Are you Confused about How Much Protein to Eat?

November 20, 2011 at 12:33 pm Leave a comment

Apparently there has been some recent research suggesting that we should limit our protein to 20 -30 grams per meal. Owning our own studio in the fitness industry, often times our clients look to us for advise and answers to questions they have from information they hear in the media and other sources. I definitely do no know the answer to every question, but do have a passion to constantly learn and read about the topic of nutrition and health. In my opinion, the very best source for finding simple, realistic and scientifically based research is Precision Nutrition.

In a recent article on Precision Nutrition the found the Take Home Message words to live by.

Take-Home Message

    It seems to me that whether someone’s on a hypoenergetic diet (low calorie) or a hyperenergetic diet (high calorie), the one macronutrient they would want to be sure to “overeat” (relatively speaking) would be protein.

    But that’s not what people do, is it? Instead, their protein prejudice often leads them to look for what they consider the bare minimum of protein (whether it’s 20-30g/meal or 0.8g/kg/day), and then overeat carbohydrates and fats instead. That could prove to be a performance – and body composition – mistake.

    To this end, my advice is the same as I’ve outlined in the Precision Nutrition System.

    Women – 1 serving of lean, complete protein (20-30g) with each meal, every 3 hours or so

    Men – 2 servings of lean, complete protein (40-60g) with each meal, every 3 hours or so

    This pattern of intake will make sure you’re getting enough protein to reap all the benefits that this macronutrient has to offer. Not just the protein synthetic benefits.
