You would never guess that it’s protein!
Yes, in my 25 years of practice it’s the single most common deficiency I have encountered in my clients, especially women.
So, are you eating enough protein? Plug your weight into this simple formula to see if you meet the minimum daily requirement:
Your body weight in pounds divided by 2.2 = number of grams of protein required each day. Please note, this is the bare minimum.
You will need more if you are:
- recovering from illness, surgery, broken bones
- under excessive stress
- exercising intensively more than 6 hours/week
- pregnant or nursing
Ideal protein intake should be closer to 50% more.
So for a 150 # person the range would be 63 – 94 grams/day….or 9-13 ounces.
Here’s the protein content of some popular foods. Do the math. Are you getting enough??
Each 1 ounce portion below equals 7 grams.[/vc_column_text] [/vc_column] [/vc_row] [vc_row] [vc_column width=”1/3″] [vc_column_text el_position=”first last”]
Shrimp, crab, lobster
Are you in the ballpark or “whey” off ….if you find you are low, a smoothie a day will give you more energy to play!
