20g per meal or 30g?

I am trying to just burn fat and thought that I had read in the book to do a minimum of 20g of protein per meal...but now I am reading that it is really 30g per meal.

So, which is it?

The must for breakfasts is 30g in 30minutes of waking (not rising), which kickstarts your metabolism. The recommendation for other meals is a MINIMUM of 20g- which is just a guide since we all have different protein needs. One of the most crucial parts of the plan is getting 30g at breakfast.

    Sam, I keep getting confused. Takes me about 15 to 20 min to get the water down. Then I eat so is it 30 min after water? Or 30 min waking up?

    Nope, you should drink the water as soon as you get up,then prepare breakfast in the time after you've drank the water ( about 20 minutes) then have breakfast- you only need the water in you for twenty minutes before you have breakfast to achieve the metabolism 'boosting' effect ;)

    Sorry is that clear enough? I'll try and simplify the time schedule ( not trying to be patronizing or anything I just want to make it as clear/simple as possible =) )

    Step 1: wake up , don't lie in bed - get out of bed within 2 minutes of waking.

    Step 2: bathroom, weigh in ( 5 minutes after waking)

    Step 2: Drink the ice water.

    Step 3: Prepare breakfast (5-10 minutes after waking)

    Step 4: Eat breakfast ( 25-30 minutes after waking)

    Hope this helps!

I have found in my experience that the more the better for morning protein...I try to get 80-100 grams of protein first thing in the morning. I really can tell after just a few days that this works because my new work shirts my boss got me started out kind of tight but are much looser. I also feel much better and eat less the rest of the day when I eat more protein in the morning...

    Since 3 days I upped my morning protein from 30 to aprox. 60 grams. My breakfast is now 3 oz organic steak tartare, 3 whole organic eggs baked in Coconutoil, and 50 grams of Hemp Hearts. This makes a total of 60 grams of protein.

    This morning after doing this for two days I lost another kilo (2.2 lbs); and The past 3,5 weeks I lost 2,5 kilo (5.5 lbs). My total loss since December 5th is now 3.5 kilo (7.7 lbs). So it really works!!

    I am a 55 yr, 1.76 m (almost 5.8") woman with one kid (and 2 granddaughters..!!). My starting weight was 90.5 kilo (199.5 lbs): this morning 87 kilo (191.8 lbs).

    I am so happy with this result! I am going to post it somewhere else on this forum...
