To build muscle, you must supply your body with the necessary amino acids found in protein.
Protein from animal sources contains the essential amino acids, while vegetable protein sources contain some but not all of the essential amino acids.
Proteins are the building blocks of muscle. They are essential for growth and repair.
Protein consumption is the single most important factor of bodybuilding nutrition. Without enough protein, building muscle will be impossible.
Consume between 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight, evenly split across your meals. EVERY DAY!
You can use supplemental whey protein to meet this goal, but consuming real food protein sources is best because of the thermal effect of food. The thermal effect of food is the energy the body uses to digest, absorb and process food nutrients, you are burning calories by eating solid protein vs. drinking your protein.
However, eating whole food sources high in protein every three to four hours can be difficult. This is where bodybuilding supplements such as whey protein shakes or meal replacements come in handy.

You can get all the protein you require from a plant based diet. You just need to know which foods to eat and in what quantities.
