How many of you eat less than 150g of protein per day?
I don’t have any kidney issues, as tested by the doctor, but ate at least 1g/lb/day (~230g). I could never feel/get hydrated and at night would wake up ~5 times to drink water and take a piss. I don’t think my body could keep up with all the ammonia flushing out. I felt like shit.
Now, I eat maybe 100-150g. I actually feel hydrated now and can actually sleep through the night without that horrible vicious cycle. I feel great.
So where did this ‘you must have high protein intake for any gainz’ come from anyway? Supplement companies?
Also, I don’t understand low carb. Studies have concluded that testosterone is highest when your carb intake is twice your protein intake. So why would you want to promote lower testosterone even on a diet???
A lot of what I see people regurgitating on any forum doesn’t seem like good advice. Even from the gurus…
