This is a new book to me.....I have read/experimented with PP and Atkins. Been lurking around this board for sometime and decided to purchase PPLP. Now let me say that I have not read the book yet, but did a little 'look thru' last night with regards to the amount of protein to be eaten -- I'm shocked! It states I should be eating 40gm of protein at each MEAL....could this be correct? Looking at the chart they have showing different ounces/egg qtys, etc. that is a LOT of protein. Is anyone here truly following PPLP and really eating that much?

Again, I will admit, I just received the book yesterday and I have not read it, but will, and I could be completely mistaken on this, but thought I'd post and ask! Thanks!

I don't eat that much, but I suspect it would be ok for folks with a lot of weight to lose or those with a bigger frame (lots of the guys) and those weaning themselves off carbs.

I am supposed to (unless I did the figuring wrong) take 60 g protein a day. but for me that isnt enough, i am still hungry, so I eat 80g and that satisfies me.

I think that in general the recommendations in PPLP are higher than in PP — not because they decided people needed more protein, but just to keep it simple. People found the calculations in the original book confusing.
