Overconsumption of protein for beginners I feel, is an area that goes unmentioned.
From not paying any attention at all to protein intake, to suddenly going to the typical 1gram of protein to 1lb of bodyweight is overkill in my opinion (BROSCIENCE, YEH WHUT). Much less than that will suffice, saving the beginner money (If on shakes).

Muscle builder will try to eat around 3-4 foods a day. Many experts say that they eat 5 foods a day themselves, and many physicians suggest this to provide your system with a stable quantity of nutritional value, instead of filling yourself twice a day and then seated on your buttocks viewing T.V. You want to propagate your aminoacids around in these six foods. You should not consume 5 Whey protein drinks and 9 of meat for evening food and get over 125 grms of Protein in that food, just because you didn't eat any Protein for the whole day. A excellent muscle builder knows that he should provide his muscle tissue with a stable flow of Protein to develop, not go without food his muscle tissue and then package so much Protein in his system in one seated.Website Development Companies + Web Design & SEO Company + Website Design + Website Development + Mobile Application Development company - Americos Technologies

I am not sure but if anyone answered this, but body builders need 1 gram of protein for every pound. EX. 280 pound dude eats about 280 grams.

by no means am I saying this article is the end all be all, but it touches on the idea that how much one should consume is relative to what their body's be previously exposed to, etc. i'm a believer in that personally - lol , i wrote the article

Depends on the individuals needs and goals.
For bulking 1-1.5 is sufficient as you will be consuming more carbs, which should allow more of the protein to be used for growth and recovery vs for energy.
When dieting, Ive gone as high as 2-3 and noticed a significant difference is hardness and leanness and muscle sparing, which may be high for some, but for me it worked better than the standard 1.5-2.
If the person is not intensely weight training, or looking to build muscle or get lean, the needs are very much different.

Heya guys. It's an interesting thread for sure. Since I started lifting just eight months ago, I try to follow the 1g per lb of bodyweight rule and I swear by it. Unfortunately I'm struggling to put on weight - only managed 5 pounds since I started! I think trying to find the calories is much harder than meeting your protein requirements.

take as much as you want, you just excrete what the body doesn't use. more than 2.5g/kg of bodyweight could severely tax your kidneys though. I'd say a good number is 1-2g/kg and spread out throughout the day in 4-6 meals at least should be fine. Protein is like air...your body uses what you need at that moment.....most folks only actually use 70% of the air they breathe in at rest. just remember, the higher the protein intake the more water you need. on any given day I take in at least 80grams and at max 200g/day...depends on how I feel and the nature of my training."Integrity is paramount"--J.

IMO 1g/lb is kinda on the higher side even for intermediates,, this number should be reached only after 2-3 years of gym and when hypertrophy and maintenance more is required. ACSM recommends 1.7g/kg for athletes, that is the max. But that recommendation is not for bodybuilders. Personally I have tried to go on 10-12 gms a day(not intentionally) and also to 200gms but have found 50gms to be sufficient.
