Amino Acids And Protein Isolates Caused Unsightly Weight Gain In Me

Over the course of a few years, I took various amino acids trying to build muscle. I built something I thought was muscle, but now I struggle to get rid of it, primarily in my core.

I discovered that weight gain is a by-product of all protein isolates, whether it’s in supplement form or the form of the muscle tissue of another animal that you eat. Who would have thought? Certainly not me based on all the stories about losing weight on a high protein and fat diet.

Many years ago, when I ate steak every night I gained weight, so I don’t know who these people are who lose weight on a high protein diet. Look at football players. They’re huge because they take growth hormones in addition to large amounts of protein. When bulking up like that, then exercising to sculpt the body into the form you want, you feel like you have total control over how your body looks, because of your sculpting ability.

While in reality, throughout those muscles run intermittent, sporadically placed deposits of fat, that get utilized by the muscles when they need the energy to perform physical tasks of resistance – it’s called on-the-spot utilization of fat to the muscles requiring the on-the-spot energy.

When body builders and athletes stop performing, whereby their muscles don’t need all those fat deposits for on-the-spot energy, their muscles become limp from lack of industrial-style use and the fat deposits wallow when not supported by the muscle tissue, making the body look lumpy beneath the skin. Those lumps are very difficult to get rid of.

Even taurine, which I take daily, contributed to that gain. Now I’m off all of it and work on the strength and flexibility of my muscles rather than their bulk. I followed body building throughout my life, wanting I thought larger muscles, when in reality I wanted more control over the muscles I already had.

Now, after four weeks of reducing the fat, I see more clearly some of the causes for not being able to lose weight, and one of the causes is the amino acids I took, thinking I was doing right for my body, thinking also I needed more protein due to the fact that I don’t eat animals. I was misguided by the prejudicial research.

The unsightly part of the amino acid, protein isolate weight gain is seen nude. Clothes cover many flaws.

8 High-Protein Vegetables

8 High-Protein Vegetables

Slabs of meat don’t have to be the only protein-rich items on your dinner plate. Check out which vegetables provide the protein boost you’re looking for.

No, we’re not talking about sprinkling your greens with a scoop of protein powder or chasing those string beans with a double-strength protein shake. Believe it or not, there are vegetables that can be part of a protein-fueled dish on their own—and not just because they’re paired with a medium-rare steak or rotisserie chicken.

We’ve put together a list of the eight vegetables that provide the most protein bang for your buck.

1. Soybeans

With more protein than any other bean variety, cooked soybeans have about 28 grams per cup, roughly the amount of protein that can be found in 150 grams of chicken. More important, soybeans are one of only two complete plant proteins, the other one being quinoa.

A serving of soybeans also contains 17 grams of carbs and 15 grams of fats, 58 percent of which are essential fatty acids. The insoluble fiber in these beans promotes digestive health, while the unsaturated fat promotes cardiovascular health.

Protein content: 28.6 g per cup (boiled)…
