The lifter will also have to have enough calories to grow, so it makes sense to make up the difference in carbs and fat.
Yes, I retract this statement.

But if you consider the sources I've mentioned - the OP can eat up to twice as much as his trainer has recommended with no adverse effects, IMO.

None of us can say for certain that 200, 250 or 300 grams of protein per day will absolutely produce significantly more gains, but it's a good start and there's nothing to lose.

I used to be overly worried about urea and stressing my kidneys, as I have consumed too much protein in the past. But when using a variety of natural sources I have experienced no issues whatsoever.

And I still don't think the OP's trainer is more knowledgeable than the MAB community combined, so I recommend scrapping her and starting a free log here instead!
