MMM my ding ding dong
Just wondering what the consensus is for this, I weight about 165lbs and take in ~25-30 grams per regular shake, ~40-50 after a hard workout. What can the body efficiently process at once?

iirc I came across an article differentiating between people who consumed protein (both groups totaled the same grams of protein) every 3 hours and every 5 hours of the day, and the researchers found that the people who consumed protein every 5 hours had greater protein uptake into the cell.


I'll see if I can find that article, I'm certain it was '08 or '09.

You absorb 100%. What you need to ask is how much you are utilizing. You need to learn more about nutrition and your body before you can receive the answer my son.
