    I didn't explain myself well, only animal protein is capable of building muscle. if you check out, for example rice or bread, it has protein but it is not animal protein. do you understand now? lol
    that is ridiculous. 'animal protein' is the best because its amino acid profile matches what we need to build muscle, but other protein sources are also good, as they will contain alot of the amino acids we need, just not all of them

    ye it can be hard to get the calories. i suggest drinking afew spoonfuls of olive oil each day (125 cals per spoon)
    also loads of peanut butter, and at least 2 litres of semiskimmed/full fat milk each day

    Buy skim milk powder, seriously it's pretty similar in macros to a weight gainer:

    Whey protein has the highest BV, does that count as an animal protein? but yeah, animal protein is not the only option if you want to build muscle, eggs are the best naturally occuring source, eat 3 whole eggs a day if you can.

    um, im not sure if people would call it an 'animal protein'. whey is derived from milk, its the run off when cheese is produced.

    its amino acid profile is the same as ours anyhow, so ye its a good source of protein

    As usual for here - some kid comes along asking for basic advice and people start arguing about pointless details and stupid minutae and worse of all, try to convince the OP to go and read a load more ****.

    OP: You are 16, your body is primed for growth... don't worry too much about a regimented diet - just eat normal, good balanced meals and try and increase your portions and never go hungry. Don't just fill your face with sugar but rather try to fill up as much as you can at meal times.

    In terms of exercise, sure weightlifting is going to have the biggest effect on your physique but I would just try all kinds of sports and activities and find what you enjoy the most.

    If you do want to do weightlifting, just stick to the main exercises that work all of your body (things like squats, overhead presses, bench presses, rows, chin ups/pull ups etc) and concentrate on trying to increase the amount of weight you can lift over time. The important thing is really to a) get started and b) stick with it consistently over a long period of time. The same applies to diet too. This is why you don't want to overwhelm yourself with info at first, to see any changes, you have to be in it for the long haul and you can refine things as you go along.

      There is no need to get a gym membership or buy expensive gear, get some free dumbbells, ones that you can put different weights on.
      Where do you get these free dumbbells from? :holmes:
