How many grams of protein should i eat a day so I can gain a lot of muscle fast?

I want to gain muscle very fast in my legs and arms.
I just want to know how many grams of protein should i eat a day to gain muscle fast, and of course, i’m going to do lifting too. Any ideas of foods i should eat that can help too? I’m planning of taking those protein shake powders.

    Eggs, milk and the peanut butter in pb&j are good sources of protein.

    every one thinks 1 pound of protein per body weight???
    Google Paul Chek Holistic Lifestyle Coach, you can even do a course. Dont buy into the garbage you hear about supplement companies saying the product will make you like Jay Cutler for example. Most of these bodybuilders have taken either steriods or growth hormones, the companies brand their product with these bodybuilders, claiming if you take our product you too will be like exibit A. Common sense comes in.
    You need to eat red meats, white meats, stay away from animal organs like liver etc, fish, pasta brown rice, flaxseed oil, fish oil, good fats nuts etc, vegs, fruit not to much though due to the sugar intake, less salt in your diet, lots of water. You need to work the whole body, you cant focus on legs and arms. Dont you need a strong foundation? Think of your body as a car.

    Good luck.

    If you want to build muscle, there are two components. 1) Strength Training 2) A Diet rich in protein.

    For strength training, you need to lift weights. To answer your question about how many minutes….You don’t measure weight lifting in minutes. It’s measured in sets and reps. For example, your bench press may be 3 sets of 10 reps. This means that you would lay back and lower and lift the weight 10 times. Then you would rest, and then do 10 more. Another rest session, and then 10 more. The key is to make sure you are using the right weight for the exercise. You should be using a weight that you can lift 10 times, but that you couldn’t lift more than 15 times. You also need to make sure your form is perfect. If your workout plan calls for 10 repetitions, and you can only do 6 before your form fails, then you need to stop that set. For the next set, and future workouts, lower the weight a bit. Now, on your final set for an exercise, your last few reps should be very challenging, and if you can’t quite get the last rep or two. That’s fine, you’ll get them in time as you get stronger.

    Next, protein. If you are working out hard, you should shoot for between .75g and 1g of protein per pound of body weight each day. Try to get most of this from your regular diet, but a whey protein drink about 30 minutes after your workout is a good way to boost your protein, since it’s readily absorbed at a time when your muscles are begging for protein.

    Consume one gram per pound of body weight with a majority of the protein coming from quality whole foods and some quality whey. Strength training is also crucial in stimulating growth in the body, so focus on these two first! Whey can also be very beneficial as it is easily absorbed and aids greatly in tissue repair. Whey protein helps athletes maintain a healthy immune system by increasing the levels of glutathione in the body. Glutathione is an anti-oxidant required for a healthy immune system and exercise and resistance training may reduce glutathione levels. Whey protein helps keep athletes healthy and strong to perform their best. Whey protein is a rich source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), containing the highest known levels of any natural food source. BCAAs are important for athletes since unlike the other essential amino acids, they are metabolized directly into muscle tissue and are the first ones used during periods of exercise and resistance training. Whey protein provides the body with BCAAs to replenish depleted levels and start repairing and rebuilding lean muscle tissue. I consume a chemical free whey product minus the fillers and additives from http://www.bulkprotein.com
    Whey protein is an excellent source of the essential amino acid, leucine. Leucine is important for athletes as it plays a key role in promoting muscle protein synthesis and muscle growth. Research has shown that individuals who exercise benefit from diets high in leucine and have more lean muscle tissue and less body fat compared to individuals whose diet contains lower levels of leucine. Whey protein isolate has approximately 50% more leucine than soy protein isolate.
    Whey protein is a soluble, easy to digest protein and is efficiently absorbed into the body. It is often referred to as a “fast” protein for its ability to quickly provide nourishment to muscles.
