How Much Protein For Athletes

Posted by: Chris

Protein intake is very important for weight-training athletes and we believe require much more than a sedentary person does. We recommend a protein intake of 1-1.5 grams of quality protein per pound of bodyweight per day. For example, if you weigh 200 lbs. we recommend consuming 200-300 grams of protein a day.

Quality protein can be found in whole foods like eggs, milk, beef, fish, cottage cheese, etc. Because it is difficult to get all of your daily allowance from just foods we recommend supplementing your diet with milk and egg protein, soy, beef, even vegetable, protein. Out of all these different protein supplements, we feel whey protein is the best. Whey protein has a very high biological value (yielding more usable grams of amino acids than other protein supplements), and it's very low in lactose. Whey protein also has an especially high concentration of essential amino acids including glutamine, which is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue.
