When I started bodybuilding 2 years ago I used the optimum anabolics programme so most of my basic knowledge comes from the OA rules on nutrition etc.
For the past two years I have tried not to eat more than 25g of protein per meal as I was told that your stomach can't properly digest more than this amount.
Two weeks ago I started eating 50g every meat (six times a day) along with slightly more carbs than usual, already I have started seeing gains and have gained mass without much bodyfat.
Is 50g too much protein?

Have I wasted two years of possible gains by not eating enough protein?

It's hard to say without knowing any other stats. How much do you weigh? How many calories were you consuming before? How much are you consuming now?

In general, the rule for bulking is take in at least 1-1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight, so as long as you are following that rule I'd say you are fine.

given the title, I expected quite a different subject matter.

no 50g per meal is certainly not too much

Haha, I was thinking the same thing.

Your body will use all the protein you give it in one way or another. 25g or 200g in a serving. Don't worry about it.

I forgot to say, I'm 5'10" about 176lbs, 25 years old. I was probably eating under 2000 calories before maybe under 1500 on some days. Reckon I could make 200lbs one day?

You'll probably need more like 3,000 calories per day if you want to reach 200 lbs this decade.

1500-2000 calories is nothing.

You could see 300/400/500lbs one day. It is all depending on how much you eat. If you want to gain then eat more.
