1.49xBW you might want to take one less bite of protein, then you should be fine[/quote]
OP, like it has been said already, tolerances are different for everyone. I will say that when I started to clean up my diet, it took a few months to get my system accustomed to the additional protein.
Also, you might try different kinds of protein powder if you are supplementing with that, to find one that doesn’t give you “gastric distress” and you start losing friends.
1.5XBW is pretty standard for most of the old heads on this board. Some will be higher, closer to 2XBW but you won’t find anyone recommending anything less than at least 1XBW.
