Not entirely sure what you mean by maintain yourself but protein doesn't make you bigger unless you're working out. Even if you are working out eating that in one go is pointless, I'd say there's 40-50 grams of protein in that bowl and eating that much in one meal is pointless since your body can't store it anywhere.

Why would your body want to store it?

I doubt someone would talk about maintaining and complaining about being skinny if they weren't talking about working out. Your body uses protein the best way it can so it will only store it if it needs it e.g. repairing and building muscle.

You need to read a book or something I'm afraid.

The majority of protein we eat is deaminated in the liver and used for energy, just like fats and carbohydrate.

The rest of it is used for intracellular signalling processes.

Even when people weight train, it is only an exceptionally small amount of protein that is used as the actual building blocks of muscle tissue.

You asked where is it stored, using it for energy is breaking it down into amino acids therefore it isn't protein anymore.

Obviously, but it's irrelevant information.

All protein you eat will become amino acids before leaving the gastrointestinal tract anyways. It's what happens afterwards that matters.

Your GI tract can easily break down and absorb 50g of protein in one serving and your metabolic pathways can easily use 50g of protein for various processes, even if eaten in the same meal.

He wouldn't be talking about maintaining and being skinny if he wasn't working out, if you work out and then eat a lot of protein all that protein isn't used for repairing and building muscle, only a small part of it is. We're not talking about the body using protein for all sorts of other jobs.

Why are you posting this?
Because this is SUPPOSED to be where noobs can get help with their diet. To work out if I'm eating or rather being fed enough for gains.

You've been given decent advice - weigh the beef - look up roast beef nutrition info on google

That's it

Does it not come in some sort of packaging with the weight on it? Work out what fraction of the full pack you eat and you've got the weight

Er no, or at least the packet had been thrown away by this point. I will bear that in mind for future though, thanks
