    Agree. When bulking if you follow a weightlifter style diet your usualy going to get plenty of protein without really trying and if 300g of protein is what you want that is fine.

    It's cutting that you have to watch it more. Less calories to play with and the body has more demand for protein.

    Yeah, I definitely agree with you. My training partner is cutting right now and doing well to maintain strength and muscle by keeping protein very high.

    Briks dunno if you've seen this page http://www.lift-run-bang.com/2011/03...-training.html

    but he is a strong sonofabitch and item #7 shows what he thinks/has observed about protein requirements.

    You're welcome. I like his training philosophy. Balanced and cuts through the bs.

    Look up LeanGains.com.

    You may not want to get into the fasting bit, but there is good information about calorie and carb cycling. Basically high carb, low fat on workout days (mostly starchy carbs), on rest days low carbs (from dairy, fibrous sources) and higher fat intake. Protein is kept the same on both days.
