There is a lot of confusion on why you should take protein, and how you should take protein

First of all, let’s talk about why you need protein. This is a very simple question to answer. You need protein because that is what your muscles are made out of. So in order for them to grow, you must supply them with the appropriate amount of protein.

Now, for the second question: How should I take protein? There is an easy little calculation, that you must remember, that will tell you exactly how much to take per day. It’s a little different for men and women.

Women:

You need to take approximately: 1g of protein X your body weight = g of protein per day.

Next, divide that number by 6 meals, and that is how many grams of protein you should be eating per serving. By the way, you need to be eating 5 to 6 times per day.

Men:

You need to take approximately: 1.5g – 2g (depending on if your goal is for general fitness or bodybuilding) X your body weight = g of protein per day.

Divide that number by 6 meals, and that is how many grams of protein you should be eating per serving. You also need to be eating 5 to 6 meals per day.

Now, this is for both men and women, If we don’t eat enough protein every day, our body will actually suck protein out of your muscles to fuel other parts of the body. You have all heard of muscle atrophy. Well that’s what it is, in a nutshell.

Last, but not least, if you eat too much protein in a serving or per day, you end up just passing it down the drain. Which is waste of money.
