What happened, you decided to switch to upper/lower after all?
It depends on how big you are, bigger people’s bodies can use more protein. Seems pretty obvious, but some information out there seems to conflict with that. Interesting that Mike Israetel would post something saying to eat 20-40g protein per meal when he used to always post food pics together with macros and it was usually 50-70g per meal.
See these posts, these are from the lady who Stan Efferding wrongly attacked and then turned around and apologized:
EDIT: read the captions with these posts, there is more to it
Notice it say that more protein is beneficial when cutting weight
Mike Israetel is cool, he gives lots of good, free advice on his facebook page and he will answer your questions as well. It just seems like now and then he puts something out that conflicts with other things he said. Also, I didn’t watch the debate with him and Lyle Macdonald but if Lyle wasn’t a complete madman then this would have reflected badly on Mike because Lyle is still right about Schoenfeld. The problem with the “fitness industry” is that you have people elevated to guru status and their opinion is seen as infallible but really they are just ordinary people. Science can help to determine certain things about training and nutrition but they don’t have all the answers and to make matters worse there are people who selectively interpret data to “prove” their point when in reality it proves nothing.
In short, the more we learn, the more we realize we have learned nothing at all. The old-time bodybuilders who had zero data to back anything up said that you should eat 1g/lb of protein and train hard several times per week, it’s not totally precise but that’s basically all there is to it.
