I know the myth about 30g of protein/meal is bullshit. but i was wondering if there a limit to how much protein can be absorbed and utilised by the body. Let me explain why.
i’m currently 170lbs. I’m following the advice of 1.5-2g of protein per pound of bodyweight. gym 5x a week with additional basketball training+conditioning. i’m taking track of the amount of protein i’m eating daily and have been steadily increasing it week by week. (currently about 270g+/day)
i’m asking because sometimes i’m not able to spread out the meal evenly throughout the day and may have a big meal to make up for it. (i.e stuffing my face during dinner tonight with approx 100g worth of protein. 5eggs, rice, alot of pork, some chicken and a protein shake)
so yea…is it alright to do this? or is this a “waste” of protein(blasphemy!) and the protein will be better absorbed and utilised over more meals throughout the day.
thanks for helping out a noob!
