    So whats the answer?
    It's probably best not to over think it.

    If you're hungry then eat. Your body will know what it wants and how much it wants. If it's time for steak or chicken but you feel like pasta, then eat pasta. Unless you're cutting or on some other specific diet.

    Push the plate away when you've had enough.

  3. purebred, where did u find that article u quoted? is there more? sounds like a good read

  4. Let science be right..science says no more than 40 grams hahaha All I know when I started taking in 1.5 plus grams of protein I became larger, denser and packed more muscle than when i took in one gram of protein per pound of body weight. I would rather be a big wrong man then a small right man.
