Protein: The nutrient that much of America is guilty of over-consuming. I have written several articles on this in efforts to alert people of the dangers on the over-consumption of protein. Of of the repeated facts I emphasize in my papers is: "Americans consume approximately 100 grams of protein per day and yet, according to the United States Department Agriculture (USDA), their bodies require between 0.8 and 1 gram of protein per kilogram of weight a day, approximately 17.5 grams per 50 pounds (USDA). In considering that the average American male weighs 191 pounds, it can be determined that, by using the USDA figures, a male at this weight is consuming a little over 42% more protein than required (Ogden, et al. 3)."

We really need to monitor our intake carefully- excessive protein harms, not helps, our bodies. That excessive intake can lead to diabetes, kidney failure, osteoporosis, and so much more!!

Hans,

I'm on a bodybuilder diet and training schedule,..

My trainer has me on 1g of protein per LB of bodyweight. So right now I'm at 180 g a day.

Depends on you. Body builders tend to be 1.2-1.5g per lb of body weight (that's a lot), but for guys who aren't that insane but are looking to build muscle .8-1.0g per lb is probably a good range to try.

Similar to Seth's answer I try to hit at least 1 gram per lb of bodyweight so for myself that's almost 230 grams.

Hans, how much are you lifting and what is your goal? That can change the amount of protein that you need to take in each day!
