Yes protein is important to us, but most people trying to gain muscle mass will overload on protein, believing this can help increase muscle size quicker.

In reality, our body’s will only use what it can absorb for our size. The rest will be stored as “energy” and turn into body fat.

Studies show a typical person should take in 0.8 grams per kg of body weight or 20 grams of protein a meal, and for athletes, 1.2 to 2.0 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day, depending on training.

Remember Protein intake should be spaced throughout the day and after workouts.
