What boosts your metabolism, improves immunity, and keeps you feeling full? 


I'll give you a hint ..

It's an essential component of healthy nutrition and an absolute must for helping your muscles recover.

It's also an absolute must for great results.

In fact, when women are stuck at a plateau, lack of this macronutrient, is often to blame.

The answer is protein.

So the big question is .. "Am I getting enough?"

Most people aren't.

But if you keep reading, we share a quick and easy formula to help you figure out the amount that's just right for you. 

How Much Do I Need?

Most experts recommend .8 to 1.8 grams per kilogram of body weight. (Lemon, Peter (2000). "Beyond the Zone: Protein Needs of Active Individuals". Journal of the American College of Nutrition

 

An Easy Calculation

 

Figure out the correct number of grams for your body by plugging your personal information into the formula below.

(Weight In LBS) / 2.2 = (Weight in Kilos)


(Weight in Kilos) x (.8 to 1.8) = (Approx. Grams of Protein Per Day)


(Approx. Grams of Protein Per Day) / (# of Meals Per Day) = (Protein per Meal)


For example: If we did the calculation for 150 pounds female: 

150 divided by 2.2 = 68 kilograms

68 x 1.2 = 82 grams of protein a day.


If she's having five small meals a day, that's about 17 grams of protein a meal.

Now it's your turn! How much protein do you need each day?
