Why do people follow this? Scientifically proven that 0.75g is more than enough for elite lifters even while cutting.
Thoughts /fit/ ?

I for one don't. I aim for around 0.7-0.8.

The longer you lift, the less protein / lbs you need. There's a study for that, search it if you are interested.

the "one gram per lb" is thrown out there because it gives people a high goal to reach for. That way when people fall short (as they most likely will) they still end up around 0.75 grams per lb

1.7-2.4g/kg is the range at which protein synthesis maxes out.

People use 2g/kg or 1g/lb because it is an easy rule of thumb.

Eating more protein to cover your macro needs such as 1g per pound, means you are eating less carbs to meet your calorie needs = less water weight= looking better than dude who eats <1g per lb
>>
>>35513978
but its more expensive to eat more protein and carbs are nicer, besides the difference would be minimal.
>>
Menno pls go
>>
I do 1g/kg and im fine. 4 yrs lifting 660kg PL total
>>
>>35513735
Is good when you're doing a 1kcal cut.
>>
>>35513735
Are you asking why people do things that aren't correct?

Is that what you are really asking right now? Do you want me to answer that? Really?

I remember some broscientist claiming not all protons are equal. Plant proteins supposedly are inferior to meat and milk.

So which ones I need that .75g?

At least in my menu only two thirds of proteins come from meat and milk, at most.
>>
it's .78g/lb LBM

most people eat way more than necessary
>>

It's broscience.

Talk to an actual nutritionist if you're worried about how your diet will interact with your activity level.
