3 Reasons for More Protein

The discussion around how much protein should people be consuming is a common one. In a lot of situations this is case by case. 

But generally the average person should be consuming 0.8-1g grams of protein / kg body mass per day. 

For a highly active person who is doing regular weights training they can up their protein intake to 1.5-2.5g grams of protein / kg body mass per day.

The health effects of fat and carbs are controversial. However, almost everyone agrees that protein is important.

Protein has a wide range of health benefits. But today I will be listing 3 reasons why you need to eat more protein, specifically to improve your training goals. 

1. INCREASE MUSCLE MASS AND STRENGTH 

Muscle is made primarily of protein. High protein intake can help you gain muscle mass and strength while reducing muscle loss during weight loss.

2. HELPS MAINTAIN WEIGHT LOSS 

Because a high-protein diet boosts metabolism and leads to an automatic reduction in calorie intake and cravings, many people who increase their protein intake tend to lose weight almost instantly. Upping your protein intake can not only help you lose weight but keep it off in the long term. 

3. PROMOTES RECOVERY AND INJURY REPAIR

Protein can help your body repair after heavy training injury. This makes perfect sense, as it forms the main building blocks of your tissues and organs. Numerous studies demonstrate that eating more protein after heavy training or injury can help speed up recovery. 

In summary, If you need to lose weight, improve your metabolic health, speed up recovery, or gain muscle mass and strength, make sure you’re eating the right amount of protein everyday!
