Myth 28: Eating a lot of protein helps build muscle.
What Dietitians of Canada says:
“Protein alone does not build muscle mass… Sure, you need protein, but overdoing it adds extra calories and won’t build bigger muscles. While most people get enough protein from their daily diet, strength-training athletes, like bodybuilders, might benefit from more protein, especially in post-workout snacks. But even that extra amount of protein can be met by simply choosing protein-rich foods from Canada’s Food Guide, such as lean meat, fish, poultry, eggs, lower-fat milk and alternatives, and legumes.”
