Protein?

Ok, so I do not know much about protein. Will it make you lose weight or gain weight? I recently heard that you are supposed to eat 50g a day of protein. Looking at what I have had today I would say I have as about 77g. Is that bad?

Re: Protein?

It depends on your lifestyle. I eat about a gram of protein per pound of body weight. That's kind of hard for some. You need protein to build and maintain muscles.

Re: Protein?

hi,
I agree with the above poster.
How much ''protein'' needed in a person's body's daily diet is determinded by over all energy intake as well as the body's need for nitrogen and amino acids.
Dietary Requirements according to the DRI (Dietary Reference Intake) Guidelines
Women age 19=70 need 46 grams/men need 56 per day to avoid deficiency.
tech=theres 2 kinds of protein, do a ****** serch.
Sources of dietary protein include foods such as meats, eggs,grains,legumes, and dairy products.
also being protein deficiency you will lose hair and also become metally retarded...loss of muscle mass low energy levels ect,,ect,, problems multi functions
theres a lot of protein deficiency in third world countries.

FaSho, Adequate protein intake will neither cause weight loss or weight gain, but what it WILL do is prevent your body from burning valuable tissue, organ and muscle, while dieting. In the absence of protein, a body that is extremely low in calories, especially carbohydrates, will try to get glucose for the brain from the next best source, proteins. This can quickly cause poor health unleess it is replaced.

Your 77 grams is just fine.
