I believe in Dr. Sears ZONE - though I'd like to see his response to the following?
Protein Intake Also Crucial for Cancers
Many do not understand the major importance that excessive protein intake can have on cancer growth.
Eating excessive protein can be an additional synergistically powerful mechanism. When you consume protein in levels higher than one gram of protein per kilogram of LEAN body mass you tend to activate the mTOR pathway, which will radically increase your risk of cancers. It is very easy to consume excess protein and my guess is that most people reading this are. I know I was, and as a result of this new insight I have reduced my protein intake by about half.
To determine your lean body mass find out your percent body fat and subtract from 100. So if you are 20% body fat you would have 80% lean body mass. Just multiply that times your current weight to get lean body mass. For most people this means restricting protein intake from 35 to 75 grams. Pregnant women and those working out extensively need about 25% more protein though.
END Quoting article .....
Lets see for me 100 - 19% Fat = 81% Lean Body Mass
.81 x 163 lbs = 132 lbs
132 lbs = 59kg or 874.2g
When you consume protein in levels higher than one gram of protein per kilogram of LEAN body mass you tend to activate the mTOR pathway, which will radically increase your risk of cancers.
So, according to this I should have 59 grams Protein?
I don't think so.
ZONE: 12 blocks x 7 g per block = 84 g Protein.
What does Dr. Seras have to say about this - though this is a relatively new idea .....
