    How much protein 165lbs / 75 kg guy needs?

    So this is my first time designing a meal plan. I usually eat everything I get my hands on, and up until recently I never really payed any attention to what I ate. So I was thinking of eating the same way I've eaten until now + adding a couple of extra snacks/meals, for example: 2 liters of milk a day (66 g of protein), 5-6 eggs ( 35-42 g of protein), 50g of peanuts (12g of protein), a couple of bananas (3-4 g of protein).
    So that's about 120 grams of protein a day + my usual intake, about 40-50 grams I guess.
    170 grams is enough for me?? (I'm 5'8 - 165 , wrestling + weight lifting).
    P.S. I've also heard that your body cannot digest more than 30-35 grams of protein in one single meal. I that truth?

    165g to 245g of protein is the range you should be in.

    False that is a myth. Just split your daily amount evenly through out the day and you will be fine.

    it's 50 grams per meal.

    and you need 2grams per kilo or 1 gram per lb.

    yeh man thats about right ...
    my guy tells me that for a normal person (not gaining weight or muscle) should have roughly double there weight (kilos) of protein a day.. so 75 kilos would make 150grams..
    so until you have AT LEAST that much you wont gain any muscle .. so id say around 170-200grams a day

    120g is likely plenty unless you're on steroids. 150g would be a safe target to aim for.

    You can eat it all in a single meal if you like.

    And no, bros. I'm not kidding.

    Bad advice. OP don't listen to that.

    You'll need way more than 120g daily if you're heavily active with your wrestling and weights, not to mention growth itself of course.

    120g is like what a lot of women eat lol Normal people etc.

    Agreed. However, I find it hard NOT to get a lot of protein on any type of diet, so don't fret if you go a little over.

    I started gaining significant mass with 1.5 g per pound of body weight. (Not that I'm jacked yet) It really depends but extra is better than not enough. As long as your drinking plenty of water you're body can handle it pretty big amounts of it. (For people who say its gonna screw up your kidneys)

    I reckon that amount should be fine. I'm that weight and I've found 150-200 grams has served me fine.

    I usually aim for 3 or 4 meals of 50ish grams at a time.

    I agree with chaser1712. 1.5 grams of protein per pound. Aim for around 247 grams of protein. I weigh 165 myself. This is just my opinion, I'm not a nutritionist, I'm just a certified Personal Fitness Trainer.

    Firstly, you just bumped a two plus year old thread.

    Next, I don't know of any peer reviewed journal published study that indicates anything over 1 gram per pound of bodyweight brings incremental benefits and most studies suggest that (much) lower intake meets sufficiency.*

    Please cite the peer reviewed journal published studies that you base your recommendation on.
