    It's beneficial bc it tastes good as hell and increases calories.

    I personally eat 2-3 lbs of chicken or turkey a day.

    Fits macros. Tastes amazing. I'm lean and staying strong

    I'm not criticizing whatsoever. I love protein dense foods more than any other food but eating that much is really harsh on the wallet. I'm in college so I don't exactly have a huge budget. I'm just saying that I hate when people pretty much say you need 1.5 g/lb of protein to grow. I'm just trying to say that it isn't necessary to do so.

    If you go by NNU by ALR

    If you weigh 220 divide by 2.2 = 100kg multiply by .4 = 40 g nitrogen

    So 16g nitrogen per 100 g protein. You need 250g protein per day to hit your NNU so that's about 1.15 g per lb of protein

    Just sayin

    what is NNU


    so what is the controversy between 2-3g protein / lb of body weight. Is it really harsh on your liver and can cause problems if you are an athlete that is active?

    Net nitrogen utilization. Personally I didn't really find out too much about it after looking it up aside from which foods have the best values.

    Also, *kidneys.
