Default Anyone have their book handy?

I'm trying to remember how much protein they said to get in to prevent muscle wasting (or, at least, I think it was them... who can keep up )

It was something like 1g per... what, pound? pound of lean mass? total weight? Argh I'm drawing a blank and my book is at home.

Help

A woman of your weight needs 34g of protein per meal.

Is that based on three meals? Because I usually don't do three meals...

So like a little over 100g per day?

Seems about right. I seem to be averaging somewhere between 95 and 115... guess my body really does know it's cutoff point

maybe some of it could be muscle. You may want to make sure that you get your protein in first, and then add carbs and fat around that protein to satiation.

I am having problems eating meat, all of the sudden I can't get it down, I have lost my appetite(from re-starting induction 5/6/08) I have a bit of a sore throat-comes with pollen allergies every year & thus am having a little bit of trouble swallowing-hence all the eggs & tuna drowned in mayo. Soy protein is not an option-GI upset & other protien powders make me gain weight hand over fist. Is there something else to try for extra protein?

If you aren't dairy intolerant, you could try whey protein.
