Shouldn't this calculator have a male/female option? My understanding is that the RDA is different for gender, therefore making the amount for bodybuilding different also.

Age doesn't seem to be a factor in the calculation either.

This is so wrong, I got 307g, thats 147g more than I need. Not surprised do, just did this for a giiggle.

Anyway just multiply your current weight in lbs by 0.8 and you will have more than enough protein.
