I've been told I need one gram per pound of body weight per day, but holy shit...that's a ton. I'm 166 pounds. What are some of the bigger guys in the weight loss thread supposed to do? Seriously, you've got guys over there who weigh around four bills. Are they just supposed to pour they entire container into a give gallon bucket of water and slam it?
That's 13 scoops a day of that shit for just under 400 grams of protein.
Well, for one thing I wouldn't recommend ingesting more than 50 grams of protein at a time (I have heard it is difficult for your body to process). The other thing is that you want your supplements to, you know, supplement your diet. If you want to ingest 200 grams of protein, I would suggest that the majority of it come from actual food- not protein shakes. I've found alternating shakes with solid food to be a good system but I wouldn't base my intake on shakes alone.
