It's interesting in the sense that sometimes the more I read, the more I get confused as there is so much contradictory information out there on the web, in the literature, and in research when it comes to the health and fitness field. For example, I came across this on WebMD after reading this thread:

"So if youíre an adult athlete who wants to build muscle mass, and you weigh about 175 pounds, the most protein you would need per day is 157.5 grams. That sounds like a lot, but one 4-ounce hamburger contains 30 grams of protein, 6 ounces of tuna has 40 grams, and a single ounce of cheddar cheese has 7 grams"

As someone who reviews research on a daily basis (my daytime job) I'm exposed to alot of research studies in both the biomedical and social science fields. It's surprising how LITTLE research comes through the university that I work at regarding health and fitness.

The medical field is full of quick fixes for weight loss and fitness such as bariatric surgery, pills, and diets, but rarely do I see research conducted on exercise science. In the 8 years that I've worked at this job, I can count on one hand the research studies I've seen related to exercise, and most of it has been aerobics. As a sidenote, the university that I work at is one of the top recipients of research funding from the National Institutes of Health, yet, the degree of research being conducted in the fitness field is minute compared to other areas of science.
