    Question Extra protein every day, or just workout days?

    Is it enough to simply meet the recommended minimum of .36g of protein per pound when I'm on rest days, provided I get a lot more (1.4g per pound) on workout days?

    I would raise that to .6-.8g minimum and make sure I hit it daily.

    I would shoot for 1g per pound every day for awhile and see how that does for you. And don't stress if it's like .9 or 1.1....just get around 1g and monitor your results and how you feel/look.

    Absolutely!

    Rest days are healing days in which high protein can be more important than on workout days.

    I don't think muscles require less proteins on rest days. In fact, one might wonder if they need more protein on those recovery times as protein helps them recover. I say make it consistent with your intake, but I also say diversify what products you take. Case in point, if you take one brand exclusively, what if that brand isn't all it's cracked up to be or is using inferior ingredients? I personally say use at least 2 different brands.

    Thanks for the information. I'm replacing my rest day morning oatmeal with a big protein shake. Just had one before I posted.
