What is your average daily protein intake?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. 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


  2. I use any where from 1.5-1.8g per lb BW since im on a cut

  3. I shoot for 1.2-1.5g/lb and I would say that I get 200 minimum, 280-300 max

  4. Are you currently maintaining or cutting?

  5. 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.

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

  7. 1.75 gram per lb (350 gms daily) when cycling, 1.25 when I'm not.

  8. I'm lucky if I get .75 grams/lb. If I eat more than that I would look like a blimp.

  9. i get about 1.25/lb on a cut and 1.75-2 on a bulk

  10. 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

  11. 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?

  12. for me its .5-.6 grams/lb as i dont eat meat

    Im not 100%, but im pretty sure its only 25grams give or take a few an hour.

    Very much untrue.

  15. 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.

  16. I voted 2, because there is no 1.5 option. I would say I am around 1.5 per lb, maybe more. I always end up eating like a fat ass on weekends though, because I get up 2 hrs later than normal. It throws my routine way off, because I miss a meal and have to compensate the rest of the day.

  17. 2g per pound.

  18. 25g of protein and hour no matter how fast your metabolism is what i have always hear and read was the max. Anything over is a waste, the proof is when you eat more protein then your body can take it gives you horrible gas, thats the by product of no digested/absorbed nutrients.

  20. What is protein? jk


    I eat a gram per pound, but I'm going to eat more starting next year due to the fact that I need to up my calorie intake.
