How Much Protein Should I Eat on a Daily Basis?

Protein is essential for your overall health. According to Harvard Health, The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for protein is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. The RDA is the minimum amount of a nutrient you need to meet your basic nutritional requirements. In a sense, it’s the minimum amount you need to keep from getting sick — not the specific amount you are supposed to eat every day.

To determine your RDA for protein, you can multiply your weight in pounds by 0.36. For a 50-year-old female who weighs 140 pounds and who don't normally exercise, that translates into 53 grams of protein a day. (Required Minimum).

According to Harvard Health, for the average person (who is not an elite athlete or heavily involved in body building) it's probably best to aim for no more than 2 gm/kg; that would be about 125 grams/day for a 140-pound person.

Build muscle strength

Building muscle isn't just for athletes or individuals into fitness. Muscle strength is crucial for good health. Strong muscles strengthen bones, control blood sugar, improve cholesterol levels, maintain a healthy weight, reduce joint pain, fight mild depression and simply look and feel good. 

One pack of Fast Protein Whey Protein Powder will provide you with 25g of pure fast-absorbing protein. Drinking one packet in the morning is a great way to start your day. 

We recommend using two servings of Fast Protein daily in conjunction with a healthy diet, mild weight training, and resistance exercise program. For most individuals and occasional athletes consuming 100g of protein a day should be the goal. For serious athletes who work out five days/week, we recommend 200g of protein intake daily.
