Thanks for the input. I've been a little scared off by protein powders because i thought only foods created a thermic effect and protein powders weren't natural, but if there aren't any other objections, i'll start integrating them slowly to get in that 1 gram/lb. Usually I've been on about .5-.6g/lb at best, but hopefully this change will help
