How Much Protein ? Back to top

The daily recommended amount of protein varies in opinion, some experts say 0.42 grams per day per pound of body weight which is rather low others say 1.0 grams. The amount you need really depends on what and how much physical exercise you perform, large bodybuilders sometimes eat up to 2.0 grams. It is better to eat slightly more than you need, but a stuffing yourself with protein is not a good idea and will probably end up as body fat, it will also put a strain on the liver and kidneys. If you are not sure ask your personal trainer for advice.


Food Source of Protein Back to top

Foods of animal origin, such as meat and poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products, are the richest dietary sources of the essential amino acids. Plant sources of protein are often deficient in one or more essential amino acids. However, these deficiencies can be overcome by consuming a wide variety of plant foods. For example, grains are low in lysine, whereas beans provide an excess of lysine. It was previously believed that, in order for vegetarians to obtain adequate amounts of protein, all of the essential amino acids had to be balanced at each meal. For example, a grain and a bean had to be consumed at the same meal.
