The body can't absorb that much protein, save your kidneys and get about 1 gram per pound of bodyweight.

No. Eggs and meat = too much protein, no carbs. Potato is a good source of energy (and vitamins) that helps in building muscle. It makes sure that the protein from the meat is used to built, not for energy. Eggs can be a problem if you tend to have high cholesterol and cottage cheese will give you the protein just the same, unless you are lactose intolerant.

That's why you ingest carbs along with the eggs and red meat. By the way, don't eat a lot of red meat, it can cause problems later on. Eat a lot of chicken instead.

If you have potato with the eggs and/or red meat, then you are getting the carbs and protein. The carbs are used for energy, rather than the protein.

That's why you eat only egg whites (which have all of the protein and none of the cholesterol), or you use Egg Beaters or something similar.

Cottage cheese is high in sodium, which creates hypertension.

Problems like what? The keyword is "can" but most likely won't. You're also forgetting that red meat is a much better source for other nutrients than protein. Pork might be the best of them all but you'll get good results by balancing between the three.

Correct. But don't go overboard with the protein intake, enough is enough.

The problem is that yolk also contains almost all the vitamins and most of the minerals on a egg. So if you don't have high cholesterol, yolk is actually better than the white.

Depends on what type you eat. Low fat cottage cheese is low in sodium, about 14mg in 4oz serving.

Heart problems and colon cancer, to name a couple. Nothing says sexy like a colostomy bag.

Correct. The 1g of protein per pound of body weight isn't necessarily a requirement, it is more of a guideline. You can get less protein, and get enough carbs, and be alright.

That's why you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, as well as a multivitamin. It's also ok to eat the whole egg in moderation.

Studies have shown a weak link between red meat and these two, nothing concrete. Order/cook your steak medium or below. Fried, well done, open fire, those produce carcinogens that are linked to cancer. And a good filet mignon is wasted if burned beyond medium rare...

Looking at what the three meats bring in nutritional value, I would say chicken is overrated and pork is underrated.

Vegetables, berries, fruits. True, you should eat those but the yolk is too good to be wasted in people with normal or low cholesterol. I should go and check mine, a few years back it was still too low.

BTW, many berries are better sources than most fruits.

Well, moderation is the keyword with many foods. Except with potatoes, if you want to bulk up, that's what you should load on your plate.

And whole-grain pasta, and whole-grain rice. I know pasta has protein in it, I can't remember if rice does or not.

While whole grain is always good, the thing about potatoes is that they will give you fast glucose and potassium. Add the high content of vitamin C and others, it is a very good food to eat when trying to gain weight. For the same reasons you should moderate it if you're trying to lose weight (even when potato is a complex carb).

Thumbs up

The secret and only secret to gaining weight is this.
1. Eat more calories than you can burn during a typical day
2. Weight resistance training. If you skip this step, you'll only gain weight in "fat". You have to build muscle. Remember..muscle weighs more than fat.

#1 statement would have been ok if you would not have added #2. Since it is important that you're not just gaining fat, it is also important to watch what you eat, not just how many calories you eat.

There's been a huge amount of press lately on the heavy content of Mercury inside a lot of different fish. Tuna was mentioned as the Albacore variety has about 3 times the amount of mercury as the normal canned product. Just FYI
