    we can only handle 30g of protien per hour

    I was talking to the trainer at the gym, and he said a study was just performed where the body can only handle 3ounces of protien which is about 30g of protien. Now, if i have more then 30 n hour its a waste, but would it be fine if i waited an hour and keep intaking 30g of protien n hour, say 3 hours in the morning, 2 hours at lunch and 2 hours during the night. 30g an hour. is that too much protien in one day to have ?

    This is one of the more inane threads I've read in a while.
    Credulous at best
    Your desire to believe in
    Angels in the hearts of men.
    But pull your head on out of your hippie haze
    And give a listen
    Shouldn't have to say it all again

    I think I would get sick 5 hours into the day if I was pushing 400 grams of Protein by noon.

    wow... your PT has determined something that the general scientific community hasn't been able to for quite some time now. Maybe he has a cure for cancer too!

    Really the body's ability to use protien fluxuates day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute...

    Can he give you the reference to the study? That 30g magical number has been floating around for years.

    I would love to see this study. I just did some searches on our college research site and came up with jack-squat, so have him print up this study for you.

    I got money that his study is: "Well, I heard it from someone else who said there were studies that said it."

    study for yourself, if you see everything you eat going into the toilet, then it might be too much protein, otherwise you're fine. and if it is going in the toilet, scoop it back up and make another shake or its just a waste of protein.

    Soon, if you eat any more than 5g of protein per sitting, you will die...but slowly.
