How Much Protein Do I Need?

Posted by in News

… only 70 days until the book release!



How much protein should you have in your diet?  Generally, you’ll want between 15 and 20% of your daily calories to come from protein.  You’ll want to make sure that the proteins you’re picking are from lean meats and non-fat dairy products so that you’re not taking in a high fat content with your protein.  Other good sources of protein include nuts, soy, grains, beans and vegetables.

Eating protein is a great way to fill up because you can eat less of it than other foods, and feel satisfied faster and longer.  Protein is also used for increasing muscle mass and for maintaining the respiratory, immune and cardiovascular systems.

Of course, you’ll still want to eat a properly balanced diet that is rich in all of the necessary nutrients.  Be sure to check the nutritional label to see how your food measures up.
