The Protein Range Debate | ETP#4
Play • 40 min

Bryan and Aaron provide their take on the protein range debate. Is 0.8 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight sufficient? Is there any beneficial potential in eating up to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight.  Are those upper ranges superfluous or is there any merit? What are the important contextual considerations that warrant a lower protein intake vs. the higher end ranges.

Questions Explored:

  • What is your ultimate goal / importance of context
  • Considerations when trying maximize hypertrophy both with and without concern for fat accumulation
  • Can you lower protein if you are eating at a maintenance level intake
  • Is a higher protein intake more beneficial during a calorie deficit
  • How protein impacts the overall Thermic Effect of Feeding
  • Gluconeogenesis
  • Dietary limitations and restrictions
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Religious and moral commitments and how these can impact what may or may not be realistic for higher protein intakes
  • Protein "overfeeding" studies
  • High protein intake, the relation with renal function and kidney safety
