if you eat 4 360 calorie dinner with only 15 - 20 grams of protien how does it add up to 300grams of protien??
considering that's 1400+ carlories right there?
You aren't the brightest crayon in the box huh?
It's called the 4/4/9 rule.
1 gram protein = 4 calories
1 gram carbohydrate = 4 calories
1 gram of fat = 9 calories
He is referring to pure proteins, pure carbs, and pure fats.
As for how much protein to ingest, Don is blowing it out the water, like most do.
I'm about 270lbs now and fairly strong per say,
There is no way in hell I could ingest 540grams of protein on a daily basis, lol.
I consume around 300 or so grams of protein a day and it has worked well for me,
but you know how this game goes...everyone's a know-it-all,
therefore I just have learned to watch what big people do(at least the natural ones) and learn from them.
Any kid can get big on the juice, I've seen many blow up and shrink down.
Meanwhile, I take months off(mainly because of slacking), and lose very little.
To each there own though.
Good luck, it's a lot of hard work regardless.
