    Protien absorbtion...

    Ive always been told that the average person can only take in 30-40g of protein per meal, and any surplus is simply wasted...is this true??

    Avg people arent bodybuilders taking AAS and in the gym 4-5 times a week also. If youre sweat and piss smells like ammonia and your piss is really frothy than you may be taking in too much protein. But I take sometimes up to 70 grams a meal with no issues.

    it varies from person to person but, your intestinal lining only has so much surface area and so much time to absorb a giving amount of protein. Plus the intestinal flora will compete for to a certain extent to the protein you take in. So it is best to split protein intake to smaller amounts with greater frequency.

    .

    No, that is ABSOLUTELY FALSE. First let me give you the reasons I dont believe this in the first place. Given the circumstances under which we evolve (food was boom and bust, feast or famine) the inability to ingest and utilize occasional MASSIVE amounts of protein would have been fatal to early man. He didn't have the luxury of eating little protein bars every 3 hours like clockwork. Meat rotts, and you might go a week or more without a kill and thus you Must
    be able to use very large amounts of protein all at once.

    Now here's the medical literature that proves it:

    From the Department of Chemical Pathology, Westminster Medical School, London

    ....Protein absorption, like the absorption of fat and
    carbohydrate, is normally a highly effective process,
    net absorption in man amounting to about 90%.
    Since much of the faecal nitrogen (totalling 1-2 g per
    day) is endogenous in origin, the proportion of
    ingested protein entering the body is probably
    higher than 90 %6-possibly 95 %.....Once proteins and the
    products of peptic digestion have left the stomach and
    are exposed to the proteolytic enzymes of the pancreas,
    chemical breakdown is extensive and extremely rapid.
