    How much protein do I need to take to build lean muscle?

    My daily diet consists of a bowl of porridge, 2 kiwis, 2 bananas for breakfast, whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce for lunch, 2 chicken fillets/ 2 pieces of fish/ piece of steak, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower for dinner, 2 slices of whole grain bread with 4 egg whites and 1 whole egg for supper. I am 6 foot, 176 lbs, slim build and dont want to get really big, just lean. The recommendation on the protein is for 1 gram per lb with would be 176 grams for me. Does this apply for lean muscle as well as bulking up? Also any feedback on my diet would be greatly appreciated

    You should only take 30 grams of protein with each meal because your anabolism cant digest more.

    (WP's response, that is.)
    Man tries to make for himself in the fashion that suits him best a simplified picture of the world; he then tries to substitute this cosmos of his for the world of experience, thus to overcome it. This is what the painter, the poet, the philosopher, and the scientist do, each in his own fashion. Each makes this cosmos and its construction the pivot of his emotional life, in order to find in this way the peace and security which he cannot find in the narrow whirlpool of personal experience.

    I also recommend that you eat at least 7 meals a day, it will speed up your metabolinism. And dont eat at night it will make you fat.

    Those are the two most fought over ideas when it comes to nutrition
    1) Eating six small meals spread out through the day
    and
    2) There is a limit of how much protein can be absorbed in one meal.

    I still have yet to make up my mind about it.

    Then you obviously haven't done much research on the topic.

    Your protein shake (30g protein max per shake), must be taken at exactly 30min post workout or else you will lose muscle. It's called the catabiotic state, its when your muscles start eating from other muscles.

    Thats all you need to know, or you can read the stickies for more info mation.

    I forgot to add, do not eat any kind of fat whatsoever, stick to carbs like pasta and proteins like chicken.

    Take your multi 3 times a day and you'll be packing on some serious muscle in no time.
