200 g of protein/day.

I think some consume far too much protein to the exclusion of other macronutrients.

200-300 depending on my other macros for the day.

Yes I think some way over do it.

180-230g prot/day (28-38g per meal. 0.75g-1,25g/lbs)
150-200g carbs/day (50-60g in carb meals. i do include fruit to hit those numbers, fuck fruit haters).
100g fats/day

Thats like 2700 cals or so.

A lot o people eat soooo much protein, beliving they will build more muscle. They build up more fat and punish their kidneys, liver and pancreas.

Same for carbs, massive amouts of carbs, are not bad, but twice as much carbs DO NOT mean twice as much fuel.

Fats, people neglect fats (except those on keto diets, who neglect carbs). Good fats are called that way cos they are good.

In gereal those skinny people hitting 5k/day are getting the same results as if they ate 3k/day.

I'm eating 2.6g per kg of body weight (55kg). It's a high percentage of my macros, my fat is high also, low carbs. I'd say I'm carb "sensative", lol. It's working in terms of steady fat loss, and maintenance+ LBM. I make minor tweaks weekly based on my bodycomp.

allot of people go for more is better in everythign these days.

Some people still sugest 20 to 30g per sitting is eough.

I think its all relative to how much fat/carbs you take in, weights, lea mass.

As a rule I would say most bbers take more than is needed, but then again I guess you would rather too much than not enough.

WOW Isn't the rule a half gram per lb of body weight? I thought at 125lbs I was high at 90-120g a day...

Seriously? so 90x4=360 calories.

A basic measurement of basal caloric needs would be about 15cal x 125lbs= 1875cals per day. 1875-360= 1515, that mean you need at least 250g carbs, and over 50 grams of fat to meet those needs.


That's a lot of carbs and fat for someone your size...

K I don't count, I could be totally off on that 90-120. I'm a slackass, I confess.

Without your sex, weight and height, that's really completely useless information.

Hmm, Maybe I should up my protein intake. I'm 5'6" 160-165 pounds. I take in about 180 grams a day.

Generally 1.5g per lb of bw.

Some people do eat a lot. The protein requirements for everyone fluctuates greatly, dependent on weight, individual metabolism, and supplementation (enhanced athletes = enhanced protein synthesis).

450g as of now... Especially while I'm in prep (show is 5 days away!!)

I think in the off-season, it will be a little higher... 500, maybe 525.

I don't buy into all of that "your body can only digest 20-30g" bunk. If you are breaking down your muscle, and have enough muscle mass - your body will use it - granted... you can't process 200g per meal... but I don't see issue with 60g per meal.

Are you trying to tell me that Silvio who eats 600-650g of protein is just wasting it and can be just as big eating oh... 300-400? If that was the case, I'm sure he would be doing it. (I wasn't directing this at anyone - just throwing it out there)

I currently weigh 212lbs - x2 424... round up... 450 LOL :) Off season, I'll probably fill out to 225-230... and I'll increase accordingly.

That being said - I only have probably 1 shake a day (maybe one before bed) and that is post workout. The rest is solid food... roughly 40oz of turkey breast, and around 24 egg whites.

My protein gets run low so I can leave more room for carbs - I lose better that way. I'm typically around 125 - 150g with a stage weight 120 +/-

Concidering Ronnie Coleman, the king himself takes 500 grams of protein pre-contest. I guess you need it though eh, you're really really big.
