Just a comment, the 190g/day is a [u]maximum</u> recommendation. To put that in perspective, that's the equivalent of about 6 ounces. (okay, yes there's other stuff in a steak or an egg, but the point is, it's not as much as it sounds).

Yes, you need more protein if you're exercising hard daily vs sitting on the couch, but don't overdo it and get into excess protein eating. It's a common misconception that we should be eating a cow a day to survive.
