    So he's basically saying there is no need for excessive (above 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight) consumption of protein. does this mean i can stop gorging myself now? :mamoru:

    The take home message for me were :
    - In normal people who trained just switching their diet, there was no benefit in consuming more than 2.4g/kg when talking about the body using the protein. This doesn't mean that there are no other benefits to doing this. Maybe in other populations (ie : those who eat a high-protein diet for a long time) there would be a difference when talking about protein use.

    - There's no problem for healthy people to eat a high amount of protein as far as kidney health goes.

    in your opinion, what's the optimum protein intake? (i.e. just under "excess")

    From what I can tell, being on both sides of the fence, if you are "chemically enhanced" and your body can use that extra protein, def ramp up the protein. But if you are rocking it natty style, just get your 1g per lb of bodyweight.

    I'm just reading that in people who just switched their diet, 1g/lb would be the minimum. Let's not forget that these are averages, so for some people it could be better to go higher and there's nothing about the body's long term adaptation to it.
    Plus, it's just about the amount of protein being used by the body to produce other proteins (structural or functional). There are other advantages of higher protein intake :

    As for the article.... It does not directly reflect the workout routines either. I would think that if you have two 200lbs males and one of them does your basic ho-hum workout routine and then the other busts his ass pushing with 100% intensity every gym session, the latter is going to need more protein.
    Not to mention different types of protein intake. If you use a shake pre/post that is 50g's of fast digesting whey necessary for your muscles and I do not feel this study completely takes these variables into account.

    All in all, to me all this article says is 1g/lbs is the best measurement to use if you workout regularly and push yourself each time.

    I agree, and also it helps with the cacium loss/potential osteoperosis comment since testosterone promotes bone growth, repair, and decity.
