comment Am I eating right? or way too much?
@MikeS My first source for protein is food--chicken, fish, eggs, and beef in the normal course of meals. Second is supplementing with more milk and eggs than one already has in the diet. Third is protein shakes. As for the downsides of milk--I don't drink factory hormone-ey milk, I noted the lactose/digestion issue in my answer, and it's hard to miss one's daily protein requirements with three solid meals plus a half gallon of milk.

@Moses I suppose it could be due to Mike S' opinion that protein is food, ergo protein supplements are food, ergo calling for food instead of shakes is bad advice. See his comment on Informaficker's answer.

comment Help to add muscle for a skinny guy with fast metabolism
High-protein diets are not the same as very-high-protein diets, and high-protein diets are often called for, as the paper we're discussing makes clear.

And "the methodology used to establish the RDA for protein suggests that strength athletes need approximately double that amount of protein just to stay in N balance..."

comment Help to add muscle for a skinny guy with fast metabolism
From the conclusion of the study linked: "during energy restriction, increased protein intake, i.e. the maintenance of protein intake in the face of decreased energy leading to a relative increase, seems to increase loss of mass, in obese individuals, and protects muscle mass, in both athletic and obese populations. There seems to be preliminary evidence that high protein intake may increase tolerance of intense training.... The risks of high protein intake seem to be minimal for otherwise healthy athletes."
