Our expert says:
The most important factor in the development of muscle mass is the type of exercises you do, preferably weight-bearing exercises. From a dietary point of view you need a diet that is rich in carbohydrates to fuel your exercise sessions and a moderate amount of protein (about 2g per kg of body weight). It is NOT necessary to increase your protein intake excessively as this may harm your kidneys. If you click on 'Fitness' at the top of this page and then on 'Nutrition' you can read the articles on Diets for Sportsmen and women which should help.
