Are you talking about the amount that goes specifically towards muscle protein synthesis? Or are you talking about used as in 'not wasted'?

The answer to both questions is...'it depends.'

It's a prescriptive method without a context. It also focuses on a few factors to determine a result when those factors have a causal effect on other factors involved (e.g. bodyweight, lean mass, training schedule, program, etc.). Lots of the stuff is wrong or arguably pointless as well (protein amounts, timing, etc.)

It's probably a misleading answer if it gives a limit like 50g/2 hours.

I actually the answer was, I don't really give a shit. I've decided I'm not going to waste money on any powders or supplements. No need to overcomplicate things.

This is the best decision. I use protein powders as a convenience thing...like when I'm out of food and need some protein before I go to the grocery. You may want to get some for those type of occasions.

Protein powder is a supplement and not a food. When your bodybuilding and trying to build mass you need 1-1.5g of protein per pound of lean body mass. Say your 200lbs. It's very hard to eat 200 grams of protein in a day and most people grossly over estimate how much they take in a day. A standard piece of chicken (4 oz) is roughly 20 grams for example. Most people can't eat all the protein they need in a day from whole food. So protein powder is used to meet your macro needs and help keep the right macro balance, say 40/40/20 of carbs/protein/fat when bodybuilding. I don't get it when people say o I'm not going to use powders or o you shouldn't use protein powder. It's great stuff when used in the right context if you need it.

Could be a long time. When I was six my father went to the grocery store to pick up some cigs. Took him 27 years to make it home.
