Wazzup! So, we have a question today from Darren Crouts and he says, "I’ve a question about nutrition. I’m concerned that I’m not getting enough protein even work out I’m putting in. I take protein drink everyday from the protein powder mixed on milk. On the hardest workout days I would do 2 protein drinks. Is it okay? I wish I had more! I’m open to any of your suggestions, thank you, Darren."

So the question of how much protein you actually need to take is a little more complex than what most people would say and here’s why.

You know, if you’re really gonna make, you know, if you’re really gonna make an estimate on how much protein you needed, we need to know, first of all your lean muscle mass. Because I mean, for example, if you try to prescribe someone how much protein they need a body weight, that have might be fat, or that have might be bone density. Lean muscle mass is basically what’s gonna be consuming the protein or would need to consume the protein. That’s one thing that you wanna know.

Another thing that you would wanna know and by the way I’m gonna give you another answer. You don’t have to go through all this stuff.

So another thing that you would wanna know is what your metabolic grade, your metabolic expenditures and how busy you are, how much you’re working other than the workout. And another thing is, not everyone absorbs equally the protein they do eat or drink.

Some people might take protein and might just pass it on through. Pee-pee, poo-poo right on through. And that also happens.

My philosophy on protein, I mean for people who say they have an exact signs of how much protein, they say I weigh 550 pounds and you get so much of your body weight, whatever. That might be a good guideline and that’s something that we give as well. Some people say "That’s too much, or whatever." It’s better to air on the side of too much protein than too little.
