      when you count up daily protein intake do you say 50 grams of say tuna is 50 grams of protein for the day


      or do you factor its say 40% bio available (or whatever it is for that source of protein) and count it as 20grammes??

      I count it as what the food gives, so 200g chicken is 40g protein (give or take)

      I count the protein content not the weight of the product.

      yeah i figure it like this but my mate was saying like he's changing it to count what is bio available....which kind of makes sense......hmmmm

      like i think tuna IS only 40% bio available which is crap

      whey is 100% available

      To be honest, if you did that then you would be forever researching everything you eat trying to figure out how much of it is bio available... Sounds like a ball ache to me..

      Edit: you'd also be eating a hell of a lot more due to not getting enough protien.

      That makes perfect sense mate. Someone getting 400g protein from tuna a day is not going to gain as well as someone getting 400g from other sources like whey, chicken etc?

      its not a % age my mistake - its a scale

      Here is a quick chart to give you an idea of the bio-availability index rating of some protein sources:

      Protein Source Bio-Availability Index
      Whey Protein Isolate Blends 100-159
      Whey Concentrate 104
      Whole Egg 100
      Cow’s Milk 91
      Egg White 88
      Fish 83
      Beef 80
      Chicken 79
      Casein 77
      Rice 74
      Soy 59
      Wheat 54
      Beans 49
      Peanuts 43

      Ok so i am confused...

      Are you saying that 400g or protien from source A is not the same as 400g from source B? Can't get what you mean with that?
