I’ve got some juicy info for you in this video about PROTEIN, and whether you’re getting enough or not!
Let’s talk about protein!
For starters, it’s also called the “building block of life” so there’s a pretty good indication of how important it really is.
It helps you rebuild, recover, and heal from injuries and illnesses! It helps you KEEP your muscle … rather than burn it off if you’re losing weight, and it plays a big role in many of your body’s functions.
The part that confuses people is how much you actually need.
And that answer really depends on a few things … like how active you are, what your goals are, and even your age!
When it comes to how many GRAMS you need every day … that can be anywhere from .36 grams per pound (or 0.8 grams per kg) for untrained, healthy adults, all the way up to .6 to .9 grams per pound (1.4 to 2.0 grams per kilogram) for people who do high-intensity training.
To keep it simple, the range is between 10% to 35% of your daily calories.
Very few healthy people actually have a protein deficiency … but whether they are getting ENOUGH protein for their goals is another matter.
Here are some signs you might need more protein!
