It still is to this day, though good science points to 1.6 to 2.2 grams per kilogram of bodyweight per day as a pretty good guideline. But one question that probably causes even more controversy and confusion is this one: “How much protein you should eat at each meal?” Differently stated, “How much protein can your body absorb or digest in one sitting?”

These fractional plates allow you to increase weights a little at a time, which helps you avoid plateaus and keep making muscle and strength gains continuously for years...
