WHY WE NEED PROTEIN

– promote muscle maintenance and repair

– necessary for muscle growth

– keeps our body functioning at optimal levels

– keeps us satisfied and energized

– For muscle growth, shoot for 10-35% total calories from protein

(Ex. 50-175g for 2000 calories/day; 75-260g for 3000 calories/ day)

– For maintaining muscle mass, shoot for 0.37g per pound of body

weight (Ex. 55g for 150 pounds, 75g for 200 pounds)
