Dr. Tucker’s Perfect Protein Intake Plan

A new study challenges the assumption that you can only absorb and utilize 25 grams of protein in one meal.

Anything more than this won’t increase muscle protein synthesis or anabolic signaling —those excess amino acids will be oxidized (broken down), the thinking went...

For those doing strength training and Intermittent Fasting (16-20 hours daily), if for example you calculated your protein requirement and consumption needs to be 120 grams per day for muscle development and growth, you would have thought you needed to distribute your protein (120 grams per day) over 3-4 meals per day. Getting 30-40 grams of protein every 3 hours was the old school thinking. Based on this new information, for those that prefer 2 meals a day, you can consume 60 grams per meal and get the same outcomes.

Getting enough protein can be challenging. I use OrthoMolecular MitoCore Powder in shakes to help me get my protein.
