I’ve heard various recommendations with regards to protein needs for those trying to build muscle. However, I generally hear them suggested in terms of grams per pound or kilogram of body weight. Does this refer to LEAN body weight, or weight in general? Say I decided to follow the advice for getting 1 gram per pound of body weight.
If I had the exact same frame with 40 more pounds of pure fat, should that hypothetical-me increase protein consumption by 40 grams?
