Another question I get ALL the time as a Dietitian is, “How much protein should I eat?” This seems to be one of the all-time favorite topics of debate among dietitians, personal trainers and bodybuilders. Some schools of thought are centered around a high-protein, low-carb diet. Others are centered around a low-protein, high-carb diet. With all this confusion, it’s no wonder the typical American has no idea how to eat! (More on that topic later…!)
The following link is a GREAT article related to protein: what foods to eat, what type of protein is most effective for your body, what time protein intake is most effective related to exercise, how much to eat.
