    Question How Much protein do i really need?

    Hi, Im close to 6 feet, im about 170 pounds, i want to be as shredded as possible, how much protein do I really need? Some sites says 80g’s some others say 170g’s, it’s 1G per pound right? And also, is it okay to use 80-100g’s of whey a day? On the side of my chicken and eggs? I also trow in some bananas and PB in the shake, trying to save some money since food is expensive in Norway.

    119g MINIMUM based on current research of .7g/lbs

    Whey is fine to meet minimums/convenience however whole food is preferable

    A waste for what?

    MPS won’t increase with increased protein over minimums
