    You harvest protein from your body's stores (in muscle).

    How much you need is a completely different matter. 1 gram per lb of lean body mass is way more than sufficient to cover the body's metabolic requirements and continue buding muscle. Some people say more is better, but I frankly haven't ever seen scientific evidence to back up that claim.

    Very few Americans don't get more than their daily required protein ... and most people don't go out if their way to eat enough protein. The more dangerous situation is when people try fail fad crash diets that have few protein sources.
    Lifts:
    Bench: 305lb
    Deadlift: 415lb
    Dip: bodyweight + 230lb
    Pull-up: bodyweight x2

    "There's a lot of 5'11 200-225 lbs guys with 10-12% body fat on the Internet. In reality, their "10-12%" body fat is more like 15% body fat or more. Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting. Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think."

    You need more, the FDA reccomends atleast 56 grams a day and i'd say even that is ABSURDLY low. I'd say 1 gram per body weight, minimum.

    I think anyone that is lifting should get at least 130g a day. That is an absolute minimum though. I would go as far as to say everyone lifting seriously should get 150g per day. If you are 160lbs or less I think you need a little more to put on mass, and if you are 160-180 that is probably around your LBM. 150g a day isn't terribly difficult either. I think that the 1g per pound of LBM is a good rule to follow unless you are trying to put on a lot of mass or cutting at a large deficit.

    It's alot easier than you think, if you make it a conscious effort to eat protein it'll happen. Eat some sort of protein with every meal, start taking protein shakes if you're not already. Two scoops after your workout is almost 1/3 of what you need. If it is still hard for you, there's a really good cookbook called Muscle Chow that is high protein foods that are real easy to make and give all the nutritional info of the recipes. Make protein a priority

    What if you may not meet your calories for that day (say a 500 calorie deficit) but you consumed at least 150g of protein through the food you did eat and supplements. What happens to muscle mass? BF%?

    I really don't think it's much of an issue to be honest. The protein requirements are grossly over exaggerated. Plenty of athletes maintain and build muscle without worrying about macro nutrients. As long as your protein intake isn't extremely low like <50 grams don't stress about it too much.

    Now if you're sitting at 200 plus lbs at 8% body fat that might be a different issue.

    Now if you're sitting at 200 plus lbs at 8% body fat that might be a different issue.
    Yeah I know A LOT of athletes that eat somewhat better than most people but their lunches(or whatever they eat at school) and if it reflects anything of their complete diet it just doesn't seem like most of us do. I had a few basketball players once ask me how much I eat since I always have two lunch bags and I told them like 200g protein(broke all my macros down) and they asked how was I able to eat all of that?

    Look once slice of quality cheese is 6g well eat 3 thats 18g. PB Sandwhich for lunch 15+G(depends how much etc) and once thing of chicken is 25g. I easily eat two chicken breasts when I have them for dinner and thats 1/4 of my protein. Its not hard.

    I am having a similar problem. except I am broke and can't afford protein powder. I need 300g of protein a day but I would be surprised if I am getting more than 150g right now.

    What idiot told you....you needed 300g of protein a day?

    Using this protein calculator
    http://www.healthcalculators.org/cal...rs/protein.asp

    even when I select desk work ,no exercise at all....my protein need is only 79g a day.

    and you don't need protein powders for your intake
    cause REAL FOODS like (chicken,fish,beans...ect...)
    are not only better....but will keep you fuller A LOT LONGER than a shake would....

    If it is consistent and depending on how little protein you are consuming, your body will use more of your muscle proteins to fund other needs. Although training will also have a large effect on muscle retention.

    Seems amazingly high. You may do better to set your protein intake more in line with your target weight. For example using 150 pound to calculate from as opposed to 288.

    Similar protein advice here, (I know you are not a man...)

    You want to keep protein up while leaning out. Besides being the most satiating macro it has the highest TEF factor also.

    I'd get rid of your personal trainer ASAP. This will benefit your fitness goals and your wallet. You can now use the extra cash to buy some protein as well.
