I found this today. He (or whoever it is that writes these articles coz I reckon he's too big time for that now!) discusses the best ways to consume protein to encourage protein synthesis, lose bodyfat etc. As is typical of Poliquin there's some hilariously spurious optimisation in there:
"0.82 g/lb or 1.8 g/kg of body weight of protein is the amount to be maximally beneficial for body composition"
Needless to say it's beyond our abilities to account for the number and complexity of the factors that would affect such a number, never mind to two decimal places! But there's lots of good info in there nonetheless:
"First, 10 grams is not a large enough dose to offset protein breakdown or optimally rebuild muscle and lean tissue after training, even if itâ€™s taken in a pulse format every 1.5 hours. You need 20 grams.
Second, a large total protein dose is necessary over the course of a day, but a 20-gram dose is adequate per feeding or â€œmeal.â€ Naturally, you donâ€™t have to take four doses of whey protein. You could take one dose and get the rest of your protein from food, spacing it out every few hours.
Third, itâ€™s recommended that the average person interested in body composition or fat loss only use one dose of whey protein and then get the rest of their protein from whole foods. Or get all of your protein from whole foods if you prefer.
Itâ€™s really body builders and athletes who are aggressively trying to put on muscle or accelerate recovery for intense, frequent training who may benefit from dosing with whey."
