    what kind of protein shage has 60g of protein?
    one scoop of my choccy protein powder is 30g of which 24g are protein.
    Add 300ml of milk (10g protein) makes 34 in total

      why 60g? just use 30g as everyone else.

      i do two or three scoops for a single shake, and i usually drink two shakes a day
      sounds like i've been wasting my money then

        I'd honestly put more scoops as well as I already have a hard time reaching my protein goals
        but 3 scoops would turn the consistency to shit and either make it some kind of viscous smoothie or I'd need like 2L of water/milk to make it palatable

        one serving at a time, be it 30g or 40g, two times a day
        that's all you need

    False. The human body has a nearly unlimited capacity to process protein. Studies have proven it. Also, think about how insane it would sound if someone said that about carbs.
    I can't get enough protein on a cut without shakes, and yes they are highly effective.

      There's a hard limit for calories, but I have no idea about absorption for tissue repair and growth.

      Carbs are stored as glycogen. There is no storage for amino acids

    A new study that just came out recently proved that after a workout you can use up to 100g of protein, even in untrained individuals. Any other meal of the day, and 30g per meal is a close enough figure

        If your workout is short (30-45 minutes) I’m sure it makes no difference. If you’re workout is long, probably wise to have a small pre workout snack, followed by a large post workout meal

    1g protein per pound of lean mass is a meme.
    The actual studies show that 0.8g or even 0.6g protein per pound of lean mass is enough for natty gains.
    Once you throw in a few high-protein meals per day using eggs, dairy, lean meats, etc., you should find that either you don't need the protein supps at all or you can get enough coverage with only a scoop.

      Those are typically just based on "optimizing" MPS. MPS, though potentially having an impact on hypertrophy is not necessarily predictive of the mechanism for it. Most of your mass gains will be a couple days after MPS stopped being elevated in response to exercise. Even if 0.6 or 0.8 is "enough" for some gains, you might be able to make more of those gains with more protein especially on a caloric deficit. Many people will likely find that more protein is better.

      >>i've heard some shit like your body can process only so much protein at a time
      >False. The human body has a nearly unlimited capacity to process protein.
      There's a hard limit for calories, but I have no idea about absorption for tissue repair and growth.

      >absorption for tissue repair and growth.
      Protein is absorbed based upon how easily the particular protein is broken down into amino acids in the stomach and whether or not it enough of it can be absorbed in the small intestine. The amount of protein that can be effective broken down is determined by how reactive that protein when exposed to the digestive enzymes and acids in your stomach. After that, it's simply how long protein is allowed to stay in your stomach and your small intestine and how much the small intestine is able to easily absorb in that time period.
      >There's a hard limit for calories
      The amount of calories you can absorb is dependent on your ability to spend time near heat sources. The nutrients that can be absorbed are limited only in the same way protein is limited.

        No, I mean there's an actual hard limit for producing energy from lean protein. Rabbit Starvation is a thing.

    just make eggnog (whole milk, eggs, nutmeg, cream optional)
    Eggs are ~7g protein each, and so is a cup of milk.
    3 eggs + 2 cups of milk = 35g protein
    all whole food, with enough fat and carbs to digest well

      It is. It's just binge eating disorder presented as a diet. It's "fine" in the sense you can probably get all the protein you need in the 6 or so hours that it's pulling aminos out your intestines but it would be really shit to build muscle on even if you hit your protein goal. At that point satellite cells are probably still multiplying and pulling aminos before they've all fused into muscle cells.

        historically, for almost all of human history, continuously eating 3-6 meals a day (+snacks) would be the eating disorder. one meal every so many days would be the norm.
        I'd also guess that spreading out protein intake over the day would be better for muscle gains, but there actually isn't much scientific evidence for it and studies like

        https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/38118410/

        even point in the opposite direction.

          Don't go jre with the pop anthropology. I wouldn't be so sure about trusting the new research in the context of trained individuals continuing to train. I gets progressively harder to activate the mtor cascade that grows new muscle and the approach thus far has produced decades of fit men so I don't see a reason to throw it out until it's been so concretely demonstrated as the superior approach.

          basically. you kill something and suddenly have 200 lbs of meat to eat and no refrigerator so you binge and then don't eat for a few days. this is how animals are

            Except that's not how humans work. The amount of energy expended would be vastly greater than what you could consume at once. Not to mention wild animals before domestication were extremely extremely lean. You'd never be able to get enough calories.

    Yes it's mostly a meme now.
    Because it lost it's price advantage over real food. Whey was used largely to offset the costs and lack of variety in higher protein diets. So you could more or less eat like a normal person with a little extra protein and built muscle on one or two scoops added to that. Especially if you're tall and already have a much larger more expensive body to feed. Now that everyone is using it as a food additive to charge more for dumb shit like protein candy bars, protein pudding, waffles, icecream, muffins you pretty much name it if it's cheap and mostly flour tier ingredients you add whey to it and now you can charge an exorbitant markup. They can buy it in much larger quantities and much cheaper than you so they effectively control the supply. Even things like pea protein and onions isolate have gotten to insane prices because they're having similar supply issues.
