I'M 240lbs and take in about 300-350g of protien a day. My question is how much protien can a person digest in 1 sitting? I sometimes take in 120g in one meal is that to much?? I heard u can only digest around 40-50 grams every 2 hours is this true? All insight is greatly appreciated.

There isn't a certain amount... nothing has been proven as far as being able to eat too much. But I do wonder how you are eating 120 grams of protein in one meal(and why)?

Used to be 30-40g. Now I hear its up to like 50g or something.

If you take it in liquid form it gets digested easier too.

Then there's also the question of absorbtion

I used to take ginger root extract pills when i have high protein meals, cuz it helps protein digestion (supposedly). I felt it work, in any case. Helped with all sorts of stomach ailments too.

hope this helps

4 sirloin burgers no bun just a-1 sauce each has 330 calories and 30g of protien (great stuff) I eat all that in 1 sitting with beans or some other type of vegetable.

How can u give "cutting" a set duration? What if his bodyfat percetage is 50%... just as an example...?

Allow me to explain myself.....most pro bodybuilders will go on a "cutting" phase for 12 weeks prior to a contest...isnt that right fellas?

Fat will usually melt right off of me (I got some clen anyway) If i had to take an educated guess I would say 14% tops right now. I am by no means fat little lovehandles though, I really don't like abs ( but I do them). What I mean by cut up is just start stepping up the cardio, I dont ever get all shredded just like to look pretty.
