protein power said minimum requirement for protein is 120 grams per day (thats for someone who doesnt workout)
That is not what MY copy of protein power says!
The amount of protein you need is based on your lean body mass (in my case 141) times an "activity category number" which ranges from 0.5 to 0.9. In my case, the activity category number is .7, because I'm considered "active" (which means I exercise for more than 30 min 3-5 times/week. Since I do ardio for at least 30 min 4-5 tiems a week, PLUS resistance training for at least another 30-40 min 4-5 times per week.
If you multiple 141 times 0.7 you get 98.7. That is how many grams of protein I should get in a day, not 120!
according to your numbers, given in your profile, your Lean body mass is 147 (ht 6'2", weight 195 gives a BMI of 25%. 195-25% gives a LBM of 147), at the highest activity rate (X 0.9) , you would need 132.3. this would be a comptetive athlete in training, doing twice dayly heavy physical workouts for an hour or more.
For "very active" (min of 1 hr/day 5 or more times/week) you'd require 117.6 gms/day.
This is from pages 89-95 of the "Protein Power" book (1998 edition)
