Not enough protien and on Juice
Lets say your coming in at 210 pounds, and on a cycle of Prop/EQ.
In the event that you dont make that 210 grams of protien a day mark for a couple of days in a row, does your body turn catabolic - or does it just not grow any further?
I mean, lets say you put down only 100 grams of protien for a day or two, are you going to lose muscle/stay the same or what? What do you guys think?

I dunno man but I would not let that happen as often as possible on a cycle. Sometimes circumstances get the better of even the most thought out plans. Not getting enough protien is the thing I'm second most paranoid about when on. The first is sprouting a nice rack.

3) Not enuf intensity

You should be getting at least 300-350g of protein a day.

350 grams of protien is too much 200 grams is more than enough

Everyone's body is different and will be able to process a different amount of protein and more importantly will be able to utilize a different amount of that protein. You have to test around and see what works. Start off with say .8g/lb and every week keep adding until you notice you feel fat accumulating or you just feel like crap. Diet is a funny thing if you are not getting enough carbs/fat then all the protein will be used as energy anyway. You have to get the other macro's right too.

From what I've read a protein intake of 1.5g/kg of lean body mass will exceed 95% of people's ability to store AA's in either muscle or as fat.
Remember that muscle is 90% to 60% water and 1lb of muscle only has 45 to 182g of protein. Protein is definitely important but it is not like your body needs massive quantities to grow.

I take anywhere from 250-350 grams per day when I'm on.
