Too much protein
If i eat a meal with 35g of protein in it, does it make sense to drink a protein shake? I've heard that you can only absorb 40 grams per meal. If that's true, how long do you wait till you should eat more protein?

Holy shit....that's the amount you can absorb?? At about 7 at night, I'll eat a can of tuna (34g) and 16oz of milk mixed with two scoops hydro-whey(62g)...so I'm looking at 96 grams for that meal! Am I wasting my time.??

for those of you who wine about thinking that they are taking too much protein and that it is a waste check this. protein is the slowest burning energy compared to fat and carbs, so if you are bulking up dont even reconsider large quantities of protein. Your body will feed on it alot longer than it would if you piled down a bunch of carbs. Also, best thing to do is down a bunch of protien before you go to bed, that way your body will be feeding on it while you sleep.

At that body weight I'd say shoot for 45 grams per serving. Any more and you might be on the bowl.

gr of protein you need = 1.7 - 2.2/Kg/BW
example if you are 100Kg then you will need between 170 - 220 gr protein/day. Take 40- 50 gr in one portion if no other protein source is on your table for that meal. The more will become just fat. You have to count the protein you take from your meals and add the left over from your supplement.
Protein will raise your urea and uric acid readings if you don't drink enough water during the day with it.

doesn't your body only use so much protein that you put in though. Like your body uses 100% of eggs and like 90% of chicken, or something along those lines. I think it was in Arnolds encyclopedia

yah the conversion factor whey protien is 100% usable eggs where like 90% and i though chicken was around beef lik 60% or something
