    Just wondering how you all get your supply of protein per day. I weigh 12 stones (i assume the US system of 1 stone = 14 lbs applies, hence me being 170 lbs?)

    How can I eat 170g of protein a day? A 140g can of tuna has 35g of protein.. which is merely 20% of what i need in a day..

    If I'm eating a decent amount of calories a day, it's hard not to get 170+ grams.

    Almost everything has protein in it.. I drink a lot of milk, there's a bunch right there. Even bread has a little protein in it.

    I'm probably under-estimating general food that we eat that has protein in it..

    Cottage cheese, chicken breasts, and tuna > *

    Then protein shakes to make up the difference, if there is one.

    170g of protein a day isn't needed. Consuming more protein doesn't effect how much protein your body will absorb. It only takes what it needs and rids it's self of the rest. It's impossible for a body to add that much muscle mass in a day's time. If you ate that much protein, you will shit out about 110g of it.

    Try 0.36g of protein per pound of bodyweight you have. If you're 170lbs, you should take in only 62g.

    i consume 3-5 protein shakes daily, each with 45g of protein.

    rest of my daily protein comes from chicken, salmon, tuna, turkey, beef, and eggs.

    Try 0.36g per lb of bodyweight you have. This is the amount a body, that is building muscle, needs.

    i weight more than you, i'm at ~195. here's my typical meal breakdown. protein in parthens.

    meal 1: oatmeal (5g)
    meal 2: protein shake (45g)
    meal 3: lunch (30-50g)
    meal 4: protein shake (45g)
    meal 5: dinner (30-50g)
    meal 6: protein shake (45g)

    meals 2 and 4 serve as snacks, meal 6 is right before bed. the above diet is for a non-workout day. if i'm workign out, i'll add a pre and post workout shake (another 90g protien). so at 195lbs, i fluctuate between 200-250g and on a workout day between 200-300g.

    if i don't eat meals 2 and 4, i end up eating like shit the rest of the day. they pretty much help curb my appetite and keep my diet in check.

    I get my information from Nautilus. The things I state are proven facts.

    The 0.36g diet was followed by such bodybuilders as: Frank Zane, Casey Viator, Sergio Oliva, Arnold Sch, Vince Anello and many others.

    Athletes do more cardio than muscle building, by the way. Except for, of course, the sport of Weightlifting. In addition to your criticism, athletes try to sharpen a skill more than build muscle. You're correct, sir, this diet would suck for an althete. That's why I didn't prescribe this diet to an althete; to my knowledge, the person I gave this advise to is a weightlifter.

    arnold in his book specifically states that you shoudl eat at least 1g of protien per lb of body weight on non-training days, and a bit more on days you train.

    I'd like to see your references on these claims that you need 1g/lb a day.

    If they are from a protein shake company, than, it's a marketing tool. Moron.
