What is your average daily protein intake?
10-09-2008 10:22 PM
120g-200g is all i need, i weigh 169, 5'7.
10-09-2008 11:52 PM
240-300g for me, screwed up today tho, only 226g :/
10-10-2008 12:40 AM
does anyone have any solid evidence that even 1g/lb is needed naturally?
ive never seen anything that said any more was necessary, anything scientific, that is.
i still get >1 g/lb, but i think that amount is even more than most need

all you need is 1.8gr per kg max of bodyweight flooding your body with protein, your body wouldnt know what to do and it would be stored as fat

I have yet to be convinced you need anything over 1g per lb.... except maybe when on cycle, but even then your prob losing half of it in the toilet and just converting the rest to fat and energy
if your eating adequate carbs, then your body can better utilize the protein it digests, and you don't need as much
30-40g per meal spread over 6 meals and i'm good to go

3.14159 26535 89793 23846 26433 83279 50288 41971 69399 37510 grams/lb
Pi is a magical number for protein consumption as well!
Actually, I am always over 1 grams/lb but try to aim for 1.5 grams/lb

I use any where from 1.5-1.8g per lb BW since im on a cut
10-20-2008 06:06 PM
I shoot for 1.2-1.5g/lb and I would say that I get 200 minimum, 280-300 max
10-20-2008 06:07 PM
Are you currently maintaining or cutting?
11-13-2008 07:48 PM
The past 2 weeks its been in the 300+ range but im cutting it back now that im using the diet tracker, dont even need to use my weight gainer. I got a heads up that im probably doing more damage then good with the amount i was eating.

Over 1 per lb, but not 2, so somewhere in the mid.

1.75 gram per lb (350 gms daily) when cycling, 1.25 when I'm not.

I'm lucky if I get .75 grams/lb. If I eat more than that I would look like a blimp.
11-18-2008 11:38 AM
i get about 1.25/lb on a cut and 1.75-2 on a bulk
11-18-2008 02:48 PM
I find it very hard to even reach 1G per pound let alone 2G... I eat the crap out of protein bars.. I eat CLIFF bars.. all organic with 20g of protein, they are great.... and dominate the whey! but even with all of that i barely get 200g a day

How much can your body digest at one time? Ive always been told that it can only take around 25 grams per setting, and the rest is just waste. How true is this?
11-22-2008 12:42 AM
for me its .5-.6 grams/lb as i dont eat meat
11-22-2008 10:11 AM
Im not 100%, but im pretty sure its only 25grams give or take a few an hour.

Well i know there has to be a limit on it because your body does not store protein well. Whatever the body thinks is not needed goes straight to waste. So where is this limit at? 25 grams per hour, as stated by slanno, sounds pretty reasonable to me.
