Default Protein Requirement Based on LBM or TBM

I was trying to find this through the text, and I know you addressed the issue somewhere but at least for me, it was not 100% clear.

Just on doing some basic calculations, I'm assuming you're basing the requirements on LBM, but I know other people will eventually ask so I'm going to go out on a limb here.

The requirement for STR Athletes of 1.xx - 1.xx that you spell out in your chart is based on LBM, correct?

Thanks a mil.

the full discussion is in chapter 4 protein requirements and I couldn't have been more detailed than I already was

essentially: use total body mass. unless you're carrying tons of fat in which case it shoudl be scaled slightly

seriouosly, page 32-33

Wow, 322g of protein just seems ungodly.

That is more than double my current protein intake. If I am trying to keep my calories at 2400, that leaves me 100g of fat and no carbs.

As far as I know I should be getting in about .5% fat per LBM. Is that consistent with your understanding?

230 * 0.8 * 1.4 = 257

What the hell? You just said to use Total Body Mass. Then you threw in * 0.8 to make it LBM... Either I am being remarkabley dumb right now or you or i are missing something here.

I am bamboozled!

What about fat?

"use total body mass. unless you're carrying tons of fat in which case it shoudl be scaled slightly". You're carrying tons of fat.

I haven't read the book yet but i guess that he uses 0.8 just because 20% BF for a man is quite a lot...
