If you are following the BuiltLean Muscle plan and are eating the meals and snacks from the list we provide, you don’t have to worry about how much protein to eat. We figured it out for you.
The amount of protein you eat will be around your lean body mass (everything in your body besides fat) in grams of protein per day or more. For example, if you are 170 pound guy with 15% body fat, your lean body mass is (170)*(1-0.15) = 144 pounds. So eating 144 grams of protein per day is sufficient to help you build muscle. You could even eat 30% less than that and still gain muscle, but we don’t want to take the chance.
