  1. How much protein do you eat @ each meal ?


    I've heard the claim that you are not supposed to eat more than 30g of protein per meal. This number varies but is around that, but is within the ballpark. I've heard the theories about keeping the dosing small for maximum absorption, etc, etc.............


    How much protein do you eat at each meal ?

    I eat upwards of 50-70g at times for each meal.

    I think the 30 number is based on egg protein plasma levels. if you eat anything over 25g of eggs in one seating, protein plasma levels don't go any higher, and its all gone in a little over an hour. but thats just eggs, and taken solo. using beef instead, and with fiber, carbs + fat, the digestion takes longer so its released into blood slower too

  3. I think my protien consumption varies sometimes. Sometimes Ill go as high as 60 grams and sometimes as low as 30. I try to aim for 40g per meal however. 5 meal x 40g = 200 grams. Thats the average. Ill go higher most of the time.

  4. I really don't ever eat anything lower than 50g. The reason for this is b/c I don't always have access to eat protein all the time, so I just eat larger portions to compensate potentially longer time intervals between meals.

    I usually eat about every 4-4.5 hrs @ 50g+ of protein, instead of ever 2-3 hrs.


    The egg thing is interesting Easy. When I was using Egg protein awhile ago I'd have 60g shakes of egg protein.

  5. To all of my followers: 40g..

    thats the downside of eggs solo, and the plus side of blends. you can get a variety of proteins in a blend so some are faster than others. The problem with the study of course is that it was eggs solo (I believe sunny side up or hard boiled, cant recall) with no other food. a shake should be pretty close to that tho, if you have nothing else with it. I should try and find that study, but i'm lazy

  7. This is also too why I use digestive enzymes at every meal is b/c of my high protein meals.

  10. The way I figured it out for me, is to find the total number of calories per day I should be getting then figuring out what kind of macro split I want to be on...say 40/40/20. Then divide by the MINIMUM number of meals I will get per day...say 6 (maybe up to 8). Then whatever that number is, I aim for a MINIMUM (just in case I end up having fewer than six meals per day) of that amount of protein per meal.

    For me that's around 45 or so.

  11. 50g protein every 2-3 hours. My macros are 65% fat/30%pro/5%carbs during the week. I usually eat very little protein on the weekends, maybe like 10-15% of my daily cal intake.

  12. I try to get 40g per meal. You figure a steak or a decent size chicken breast is 40g at least. How much protein in a krystal?

  13. Right around 40 mg

    HAHAhahaha you must be tiny!

  15. 40g fts, as far as I've been informed thats the most an average 200ib BBer can digest at a time without anabolic steroids or some sort of other effective up regulator of protein synthesis.

  16. Well I was watching that movie markus ruhl made 'Big and loving it' or something like that.. He says he tries to eat 50grams at every meal.. I think like 7 or 8 meals a day. SOmetimes he takes 100 if he skips a meal..

    I hope so.

    BTW, why is the title of this thread green on my UserCP? There's only one other thread like that and I figured Bobo did it for that one.

  20. All the polls are green. (homo)

  21. Is that new or has it always been that way for non-gold members?

    I hear ya. I'm not totaly but anything over 1% and I bind up and its a terrible stomach ache for hours and even days. Even if its 1% or under I really have to watch how much I take it.

    I have a huge range no less than 25gr, but no more than 60gr. Even with a digestive enzyme anything over 60 is hard on the old gut.....and enviorment

  24. ideally, if I could eat whenever, whereever, I'd probably do 30g-35g every meal.

  25. 60g for breakfast, 30g for snack, 30g lunch, 25g snack, 30g pre WO, 50g post WO, 40g dinner, 20g before bed.

  26. Depends - anywhere from 8-55g hehe but I eat 6 times a day, with three higher protein meals and three smaller snacks which are therefore also lower in protein

  27. I have 4 meals per day at about 30 g, and snacks at about 10 g each, for a total of 6 meals per day.

  28. People put too much emphasis on protein. More doesn't equal more muscle. Mostly is mostly water, NOT PROTEIN!.

  29. i shoot for 25-30g with meals, and around 50g post w/o. I eat about 6-7 small meals through the day so plenty of space to get the protein in.

    I try to keep it right at around 30-40 grams per meal usually 35 x 6 meals a day. That seems to work out best. I think the not being able to digest more than 40 grams or whatever a meal is bogus. I've heard it said that the more you weigh, and the more frequent you consume higher amounts of protein, the easier it is for your body to absorb and digest such amounts. Also the higher levels of stress put on your body during training also plays an important role in such as well. I've seen in the cost of redemption video that Ronnie takes in 80-90 grams of protein per sitting. That was from his morning protein shake. He was also eating 2 cups of liquid egg whites, whatever that amounts too.
