"So if you’re an adult athlete who wants to build muscle mass, and you weigh about 175 pounds, the most protein you would need per day is 157.5 grams. That sounds like a lot, but one 4-ounce hamburger contains 30 grams of protein, 6 ounces of tuna has 40 grams, and a single ounce of cheddar cheese has 7 grams"
As someone who reviews research on a daily basis (my daytime job) I'm exposed to alot of research studies in both the biomedical and social science fields. It's surprising how LITTLE research comes through the university that I work at regarding health and fitness.
The medical field is full of quick fixes for weight loss and fitness such as bariatric surgery, pills, and diets, but rarely do I see research conducted on exercise science. In the 8 years that I've worked at this job, I can count on one hand the research studies I've seen related to exercise, and most of it has been aerobics. As a sidenote, the university that I work at is one of the top recipients of research funding from the National Institutes of Health, yet, the degree of research being conducted in the fitness field is minute compared to other areas of science.

I remember nutrition classes being 50 year old info. Food pyramid being the primary bases for all nutrition. I realized the bodybuilding magazine had a lot more relevant real world practical knowledge than my text book. That goes double for any kind of training. I think the main reason why is #1 I don't even know where the media / college gets there info and #2 you have sites like this that have a bunch of people experimenting on themselves to find out what works best. Practical knowledge vs theoretical.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.
