Somone I was just talking to told me that the body can only process 30g of protein in an hour, and he was saying that if you drank a shake with 42g of protein in it quickly, you would only recieve benefit from 30g of it. It didn't sound right because I haven't heard of anything like that reading on these forums, but hes a big boy so I figured he might know what he's talking about. Anyone have any knowledge on the subject?

Not true. Your body is incredibly efficient. It would not waste calories.

I was told this common myth by the strength coach in highschool, it's usually told by the same people that will tell you to do crunchs to get abs, and that high reps tone muscles.

Ideally you should spread your protein throughout the day, (it's easier on your kidneys and liver), but as previously said, your body is going to use what it needs.

Ronnie Coleman has 150g of protein in his post workout shake alone.

Your friend is sort of correct. Your body can only produce 28 grams of protein at once, not hourly. If you take say a 40 g protein shake at one your body will consume 28 grams of that protein and the 12 useless grams you will **** out. No one try to argue with me because i have a degree in exercise science and this question was on the final

And to Tom183, Ronnie Coleman is also on products that enable him to consume much more protein than the average person, also he is on roids aka cheating drugs.

Whether it was on your test or not doesnt mean its correct. How much protein your body can utilize at one time of course depends on one major factor..... the size and makeup of your body. Also, there are numerous theories on the magic number the body can utilize at one sitting....30,40, up to 70. Bottom line, there has been no research done on this specific question so in the end they're all just theories.

Thanks Doobs, any for the guy who said it hasnt been tested im pretty sure it has numerous times. you just have no idea because you dont have an exercise science degree. We actually did test when i was taking the program. Ranges varied from 20 to 50 calories absorbed at once but the most common is 28 grams. Please dont argue again

What happens to the rest of the protein that isn't "absorbed"?

And I'm pretty sure Doobs's post was in jest, FYI.

Yup it's BS.

The 6 small meals a day, spread out your cals thing is only preferrable if it staves off hunger for you (if you're cutting) or if it makes it easier to stuff in the cals (if you're bulking). Otherwise there is really no difference as long as your Pre/Post WO nutrition is adequate.

I can't work out if you're joking or not.

For one thing you say 20 to 50 calories are absorbed.

Considering there are 4 calories in a gram of protein this would change the figure from 5 grams to 12.5 grams of protein. Which is pretty low. Of course you could have just got calories/grams mixed up but I think its unlikely from an exercise scientist.

So if I ate a 10,000 calorie steak in one sitting I would **** out all but 28 grams of it and not gain a lb?...

If you could only take in 28g of protein at once than humanity would have died tens of thousands of years ago when we only ate several massive meals a week and nothing more (for the most part).

Dont need an exercise science degree to know when Im being fed bull****. Supposedly you're 18 and asking a bunch of stupid questions about prohormones all over the site and now youve got an exercise physiology degee at 18.
Ok saying that your degree is true, show and prove. Give me a link to the research that was done that came up with your theory.

This is not true.

The body utilizes based on need. By your logic someone could starve to death on a high protein diet as they can only absorb 28 grams per meal.

And BTW which school gave you your degree? You should ask for your money back.

Seriously people! If you go over 28 grams you will crap out the extra in powder form! It's been proven by exercise science!!

Out of all the degrees one could lie about, why excercise science?

At least lie about something more difficult, ie chemistry, biochem, microbiology or even biology.

Yeah thats crap. Think about it someone who is trying to bulk and build muscle mass is supposed to take in at least 1-2 grams of protein for every pound of body weight a day. If someone weighs 200 lbs. and eats six meals a day they would only be able to take in about 168 grams of protein a day.

And think about those who IF, or use some form of the "warrior diet". One meal a day (or a 4 hour feeding "window") and the muscle doesn't just fall off of their bodies. Your body will take what it needs.

02-03-2009, 04:07 PM
It all depends on the person's body weight, size, daily calorie intake etc.

You would have to be an idiot to believe your body can only take 28 grams of protein and nothing more. That's nonsensical!

We did test?? On what 2 subjects? I supposed they were other skinny 18 year olds, not bbers or plers or anything else.
You crap out any protein intake over 28 gs? That must be why I crap 3X a day. Not because of the food intake, but because of the protein.

I think we should have you change your screen name to Doogie Houser.

There are several methods like nitrogen balance for example.
