I think it's estimatly around 1/2 of your body weight, for example if you weighed 150 pounds....75 grams would be sufficient. I think, and I really don't count my protein at the end of the day.LOL, maybe I should.

Re: Protein

I'd say something like 60 grams are sufficient unless in puberty, pregnant, or building lots of mucle with hard bodybuilding.
