Like this:: In skeletal and cardiac muscles, dystrophin is part of a group of proteins (a protein complex) that work together to strengthen muscle fibers and protect them from injury as muscles contract and relax.

I take proper diet ie proteins and all but when i masturbate i start looking so thin n ugly please help me?
Masturbation: Normal: I have absolutely no idea what you are really asking. There is no connection between the normal and natural sexual activity of masturbation and how fat or thin you are.

Are veggie sausages containing soya protein isolate n soya protein bad to eat say if u had 4 would that be too much soya. Also chocolate in one day?
A few thoughts: First, everything in moderation. Soy/textured vegetable protein (TVP) is a good product with a lot of protein/low cost. But TVP is highly manufactured and subjected to high heat etc in processing. TVP causes GI side effects in some people and is reported to mimic estrogen effects in women. Most also contains MSG. Can not really call it a health food..OK in moderation/2-3 servings per day. ...Read more

All essential aminos: Some Amino Acids can't be made from others in your body, and a complete protein is one you can live on -- it has plenty of each of these. It's important for vegetarians to mix proteins to get enough of each amino acid; i respect vegetarianism if taken for moral reasons but it makes safe eating more complicated. ...Read more
No consensus but...: It is probably more common for people to get too much protein rather than not enough, but there is no consensus as to what constitutes too much. 30-60 grams of protein is enough for most people but many americans get 100-160 grams a day. Too much protein increases risk of osteoporois and other problems- see http://www.Drmcdougall.Com/misc/2004nl/040100puproteinoverload.Htm. ...Read more
Eat more & exercise: Food is made up of carbodydrate (4 calories per gram), protein (also 4), and fats (9 cal/gm). Typical diet may have 15-20% of calories in proteins (15-20% fat). Suggest increasing protein to about 30-35% of diet. Drink a lot of water, seltzer with lemon etc (if 160 lbs, drink about 70 ounces -really). Then, exercise (brisk walk for 30 minutes, light weights) to convert fat to protein in muscle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Whey Protein: Whey protein powder is freely available for athletes. Lean protein such as chicken, turkey, and fish are all good sources of protein. Eggs in particular are good - especially egg whites.

Lean proteins.: Focus on fish, pork, turkey, egg whites and protein - the real thing, not cold cuts or canned meats. And grill or bake or broil - no frying. If you don't eat meat, beans and soy are great but you need to learn how to combine them to make complete proteins for proper absorption. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
