    Im no expert but I do know that you should not take in less than 1 gram per pound. I would definitely shoot for 1.5. Your gains should not be affected if some days, you don't get as much protein as you should.

    Depends on your calorie intake relative to your maintenance. You don't need as much protein if you have a large calorie surplus. You are a dumbass for judging someone's advice based on their AVI by the way.

    Why don't you want carbs and fat? I'm sure you do know you need to be in a calorie surplus to bulk. Eating 1-1.5 g of protein won't get you enough calories. You still need fats and carbs.

    your on a bulk....your main focus is calories which should mostly come from carbs...1-1.5g of protein is fine...it really won't make a difference...it will make a difference if your not getting enough calories a day though...don't forget your fats as well

    Where are you getting your main source of protein from? If you're relying on only whey supplements for your main source of protein it's time to rethink your diet. If you have a high protein diet, then no worries, you really only need 1-1.5 grams of protein/ lb you weigh. More protein doesn't necessarily mean more gains. Your liver only processes a certain amount before it just dumps the excess protein.
    What I learned in 2011 is there is no difference between the State Penn, and Penn State.

    You'e eating the right stuff. Only you know if you're eating enough. I'd suggest you calculate the amount of calories (roughly) you consume every day. If you're in the 2500-3000 cal. range you are more than fine.

    I can guarantee you right now that you do not 1.5g of protein/lb of bodyweight.

    That means for you at 150lbs, you think you require 230g of protein per day?

    I am at 180lbs and on most days i get in 210g of protein. There is no way in hell i would need to eat 270-280g of protein a day, that is complete over kill

    At the end of the day, your total calories for the day is the most important stat you need to worry about.

    Yes protein is important, worry about it. But only take in a little over 1g per pound of bodyweight.

    EX: 170g of protein for you a day is plenty

    Worry about calories, protein, fats, then carbs.
