#1 Most Popular Post of the Week: Protein Consumption

Protein, it's what's for dinner...and breakfast and lunch and snack

 The myth that you should only consume 30 grams of protein at a time because the rest is wasted is just that, a myth. What’s important is how many grams you have per day, not how many meals it takes to get there. You should aim for 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight a day, more active individuals should aim for 1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight a day. So if you are a very active person and weigh 180 pounds, try to get in 270 grams of protein per day regardless of how many protein rich meals you have to have to get to that number be it 1 meal or 10.
