Because A) I was asking him, B) its not common sense to think of "tarnoplosky" as being the right keyword to search for =p, and C) it doesnt make sense; that 270 gram wouldnt be used. Hes indirectly saying that even if you eat 8000 kcal per day, all from protein (thatd be 2000 gram) you wont gain weight even if you only need, lets say, 3500 kcal for maintenance. 270 gram of protein equals only 1080 kcal, and he claims that not even that much is "useful". Sounds like the ultimate diet if you can eat all the protein you want and the maximal of energy itll give you is (below) 1080 kcal. Prove it BoSox and you can make a lot of money!
