Below is a very helpful article on protein from Healthline.
Protein is a big topic these days in fitness and I like giving people information on how much protein to consume.
As an exercising adult, a good rule is to target 1 gram of protein per 1 lb of body weight. That means a lot of people are not getting what they need in protein on a daily basis.
One interesting fact is that protein can help in weight loss not just increasing muscle. According to this article,
"A protein intake at around 30% of calories seems to be optimal for weight loss. It boosts your metabolic rate and causes a spontaneous reduction in calorie intake."
Reach out to me if you would like assistance on getting a plan to get the optimal amount of protein in your diet and which protein supplement is right for you.
