Im on my cycle of dec/sus right now. is 1.3 grams of protein per pound of body weight good or should i go higher? i weigh 190lbs and consume no less than 240 grams, sound good?
How much protein is in 1lb of ground sirloin? i was just curious?

Anywhere from 1 to 1.5 grams of protien per pound of body weight is fine. For larger guys--professional bodybuilders that are huge, then probably 1.5-2.0 grams of protein per pound of body weight is used.
73% lean = 23 grams of protein per 3oz of broiled meat
80% lean = 24 grams of protein per 3oz of broiled meat
85% lean = 25 grams of protein per 3oz of broiled meat
1lb. = 16 oz.; so 1lb. of 80% lean ground sirloin is = (16/3)x24 = 128 grams of protein.
By the way, you should only eat about 50* grams of protein per meal or less. Your body cannot process much more than 50* grams of protein at a time.
*--NOTE: This figure is an approximation. The max absorption of protein per meal is between 45-70grams. Either way, 128 grams of protein will certainly be too much for the body to handle in one meal.
