Generally I won’t go above 300 but it’s easier to do 250 by a lot

major difference between 250 and 300 if u are 210lbs?

Hitting 1g per pound should be fine so I wouldn’t stress about forcing yourself to hit 300g at your weight. Especially if you struggle to hit it stick with what you’ll be more consistent with.

Just make sure that if in a gaining phase you offset getting those missed calories in via carbs or fat.

I used to focus on this alot and now I get about 1g per pound, sometimes a little more, and I've experienced no difference.

Just for clarification...you’ve experienced no difference in taking 1 gram per pound vs taking more per pound?

Right. I used to take up to 2.5-3g and it was difficult to sustain, plus absolutely no benefit was observed.

Gotcha....yeah I agree. I’ve heard of guys eating 50-60 grams of protein per meal. I just don’t think the body can truly utilize that much protein at one time. Maybe it helps if you’re on a cycle and trying to put on a lot of mass. Who knows.

I shoot for 1 Grams per pound of body weight, 180 grams per day.

Ive found 1g per lb to be plenty. I focus on micronutrient rich foods nowadays much moreso than perfect macros and mainlining protein.
