Just as the title says....how much protein per meals do you guys typically take in?

I know a lot of variables are involved such as body weight, bulking or cutting, etc. And they are always updating the guidelines for what the RDA is for athletes....although I think we know more about that than they do.

But I'm pretty sure the adage that the body can only use so much in one setting is a lot of "bro-science" when it comes to specific amounts.

For example...a lot of my meals are chicken....roughly 250-300 grams at a time which equates to 60+ grams of protein depending on the brand/cut...etc.

I don't have a lot of time to get solid meals in, but like to eat when I do get the chance.

So I figured I would ask what is typical for you guys just to get some demographics in the application we use it for.

Thanks!

60-80g's is usually my sticking point. I like empirical testing with repetitive things like eating. If I get absurdly bad gas or have to shit my brains out, likely too much, If I eat two 60-80g meals of P within 45-90 minutes of eachother I get the gas, anymore and I get the shits, I know there's MUCH more to it than that but thats just a slight rule of thumb for me. But like you said it depends on my AAS and current diet; if im on low carb im not doing that much protein, if im not on alot of gear im not doing that much protein, etc etc.

Also in the 60 grams per meal range ,usually 4 -5 meals. I have 1 scoop of protein powder that's 25 grams for breakfast. That's averaging 265-325 grams a day. I'm 6'4 and 235 lbs currently.

I do if and a lot of times will eat everything in a two hour window. Postworkout is about 150 grams and then another 125 about two to four hour window. Depending on calories and how I feel I will add a third meal and make it a 6 to 8 hour window. Regardless my post workout is always 150 grams protein.

Layne Norton wrote a paper dispelling the absorption myth.

Some of my meals are higher than others. If no carb and protein fat; 60-75 grams, if carbs, 50-60. Higher if I'm eating steak and potatoes :)

45-55 per meal on a cruise.

I use the 90cc scoops for protein powder. It’s roughly 33g per scoop.

It varies a lot. Probably 30-50 during the week and more when there's a barbecue on a weekend.

It varies but usually 20-60g. I try to get about 40g per meal. But for some meals any amount is better than none. I may do a pack of shrimp with rice and it's only 20-25g protein but I don't worry about the difference as for me 25g is fine when combined with carbs. It's not like I am adding in whey to get to a certain amount per meal.

I always knew the absorption thing wasn't right through common sense. I do approx 40g now due to digestion factors and unnecessary bloating. I do bags of rice that are 80-88g carbs to go with the 40g protein. Nothing is exact with the protein for me but as long as I am getting a decent source of protein per meal I am happy.

Now for post workout or if I simply feel like it I may have more. Like yesterday I had about 70g protein from turkey breast post workout. The same if I go to my fav Turkish restaurant as the meal I get has well over 100g protein and I go through that but this is literally once every 2 weeks.

No less than 40 at meal. Usually 60-100.

Depends on how many carbs and fats I'm eating with the meal. I can sit down and kill 100 grams of protein in a meal I enjoy very easy. Like a nice fatty steak or chicken tenders or shrimp lobster etc..

40 grams TOTAL protein. I can’t go above 240g per day. So I add EAA prior to every meal.

That's what I am trying to learn and figure out. :D

I kind of lean towards the thinking that as long as I'm hitting what I think I need for the day...it doesn't matter if it's nothing in one meal (aside from training)...and 100 grams in 2-3 other meals.

Just kicking around ideas of what is better for me as I am getting older.
