How Much Protein

by Brad Pilon

Protein to Build Muscle


If you’ve been sitting on the fence about getting a copy of How Much Protein, now is the time!

I’ve just released the New and Expanded version of How Much Protein!

With over 50 extra references, and over 150% larger, this expanded version covers some exciting new information – including the role that satellite cells and genetics play in your ability to build muscle AND the difference between Juvenile and Work Induce muscle growth.

I also cover the amount of protein you need to eat to build muscle, as well as the rare exceptions to this rule!

If you want a great reference that gives you clear guidelines on how much protein you need to eat, and a thorough explanation of the science that explains these recommendations then this is the book for you!

PS- As always, if you already have a copy of ‘How Much Protein’ then please email me and I will take care of you.

Dear Brad,
Is the rolling average of 70 to 120 grams of complete protein a day still largely accurate as the default ballpark?
In other words will I still be able to grow muscle optimally as an intermediate trainee (Height6 foot, Bodyweight 165 pounds, squat 285 for 15 reps.Dip with 90 pounds, Deads for 345 for 8 reps as of last workout)?
I feel like I know everything I need to know about health and fitness, so please tell me if your new book is groundbreaking/necessary for a fairly experienced trainee.
Thanks a lot!

Hi Brad, I have a copy of How Much Protein new version dated February 2009.

Ironic that you’re promoting this book while on the Adonix Index blog there’s an interview with some fitness model who talks about how he got into the best shape of his life eating multiple, high protein meals every day. You guys need to get your story straight.

Asking someone ‘what he did’ does not constitute ‘promoting’. We learn by testing our hypothesis against others, and exploring all alternative possibilities. When needed hypothesis are refined. You can’t refine without entertaining the possibility that other ideas exist. That’s how progress is made.

It has nothing to do with getting a story straight.

I have a previous copy of How Much Protein and emailed you for the new version with no response. I replied to the email sent out on the updated version. Is there a different email address I should be using? Thanks.

Hey Brad,

I’ve read through loads of your research and am a big believer in not needing huge amounts of protein or lots of calories. I’m 19 and have been weight training for a year now and have gained some muscle and dropped fat. I’m fairly lean now but really want to get fairly defined with a good 6 pack. Currently I’m doing two ESE fasts a week, combined with higher calorie days, especially post workout on weight training days as I believe as I’m still younger and fairly new to training, I still have more muscle to gain. I think I’m still in a calorie deficit weekly. Would you say this is the best way to achieve my goal given my age and training experience? If not, what would you suggest?

Keep up the good work, appreciate it all!
Hope you find time to answer.

Hi Brad,

Do you address the protein needs of adults over 50 in your book? I have read that we do not absorb or utilize protein as well as younger adults. Does that mean older adults should take in MORE protein…or different types of protein…or consume it in a different fashion?

You can also read Mike Mentzer’s book Heavy Duty Nutrition. Talks about the same subject. I believe Brad has a better book for the same matter though. But I haven’t read his book yet.
