Here's Lyle's take on daily requirements:


Here's a quote from Lyle that paraphrases Tipton and Wolfe:

That basically sums up our collective scientific knowledge of strengthening, conditioning, and nutrition. We have a ludicrous number of reductionist studies that loose most meaning when placed back into the context of reality. Arguing from individual scientific publications (in S&C, nutrition, and some other fields as well) to actions in the real world for real people is frequently fraught with peril.

Lyle says strength/power athletes should aim for a protein intake of 3.3 g/kg/d yet the current (4th) edition of Clinical Sports Nutrition states that the maximal protein requirement of elite athletes is ~1.6g/kg/d.

Who to believe...... the guy selling the fad diet books or one of the most authoritative texts on sports nutrition around?
