Watched Dr. Oz today and he recommended 75 grams of protein over the course of 3 meals, looked at my reports, and the highest I have ever had, is 66. Of course he recommends lean protein, but just checking to see if others do this? If so, any meal suggestions. Thanks

Protein shakes, Protein bars. I found good ones at Sam's club.

My macros are set at at least 100 grams of protein.
It's not too hard for me, but I live a low carb lifestyle.
Feel free to check out my food diary.

Nothing Dr. Oz says is credible.

I am big fan of higher protein intake than MFP recommends. You can get protein from eggs, meat, fish and beans. I would start there before using powder. You want to do things that are lifestyle changes.

yes, daily goal 80g, but I concentrate specifically on protein.

On what basis did he recommend 75g of protein? A blanket approach for everyone?

And what on Earth is a lean protein?
May 17, 2013 3:37 PM
I do 1 gram of protein per 1 lb of body weight
May 17, 2013 3:38 PM
I try to get at least 100 but my macros is set to 124.

I try to eat at least 80 grams of protein a day. That's minimum. Most days I'm aiming for around 100.

That is the minimum amount of protein most nutritionists will tell you to eat per day for adults. Kids don't need that much.

Lean meats, protein shakes, etc.

lean protein: meats with lower fat content ie: chicken, fish, lean cuts of beef.

75 grams of protein PER meal? Now we're talking.

The protein is still the same O.o

Agree that some of what Dr. Oz is now recommending is starting to remind me more of an infomercial, than actual medical advice. It seems it shouldn't be a set amount of protein, but a percentage based on your calorie intake & current weight. I have mine custom set at 25%, based on the latest nutritional recommendations. If you get too much protein, although I think the opposite is more of a problem, then it can leech the calcium from your body (if you don't get enough calcium) & could cause osteoporosis, especially in women.

Eff that. Bring on the ribeye.

I do 1 gram per pound of LBM, which is 98 grams.

That said, Dr. Oz is not a reputable source of information. Some he gets right, plenty he gets wrong.

I try to go for 90 each day, 100 if I can! I've noticed Dr Oz at the end of each show having a disclaimer against false advertisers trying to say he endorses certain products, about time cause some of the stuff I was seeing his picture next to made me think quack.

Anyways, it's a general number to shoot for and I agree it should be a minimum. To actually figure out how much protein we need, you have to calculate your body weight and activities like weight lifting and such.

That's a new one.

The fat content is obviously what is meant by lean.
4oz of chicken breast and 4oz of hamburger meat might have equal protein
But one is LEAN with less fat and less calories.
Come on now bro!

Agreed. He let a podiatrist tell the world to spray their flip flops with HAIRSPRAY in the summer to keep them from slipping. Hahaha.
BUT.. to get more protein just try the powder's =) I used to make a coffee drink and mix it in there. It was Yummy <3

I would be very interested to know where this information has come from ? If you could point me in the correct direction I would be most grateful

i eat 180 grams of protein over 5 meals. His 75 grams recommendation is reasonable, depending on your weight and your goals, of course. If you're trying to build muscle or engaged in strenuous physical activities it's most likely too low.

Heh, excuse my intentional ignorance. I drew attention to it intentionally because, from what I've seen already, there's a lot of myths and broscience going to crop up in this thread and wanted to head off there being a seperate kind of protein which is lean :D
