The average male will need 180 to 220 grams of protein per day. The average female will need 100 to 120 grams. The rest of your calories will come from fats and carbohydrates.

Now remember our focus...building muscle on a budget. I don't care what percentage of carbohydrates or fats you are eating as long as at least 20% of your daily calories come from fats. Understand that this is a minimum. 30% average fat intake is a better goal for most of you.

Don't fear quality fats. Your body needs this macronutrient for organ health, brain health, skin health...well, for everything. The only fats you'll really want to avoid are trans fat. Abstain from using*these health-destroyers at all costs, even if they are cheap and tasty.

When it comes to carbohydrates, you might be tempted to rely on foods that contain a lot of sugar and flour. While this is great for the wallet, it's not the best option for health and muscle building. I'm going to provide you with better options.
