How much protein should I actually consume ?
How much protein should I really be consuming daily?

Many of you know our sister Brand, Badger Fitness, a 24 Hour Gym, where we've had the pleasure of working with THOUSANDS of individuals on Nutrition & Exercise.  That being said, I know how common this question gets twisted, turned, and burned.

I still remember 15 years ago in a college Nutrition class going over the recommendations.  Things have changed a bit!  I'm seeing a trend in an increase of recommended daily protein throughout the years, especially those who are active.

We all know that protein repairs muscle tissue, but did you know protein is the least likely macro nutrient to turn to fat?  The digestion of protein alone burns roughly 25% of the calories just by passing through!

If you're reading this, you are definitely active, and I would suggest getting anywhere from 0.75-1.25 grams of protein per pound of body weight.  This is a wide range, and it's always best to take information as is with slow implementation consistently and see how you feel.  Do, assess, modify, and do.
