    Moderate protein necessary for high calories

    I've always seemed to have trouble losing weight when eating bodybuilder level of protein. Was scanning PubMed on nitrogen balance and found this interesting study. These sedentary people had a weight maintenance diet of 40kcal/kg and were found to be in nitrogen balance. But they were only...

    Optimal Protein Intake Is Likely 20g-30g Per Meal

    Please keep in mind that by "optimal" these studies consider what is the optimal dose of protein per meal for muscle protein synthesis. The dosage may be different for other people depending on the circumstances. Malnourished, hypothyroid or liver-disease people may need more or less depending...

    High Protein Diet Prevents & Reverses Fatty Liver Disease (steatosis)

    A high protein diet (35% of calories) completely prevented fatty liver disease (steatosis) and reversed existing one caused by high fat diet (45% of calories). Assuming a 2000 calorie diet, 35% protein is 175g, which is not that much and achievable with food alone. So, for the people who cannot...

    Raw Protein vs. Cooked Protein

    This is something I've been thinking about a lot lately because recently we put our cocker spaniel (who is plagued with bad skin problems) on a raw diet of beef, beef organs, beef bone & veggies. We can buy it at a local natural pet market and it's just as affordable as the crappy pellet foods...

    Too Much Protein At Once?

    I was mixing my regular milk/skyr/sugar/glycine/taurine smoothie and started wondering if 50g of protein at once was too much. A lot of bodybuilder sites say 30g is the most the body can use to build muscle, but I'm more interested in metabolism in general. Any thoughts on whether 50g is too much?

    List of foods sorted by protein per calorie

    A spreadsheet list and an image. Since this came from a "fitness" blog it has non-Peatarian foods but I think it may be useful for people trying to increase their protein intake efficiently (i.e. with less ingested bulk). http://imgur.com/nHFX4sY https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ...

    Protein Requirements Increase With Age

    Ray has written on the dangers of chronic protein deficiency and often recommends at least 80g of protein a day. In younger people (20-30 years old) the anabolic effects of protein peak at about 20g of protein per meal. It looks like in older people the requirement is higher. I have known about...

    High Protein Intake Increases Muscle Mass Even W/o Training

    We know that Ray recommends 80g+ of protein a day and says that ~120g should be enough even for the most active individuals. This study looked at what happens when you increase protein intake even more. There were 2 groups. The "normal" intake group consumed ~120g of protein a day and the high...

    Even protein distribution in meals is healthier than a bolus

    This may sound rather obvious, but until at least 2010 the consensus "expert" opinion was that protein was protein no matter how and when you consume it. In fact, some "nutritionists" were advocating eating most of the protein at night. A high dose of protein will drastically lower blood sugar...
