Protein


#1

how do you calculate how much protein you should have in a day. i know you multiply something by your weight or something like htat


#2

umm, usually you try and aim for 1g per body weight. That’s more for maintance, but if you’re trying to build weight, then probably around 1.5g-2g per bodyweight. It depends…

It does depend on how much your body can take. If you are a normal athelete, 1 g per pound is good. When you start getting into the higher reaches, like 200 g per day, it becomes harder for the body to take it all in without waste. You can only use 25-30 at each meal. So if you are having six meals a day, you could get 180g protein without a problem.

But if you are 150 lbs. and taking 2 g per lb…
300 g’s of protein is alot :shock:
