I am trying to determine what is the right amount of protein to ingest on a meal basis rather than the typical daily basis. I have heard the following:
1) We should ingest anywhere from 0.5-2.0 times your body weight of protein (in grams) daily.
2) Our bodies can only absorb about 30g in a single meal.
If the 30g absorption is true, doesn't it make it pretty futile trying to get more than 1 times your body weight in protein?
I imagine the 30g statement is probably more complicated, but don't know the science behind it.
