I go to Rutgers University. I really didn't get many points off at all for the excess protein but found it a bit funny that she would take points off for it.
I'm sure she has mounds of literature to back herself up, and literature does actually say that you need 1.6-1.7 for strength/power athletes, but I explained that I was way over recommendations and tried to justify myself through some of my favorite sports nutritionists and strength coaches.
Thats the reason Im a little mad about why she took off points. Ultimately, the assignment wasn't to eat a perfect diet, but analyze what you eat regularly. I'm sure she wouldn't mark off points if someone else ate an excess amount of gummi bears.
The meeting is this tuesday, I'm not trying to argue with the professor, but just to explain that I didn't state that literature says I need that much protein. We'll see.
