Your personal best – Are you getting enough protein
If you are active it is widely accepted that you consume about 1-2 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight per day.
If you weighed 70 kilograms, you would look to consume between 70 grams of protein at the lower range and 140grams of protein at the higher range.
Factors that help you decide to go lower range or higher range are
Sex, weight, how many calories you consume each day, exercise/activity levels and intensity, and the body composition goals you want to achieve.
When would you typically be getting your protein in?
- Balanced Lunch
- Balanced dinner
- (Possibly post workout)
When is the best time to eat protein?
Often people make a mistake by having most of their daily protein intake in one sitting, for example dinner in the evening. This is not good for keeping blood sugar stable and keeping energy level through the day. Protein should be included in all meals and snacks. Immediately after your workout, you are like a sponge ready to absorb nutrients, your body is incredibly receptive to using protein for repair and building lean muscle.
Great sources of protein
