    How much protein needed to maintain lbm


    I'm on vacation this week and I know my nutrition is not going to be nearly as on point as when I'm home.

    I'll be lucky to get three meals a day.

    I'm around 197 pounds. What would some of you recommend to ensure minimal muscle loss? What sort of protein intake should I shoot for?

    You're not gonna lose any muscle in a week and I thought you were on vacation!. Why worry about such things?. Just relax and enjoy your vacation.

    Worrying about your diet during vacation will likely raise cortisol levels.
