    I know there were some studies as well as articles posted here stating that the body CAN absorb more than 50grams of protein in one sitting, and also one that says it makes no difference whether you eat 3 large meals or 6-8 smaller meals throughout the day.

    Can someone post the links?

    Thanks.

    I might just be retarded but where in that article does it say you can digest more than 50grams of protein in one sitting?

    You're right, its not the same article, I posted it before I read it fully. However, it is a good read regarding protein absorbtion rates and the role of glucose and insulin.

    If you ate 100g protein with fats and leafy greens to slow digestion, it would theoretically be digested over a longer time thereby giving you a sort of "extended release", which is where the 3.vs.6 meals comes into play.

    Steak with salad vs. a whey drink will have different absorption rates. It depends on if you consider whey a meal as well.

    Both.

    I know both were posted here.

    I don't remember any .pdf's but I do remember those little studies that people post that are like a paragraph long.

    does not establish an actual limit, but definately implies that one exists
