close dalts...

if you aim for around 1 gram per pound of bodyweight you should be fine...so if your 200pds than 200 grams should do the trick

bear this in mind...all protein excpet for immediately after training should come in actual food form

if you're 200pds then yes 200g...if your only 150pds then only 150g

eating food will get you bigger quicker than 1 muscle milk a day will

big and lean is way better than big and bulky

does this amount of protein (1 gram/pound) apply to building muscle only or to losing fat as well?????

both but protein may be slightly higher for fat loss due to lower carb content but healthy fats should increase more than protein does

You also have to know that bodybuilding needs different kinds of body building supplements in order to help your body be on its most favorable condition to cope up with the concentrated training requirements in bodybuilding. But, many people assume that taking bodybuilding supplements is sufficient to get that body you desire. Some people simply take bodybuilding supplements and do not work out at all. They consider that body building supplements will permit their muscles to boost in mass with little or no workout at all. Protein Supplements – This product is generally in the whey protein form. The muscles normally need proteins, because it is the main building block of the muscles. You can usually get protein by consuming meat, eggs and other protein giving foods. Yet, whey proteins can be absorbed by the muscles faster and at a higher rate. This means that it will build up your muscles more and will support in giving extra muscle mass to make your muscles better.

Our protein needs depend on our age, size, and activity level. The standard method used by nutritionists to estimate our minimum daily protein requirement is to multiply the body weight in kilograms by .8, or weight in pounds by .37. This is the number of grams of protein that should be the daily minimum. According to this method, a person weighing 150 lbs. should eat 55 grams of protein per day, a 200-pound person should get 74 grams, and a 250-pound person should eat 92 grams.

That wouldn't necessarily hold water in mind though.

The problem is a 250 person, if they were a steroid using bodybuilder would eat way more tnan 92g protein per day, that's a fact.

If the person was 250lbs with around 60lbs-80lbs of excess fat, compared to someone who was 150lbs and consuming 55g protein per day, if the person was 170lbs wxcluding fat, they might have most of their extra non-fat weight from bone and water, not necessarily just from muscle, so there could be mitigating circumstances with such things.

However as a general guide, excluding large well built individuals, the calculations given would be a fesible guide for most people.

It is an important in meal.One cup of milk has 8 grams protein.In adults, 10% to 30% is sufficient. It depends your age,size and activity level. It plays an important in all cells.
