    That's the high end of border line unneccessary. That calculator is giving 1.5g/lb/d which very few people will say is required and next to no studys with justify.

    The rule of thumb is 1g/lb/d or 2g/kg/d both of which are well below that.
    I've read about twenty different rule of thumbs for every aspect of bodybuilding. Every other article contradicts another. "Eat this much protein"... "no eat this much"... "saturates are bad"... "no that's a myth"... "exercise before breakfast for fat loss"... "no that loses more muscle"... etc. etc. I just play it safe and go for 200g of protein a day. A compromise between the calculator and what CD2112 posted, if you will.

    My main point was that this is a bulking thread and a poor diet was posted... two eggs? What is this? Even for a cutting diet, having basically no protein until post-workout is silly. And 200g carbs is measly, even if the OP is very light.

    Yeah, I agree there wasn't enough food in general but that calculator was excessive. I think most people would be fine around the 180g mark.
