Thoughts and Theories on Maximizing Protein Intake

For example, if you were in the wild and feasted on 3-lbs of tissue protein (your last kill) in an 12 hour sitting, it may take until the next evening for it all to be digested, but not much would be wasted. … The key factor here is that the body is well adapted to dismantling tissue proteins and thus the digestive tract has a built in time scale that inhibits protein waste (note: it may not build more muscle but that isn’t the only metabolic need either).
