Please advise me on the amt of protein. I would like to gain weight & build muscle.?

2g/kg or 1g/lb. 2 grams of protein (typically whey protein if you are purchasing protein shake as a dietary supplement) per kilogram of body weight. There are about 2.2 kilograms per pound, so divide your weight by 2.2 and multiply by 2 to get a "grams per day" amount for building lean muscle. If you hate math, this calculation equals approximately 1g protein per pound of body weight.
