Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Anywhere from 1.2-1.7 g/kg for athletes is the ACSM guideline which is about .5-.8 g/lb. Average person who isn't training needs even less. The definition of athlete there is pretty loose as well, basically if you're pretty active shoot for 1.2 g/kg

Too much protein can give you problems, and if you have a well rounded diet then you really don't need the protein shakes. I personally don't use them but i eat a fair bit of protein. All i really do is make a small glass of chocolate milk when i get home (like 200-250ml).
