3. Figure out How Much Protein You Need

art, fashion accessory, produce, food,

Different people need different amounts of protein.

Like, it makes sense that someone who sits at a desk all day and commutes to work needs less protein than an athlete training for competition.

The rule of thumb is that you need somewhere between 0.8 and 1.1 grams of protein per pound of body weight.

When you’re figuring that out, use the body weight you want to be, rather than the body weight you are.

For instance, if you want to weigh 130 pounds, you’d multiply that by 1g and get to 130 grams of protein per day.
