    Others may disagree…but the magic happens at 2 grams of protein per lb of LBM…That is the fast track to beefcake city my friend!!

    Nice to see you on video Tyler. I expected a big southern drawl but you actually don’t have an accent at all.

    Your focus from start to finish is undeniable. I’m still trying to get there. If I can get past “start”, I’d be on my way…..

    As a woman, I worry about gaining too much muscle. I lift weights about 2x a week but it’s not exactly what I’d call a weight-building routine. I use low weight and do more reps. I found that as I lost more weight and became much more active, I craved protein like mad! I was a vegetarian for years and am now a full-fledged meat eater!

    You can’t really gain too much muscle unless you are taking supplements that stimulate muscle growth, because as women it is genetically impossible. The “gaining too much muscle” thing is a myth, and strength training is a must if you want to be thin and firm, not thin and flappy. 🙂

    Wow 200 grams of protein a day? I struggle reaching 130 grams a day.. and my trainer wants me to increase to 160 a day.

    It’s my goal though, I’m moving away from weight loss and heading to building muscle just like you Tyler.

    Keep up the good work!

    I don’t understand why you need to so much protein in your diet? To have big muscles? My understanding is that the average American consumes far too much protein to begin with, especially animal protein. Why do trainers want their customers to up their protein consumption?

    How is it that losing weight and becoming physically active would make someone want to eat more meat?

    I am in the process of reading some of Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s books, he is an MD who advocates the conservative treatment of many diseases and conditions with diet and even medically supervized fasts (when necessary). I still eat all dairy and meat, but in moderation. I’m trying to up the green leafy vegetables, but am finding it hard to adapt to salad dressings without oils.

    His books are somewhat technical, but I recommend them because it is fascinating to learn to body functions at the celular level and how much we can accomplish through diet alone!

    Tyler…did you take a close look at when you shook her hand?

    Muscles baby!!!!

    I’m just starting my weight loss blogging, and I must say, YOU HAVE BEEN AN ABSOLUTE INSPIRATION to me! You and my husband are right on the same path. He started his weight loss journey a little bit after you, and has lost over 100+ pounds. I’m so glad to have found your site and starting my own weight loss journey.

    Thank you!

    I see a lot of people hype up protein (and, admittedly, I consume approx. 180 g per day, myself), but it’s very important to be drinking plenty of water to help balance that load. Protein can be hard on the kidneys and can potentially play a part in developing stones, at which point you won’t be doing much lifting at all! The whey protein powders tend to have a lesser effect than animal proteins, but it’s still worth keeping very well hydrated.
