I would suggest you stop your focus on total amounts and have a look at your protein intake relative to your intake of other macro nutrients (fat and carbohydrates). When you are concerned with how much you can eat in a day, it may be worth noting that fat holds much more calories per gram (9) than protein (4) or carbohydrates (4), so moving calories from ...

184g of Protein does not sound unreasonable to me for someone who is actively exercising. It can be a lot, but it only amounts to ~740 Cal of your daily consumption. So you will need to be eating more than that overall. First, I would check your math. Most lean meat has about 25g / 4oz serving--or as much space on your plate as a closed fist. A chicken ...

I've also seen numbers in that range, there are a couple things you may consider: LBM (lean body mass) is a much better number to base calculations from because fat tissue has a tiny fraction of the protein needs that muscle has. LBM is not really correlated to BMI. So for an example, if we imagine you have a body fat % of 20% you have LBM = 73.6kg which ...

I've always heard a good starting point for building muscle is 1g protein per lb of lean body mass (or about 2.2g/kg). Lean body mass is your percentage of bodyfat subtracted from your weight. Take this with a grain of salt, however, because some people may have higher protein needs than others. Anyway, take a 200lb (91kg) man with 20% BF for example. ...

There are a couple articles I can recommend, one is a nice summary article by Greg Nuckols and a more in-depth article by the Examine.com guys. You'll still see recommendations in terms of body mass--or technically speaking desired body mass. Greg Nuckols recommends .82g / lb or 1.8g / kg body weight based on studies sited in this article. The examine.com ...

There is a need to consume more protein during fat loss to spare muscle protein. This is especially true for Very Low Caloric Diets. But anything more then 3g per kilogram of body weight seems unnecessary. 2-3g/kg +a couple of sessions of intensive weight training a week could save your muscles while dieting. I highly recommend books by Lyle ...

Eggs are a decent source of protein, and there is no reason to throw away the yellow part, certainly not the cholesterol in there. Egg yolk is one of the few foods naturally containing vitamin D and dietary cholesterol has been shown to play a neglectable part in cholesterol levels. But next to that, the whole theory that claimed a causal effect from high ...

The yellow part is referred to as the yolk. It's actually not as bad as the rap it gets, although eating 12 egg whites at a time is bit high. But I'll leave that alone for now. A google search for "cheap sources of protein" will give you a whole flood of answers, pretty much all of which are cheap in part because they are whole or less wasteful. A post from ...

Muhammad, Eat the yolk part (yellow part) of the eggs; it's very good for you. The yolk actually increases the good cholesterol in your body ( this, this) as well as provide a host of other nutrients such as Vitamin A, which helps your eye sight Vitamin B, which is good for your brain, energy, etc Vitamin D for strong bones and good skin Vitamin K ...

I think as long as you eat three regular meals and actually worry about pushing yourself during PT eater than worrying about how much protein you need to drink you will quickly realize that the body takes care of itself and doesn't need as much as you think it might to build muscle And be strong. I'm a firm believer that you can naturally eat healthy and ...

This is a difficult one. You're basically both somewhat under-weight and somewhat over-fat. You want to gain about 2kg a month without gaining fat mass. There are very few people who can manage that, no matter what diet they are on. Given your low FFBM (55 .. 58 kg at 1m90 is pretty low) and given the fact that you are only slightly (if at all depending on ...

First of all, get rid of the idea of putting on 10kg in 6 months without gaining fat. A six-pack-neurosis is not your friend when you're trying to build muscle. No biggie though, fat is easily cut once you've got the muscle base to work it off. Second, your stats are very atypical for an intermediate lifter (see my comment above). If you don't hit the ...

First off, you shouldn't eat less protein on rest days. The muscles get damaged during workout, but they get repaired during rest, so you need the protein for that, as well as for building new muscle. That said 1g per pound of lean body mass would be good if you want to keep all your muscle. With 75kg and a presumed 15% bodyfat you'd have ~64kg (141lbs) of ...

@muffin, the responses from Dan Andrews and backinshapebuddy are the most important things to continue. From personal experience, the signs of kidney damage really are that subtle that you'll think you are healthy until your kidneys have finally had enough. Also, the foods you eat most likely have more than adequate protein. I was active, ate relatively ...
