Protein Question - How much to intake for body fat percentage loss?
I've started eating primal about 2 months ago. I've been losing about 0.5 lbs a week. I have a copy of the Primal Blueprint and inside it covers the caloric details needed to lose weight. On MDA I've seen some sources say to intake about 1g of protein / 1Lb of body mass, but in the book it says 0.7g of protein / [B]lean[/B] body mass. My lean body mass comes out to ~78Lbs because of my high body fat %-age.
There's a huge difference between 120g of protein and 78g of protein. I've been eating more in the range of 110g of protein. 20g of protein usually comes in the form of a protein shake. The other comes from either steak/chicken. How much protein should I be eating?
I've been keeping between 50-80g of carbs a day, except on the weekends where my 80/20 moderately comes into play.
Thanks for any help/advice.
