.
