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



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

Clearly you're more enlightened than this guy too.
