How much protein(in grams) would do i need to take, im 6'1" 260lbs
depends on your goals....
A lot more than me, pal.
more then you can afford pal
for weight loss
my school books say 1 g/kg. no one on this board believes that tho
I'd say 200g/day. I've also ready that you should try to take 1g/lb for your ideal weight. So if you want to be 200lbs, then take 200g, whether you weigh more or less than that.
BTW, you're not going to gain weight because of eating too much protein.
Its not a matter of believing it. The additional calories are needed for growth and protein is a better source of calories than carbs. Protein will keep a person satisfied so they eat less and still have nutrients to develope lean tissue.
Your book might be out dated as well or playing it safe. The new info i've been reading is suggesting 10-35% of total calories come from protein. So for a 2000 calorie diet that is 50g-175g. The percentage of protein is going to depend on level of activity.
But I like the tuna here.
I almost had you.
If you're going to quote the movie you must do it right!
You never had your car
it doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile
I live my life a quarter mile at a time. Nothing else matters: not the mortgage, not the store, not my team and all their bullshit. For those ten seconds or less, I'm free.
depends on your goals as well as your carb intake. Generally speaking I would say 1g-1.5g per pound is fine. Depends on your bodyfat level too.
1.325° grams per 1╗ of weight.
at fast and the furious quotes
well if it isnt old coyotes r us ... i thought you werent hungry pumpkin
You're entirely wrong.
Upper limit for elite athletes with extreme protein demands is 1.8 g/kg. Most people, and this includes you, only need 0.8-1.2 g/kg.
It's a generally misunderstood number, because idiot brolies like yourself can't understand kilograms, so you just converted it to pounds. Shut the fuck up, you have no idea what you're talking about.
Go fetch your car? We're not on your block any more. You better watch who you talk to like that.
