"1g per 1 lb of lean body mass "
That is the mantra for protein requirements that some spout. The poster is talking about his meat intake I beleive - meat is not pure protein so his actual protein would be less depending on the type of meat.
Hey everyone, thanks for your inputs, really appreciated.
Decided i will be going down the 'dehydration' path for the time being, and getting my kidneys tested for health. Reviewing my blood tests my eGFR is around 80 which isn't ideal i believe 90 and above is better. It even says at the bottom, a recommendation by the Dr's who put together the pathology results, that it's worth considering testing for albuminuria using first morning sample due to falling within the range of 60-90mL/min/1.73m2. I think if anything i could do with reducing my sodium intake a bit, tests show i'm at 144mmol/L with the normal range being 135-145. I've really fallen in love with salt and pepper since start of the year!
You really have to advocate for your own health unfortunately.
Re: 150-200g meat per serve, yes indeed i am referring to the weight of the actual meat not protein. That's about 30g of protein depending on the source in one sitting.
And make sure you're eating plenty of liver. Nothing will pick you up faster than a pound of liver!
