RE: How much protein per lb of weight?
When I started out 9 years ago all the mags said 1g per lb of lean mass, nowadays its 1.5-2lbs of weight. Back then though whey protein was quite new and expensive so the mags didn't push it as much, milk and egg protein was the common protein and if you tried to consume 100g+ of that in a day you generally suffered. Whey is more affordable now and better on the digestive system compared to milk and egg, so you can guess why the reccomended figure has more than double in a few years!. I certainly dont know of any research that conclusivly proves more is better.
