My body weight in kg is about 47. There is no way I can eat only 47 g of protein every day. I eat way above 100 g. I'm actually trying to gain weight and following a low carb diet, there is no way I can keep my high fat/moderate protein/low carb ratio without eating a ton of protein. I got my kidneys checked and apparently everything is fine and dandy. So I'm just wondering if there's anyone out there who eats like 3-4 times their recommended amount of protein on a daily basis.
A position statement published by the ADA, DOC and ACSM recommends that endurance and strength-trained athletes have between 1.2 and 1.7 g/kg (0.5 - 0.8 grams per pound) of protein for the best performance and health.
you have to up your carb intake if you want to be able to lower your protein intake. If you are glucose deficient then your body needs protein to meet the glucose needs of the body. I would suggest adding some starchy tubers to your diet.
I'm very interested. Im at 53kg and having a hard time eating leas than 150g protein. I always choose fatty parts of meat, such as belly an rib to get the fat up. Maybe my calculator is wrong? I can down 250g of pork belly no sweat (1000kcal). It's a bit scary.
are pork rinds healthy? 11 Answers
