As Off-Road called it, you want to be looking at 1.2g per pound of LBM. With skinnier people the recommendation of per pound of body weight is not going to hurt anyone, but when you're dealing with obese individuals, specifically the really heavy guys, their intake could be far too excessive.
There have been several studies, which can be found on pubmed, that show .8g-1.2g per pound of LBM is sufficient for athletes. If you're bulking, 1.5 isn't going to hurt, but 2g per pound of LBM offers little to no benefit.
Again, this is in the context of an individual who trains frequently and regularly.
Like I said, no such thing as too much at least from food
Who gives a **** if your kidneys or liver work, as long as you can squat like a mother****er and look like a mass of twisting steel!
