About a year ago, my nutritionist told me I could not consume over 30g of protein a day due to an extreme illness I had, but have since beat. The reason for the limitations had to do with ammonia build-ups in the brain. Now I have gotten much more active and am starting some serious workouts with weights trying to build muscle on top of the re-toned up muscles it took me a year to build back up. I already use much more protein than what I was told was safe for me, but with the added work-outs I am also using more protein rather than my usage when I was static.
Now the question: Are there any calculation tables I can study to use my protein inake to the max? For instance, if I do 15 reps and 10 sets of curls using 15 lb dumb-bells, how much protein before and after that part of the work-out would be appropriate? If I can calculate even part of my work-out then I can expand and extend the figures to the entire workout.
Notably, I imagine it depends on a lot of other variables such as muscle size, time, ect. But, that being said, there should be some kind of rule of thumb that the more scientific muscle builders use to determine maximum usage. Thanks in advance for any thoughts here.
