    How much protein can the body handle at one time?

    Today in the gym, an old guy started asking me questions about what supplements I take. After we got into all that, he told me that the body can only handle up to 30 grams of protein at one time. Lately, I have been taking 2 25 gram servings of protein post workout. I want to know if I am wasting almost all of the second serving or is this guy wrong?

    I'm pretty sure that it is a myth that your body can handle only a certain amount of protein at a time.....the body is designed for maximal absorption. I can see this being true if you ate 150 grams of protein at once, but 50 grams in one sitting is fine.

    Pretty much.

    To the OP: Food isn't digested all at once. While there are limits on how much protein can be absorbed per hour (differs by source), things remain in digestion for a long time, allowing pretty much everything you eat to be digested.

    I'm cutting and I need at least 200 grams of protein per day. I don't think there's any way of telling how well my genetics compliment my protein intake. I dont have any requirements of the amino acids I need.

    I've personally experienced much better recovery rates at 3 scoops after my heaviest days. It may vary from person to person, but generally that 30g rule is bull****.

    This issue of men's health says I believe its 25 grams. Basically it says your body will get a ton of use out of that 25 grams and anything after that will not be wasted but also not really be much help either. I dont have the issue at hand but I remember for a fact that I read this yesterday. It was somewhere between 20-25 grams.

    So basically to answer the question. If you go by that information, your body can handle more but its really unnecessary to take more than 25 grams or so. Kind of like when people are on test boosters and they ask "I'm taking 2 pills in the morning and 2 with dinner, if I take 2 in the morning, 2 with lunch and 2 with dinner will I see better results". Most people's answer is, "you might see slightly better results but not enough to make it worth wasting 2 extra pills a day, you would be better off just making it an 8 week cycle instead of 6 weeks."

    and to me eating 150g protein in one sitting is just insane. eating your 5-6 meals a day, with assorted nuts as snacks, and taking easily digested whey proteins throughout the day is suffice. on a related note, casein helps to store and slow release amino acids, kind of as an infinite source of nitrogen
    i do it for the tacos.

    Yeah, I've always been told that it all gets into your body, just not all at the same time. It's like people waiting in line to get into a movie. They'll all see the movie, they're just not going to fit through the door at once.

    It's funny that you brought up casein because I just started researching it about an hour ago. I'm finding it difficult to get the amount of protein I need each day. I learned that casein is slow digesting and fights catabolic states. I'm interested in taking Syntrax Matrix. Has anyone tried this yet?

    Honestly, you should take Ultra-Peptide over syntha-6. Unlike syntha-6 it's first and most abundant ingredient is Micellar Casein and it contains higher quality protein imo.

    I actually just bought a tub of casein protein today. which company makes ultra peptide?

    Start tapering up the amounts of various protein sources. When you notice you are ****ting a lot more then you are probably taking too much and sould probably cut back.

    Even in nutrition classes there was never a real answer.
    alot of broscience saying exact amount without scientific data.

    theres one definate though, if you consume more protein than your body can handle, you piss it out.

    0.8-1 g of protein per body weight is what the recommended amount was a few years back, then it was 1-1.5 ... now its 1-2 ...

    if you keep to 1g/lb break up your food into 5-6 meals.
    this will ensure you get a lower dosage of protein in each meal,
    so you will absorb the maximum amount (regardless of what it maybe)
