So we all know that higher protein amounts = better. We also know that BBers should be lookin' to consume 1-1.5 g of protein per lb of body weight.
BUT! What if your body weight is high because of fat, not muscle? Like, say you still weigh a fatso 240...should you really be taking in 240 g's of bro'tein?!
The reason I ask:
I started working out last year as a fat guy who no longer wanted to be a fat guy. Now that I've been at it for a while, I'm much less of a fat guy and my goals are becoming more focused on the muscle gain side of things.
That said, I'm not "there" yet, so I still primarily want to lose fat. But, since my long term goal is focused on muscle buildin', should I really be attempting to take in whale-sized amounts of protein?
Btw - I've been a lurker here for a while and decided it was finally time to join...this place rocks!
