Total weight or lbm for protein reqt?
 
I am setting up my diet:

In the Protein Book:
Ch13
P.173
Table 1
Male power on cut protein reqt is 1.4-1.5 g/lb


My question is it recommended that I use my total mass or my lean body mass when making this calculation?

I believe it's based on LBM.

Its a trivial difference if you're lean. If too much bf use lbm

Ok, thanks you two.

It says it very clearly in the book that the numbers given are x LBM rather than total mass. This is quite early on. Why not actually READ the book instead of just turning to the recommendations page?

In terms of the difference being trivial if you're lean, this is IMO wrong when you're talking about multiples such as 1.5x.

Example: 190lbs guy at 12%. With a 1.5x multiplier, for bw vs LBM bases, you're looking at a difference of as much as 50g protein. That IS significant, both in terms of requirements and in costs

Shouldve spent more time in math class than 'how to be pedantic about minutae' class

190x.88=167x1.5=250

1901.5=285

285-250=35...funny, this number doesn't look like 50

Yeah, he's gonna have to take out a 2nd mortgage to afford 35g protein :rolleyes:

Clearly you're more enlightened than this guy too.

Hahaha, good ol' Pete.

50g of protein (let's say about 200g of chicken breasts) costs 1$ here in Europe. It's probably 1-2$ in the states as well.

I did not say I did not read the book and I did not say I only turned to and read only the recommendations page. Please don’t put words in my mouth.

As it was already said the difference is 35g but lets assume 50g

One would need 7.4oz of chicken breast to get an additional 50g protein assuming given weight.

Kroger sells @ $3/lbs which comes to additional 0.46lb chick/day. If we apply a %25 shrink rate to cooked vs uncooked wed need 0.61lb/day more.

$3*0.61=$1.85/day added cost to consider this range.

Is $1.85 a significant cost to you? I weep for the proles struggling to survive day to day is this cruel and brutal world.

My question is how you failed to read PDF page 41 and book page 32 that directly addresses this question?
