Is a 1500 calorie diet healthy and sustainable if vegetables, fruit, lean protein and in processed carbohydrates are consumed?

Weight and Activity: Yes that diet can certainly be sustained if it provides for the caloric expenditure of the individual on a daily basis. The mix of foods you choose is also very good. By "processed" i assume you mean complex carbohydrates. If you happen to be 350lbs and 6ft 4in then you are going to be rather hungry for quite some time. ...Read more

I drink muscletech phase8 whey protein beside workout to gain muscle.but feel dizzy after drink in the morning after wake up. It contain 0 sugar?

Hard to say: Are you working out before or after taking Muscletech? It may be exactly the low carbohydrate count and working out that is causing dizziness. maybe its the lack of carbs with exercise that is using up all of your glycogen stores and this will cause dizziness due to lack of energy source to brain. or maybe its's just one of the ingredients in the mixture. change it up. ...Read more

I am an endomorph looking to build muacle & lose fat, will i achieve this if i hv 1.5 grams of protein & 1 gram of fats per pound of bodyweight?

Not necessarily: In order to build muscle and lose fat, you need to put your body at a fat burning state (ketosis). This is best achieved by lowering your carbohydrate intake below 40 grams/day and taking 1.2 g of lean protein (branched chain Amino Acids would be more helpful) per kg(not pound) of body weight as well as 30 grams of lean plant or fish based fat. ...Read more

How do I gain muscle? I'm an skinny guy, 6'1 & about 160 pounds. also want to know about good supplements like protein and fish oil and multivitamins

Work out!: No supplements of any kind -- certainly not protein, fish oil, or vitamins -- will increase muscle mass. Do not get sucked in and waste your money on quack promotions and ads. There are no short cuts; only physical exercise will do it. Also do not be tempted by androgenic steroids, sometimes promoted as if they were natural products. You've probably seen the many bad news stories about them. ...Read more

Take charge: I am very glad you are gymming. But nobody here is going to design your diet for you -- you're an adult now with your own preferences. Protein after a workout, limiting calories sufficient to lose body fat for definition, and avoiding the worst grease / sugar / salt. Imitate the other guys. Creatine & an electronic muscle stimulator if ok with your physician. Good luck -- you'll look & feel great. ...Read more
