How Much Protein Do You Need?


You can buy as a powder and mix it with milk or water. You can get it from our chicken breast or ground beef.

What’s so special about it, anyway?

The supplement and bodybuilding industry tells us that we need as much as humanly possible.

Meanwhile, certain health experts and vegan/vegetarian supporters claim that we benefit from small amounts of protein, and any excess is actually harmful to us.

Who’s right? Who’s wrong?

See my answer below.

Rarely are answers ever found in the extremes. They do, however, tend to fall between extremes.

You do certainly benefit from consuming a decent amount of protein, but that amount is neither sky-high nor tiny. Get a sensible amount, enjoy the moderate benefits, and keep working hard to make sure the other aspects of your diet and lifestyle are in-tune for your goals.
