Protein Power


This is a great article explaining our fundamental need for protein. It’s geared towards a low-carb or ketogenic diet however it can be equally applied to other dietary approaches. It’s well supported with evidence from scientific studies which are referenced at the end of the article.

The minimum recommendations are 1.2g per kg of lean body mass per day. A person weighing 70kg with a lean body mass of 60kg would therefore need 72g (60 x 1.2) of protein per day. Protein need increases with activity so if you exercise a lot then your need for protein will be higher. The main takeaway is to ensure you’re getting enough protein every day.
