How Much Protein Do I Need Everyday?

According to the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tuft University School of Medicine, the following recommended daily intake of protein is:

Below, please find your “Weight,” then determine if you are an” / Average Person,” who tends to be less active, or if you are among the very active or” / People who work out.”

100lbs / 36g / 55g
125lbs / 46g / 68g
150lbs / 55g / 81g
175lbs / 64g / 96g
200lbs / 73g / 109g
225lbs / 82g / 123g
250lbs / 91g / 136g

If you have a desk job, are a student or stay-at-home older person who does not go out much, you are probably the “Average person.” If you are an athlete, work outdoors walking, bending, or if you are a body-builder or work-out several times per week, you would be considered among the “People who work out.”

No food, including protein or protein shakes, should be consumed within 3-6 hours of bedtime; bedtime is a time of rest for the entire body and you cannot sleep well if your gastrointestinal tract is digesting. It takes 6-8 hours to fully digest protein and 3-4 hours to fully digest carbohydrates.
