Protein Intake ---> Reference from Alan Aragon:

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I'm 210 and sitting about 10% and eat 125-150 grams a day (in addition to ~40 grams of BCAA's)

    Eating very clean, using SENSIBLE macro's, macro-timing/manipulation, consistent training are the name of the game.

    Daily for me:
    125-150 P
    150 F
    50-100 C (mainly greens and fibrous varieties)

    NOT TRYING TO PREACH or STIR THE POT but I stopped listening and subscribing to the scams, overhyped advertising tricks, solicited bro-science and lies of the supplement industry (especially related to protein consumption)

    I have never been leaner, thicker and just aesthetically "better" - not to mention the lack of bloat and overall feeling of tightness in my midsection from moving past the bro-gospel of protein over-abundance.

    Just my spin

    I just like to eat dead animals. So my protein is high. If I manage carbs that's when I see the best physique

    Are you cutting or is this your normal amount of food? Seems very low for someone your size.

    Im an old fart in my 40's. I love the same...but any excess whatsoever just doesn't agree with me anymore.
    Constipation, bloat, sluggish/lethargy. Even with digestive enzymes and betaine HCL and ginger. Just cant do iot anymore hence the large quanties of aminos ($$$)

    Well, maybe. Sort of depends on your goals, phenotype, kcal and other macros.

    Maintenance. My metabolism sorta stinks

    I am convinced the amino's I slam pre/peri/post-w/o and throughout the entire day (despite the prodigious expense) have been key to many things for me.

    I'd say you prob do ..I'd run 200g and 250g. Cut back a bit and see how it goes. I literaly can sense my body not using anymore than 250g normally and tops 300g when im juicing. I do have many days where I eat about 200g. I had some bloodwork done while I was eating 300g of protein and kidneys were def working a little harder.
    I also have heard Kevin Levrone saying he only ate about 300g preping for shows which I believe him.

    By aminos do you mean BCAAs or BCAAs and other aminos? I'm also in my 40 s and looking into changing my protein and global calories intake to some extend.

    Eh... slamming BCAA's all day never leaves your body to reach any refractory period from constant elevation.
    Would be best to keep them to intra-workout or to between meals spaced 4-6 hours apart:
