Protein Calculator to Maximize Anabolism

HOW MUCH PROTEIN DO I NEED PER DAY TO BUILD MUSCLE? I have constructed a protein calculator which will give you an idea of how much protein per meal and how much protein per day you need to maximize anabolism which in turn will build lean muscle mass. It will answer the question, “how much protein do I need per day to build muscle?” When one is anabolic they are in a muscle growing state. A person can bring themselves into an anabolic condition a few ways. Weight lifting, increase dietary protein intake, take anabolic steroids, or use select androgen receptor modulators. Of course, the use of steroids and SARMs causes side effects, therefore the natural approach of lifting weights and increasing protein intake is the preferred approach. Anabolic means muscle building and catabolic means muscle wasting. You can read more about anabolic/catabolic here.


This protein calculator is better than all the other protein calculators out there because most of them use the US government’s RDA (recommended daily allowance) and the United Nations’ World Health Organization (WHO). Which most bodybuilders and sports nutrition experts know is not the correct calculation for individuals that are athletes, looking for muscle recovery, or looking to increase muscle mass. Secondly, this calculator is based on a sports nutrition abstract that is essentially a culmination of over 40 research studies that looked at dietary protein intake for increasing muscle protein synthesis. No other protein calculator on the internet factored in over 40 studies but this one.

HOW THE PROTEIN CALCULATOR WORKS This protein intake calculator was created with the help of an abstract from the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. I also wrote about this in an article a few months ago.…
