YOUR REAL PROTEIN NEEDS FT. ERIC HELMS AND GREG O’GALLAHER

INFO. FROM THIS VIDEO SOURCE:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJsvFePtukU

SUMMARY:

General Range (ERIC HELMS):

0.8-1.3g of protein per pound of bodyweight  (1.8-2.9g per kilogram)

Maintaining / Gaining:

0.8-1g of protein per pound of bodyweight (1.8-2.2g per kilogram)

Cutting:

1-1.3g of protein per pound of bodyweight (2.2-2.9g per kilogram)

What’s important to note here is the protein intake is scaled upwards with severity of caloric restriction and leanness. The higher the body fat percentage, the lower the protein intake can usually be compared to the total bodyweight.

There is no point in arguing about a difference of 0.2-0.3 grams as long as you’re in the recommended range. If you like to eat more protein, do that. If you prefer less, do that instead.The protein intake needed to build and maintain muscle is not as high as most people think.
