How Much Protein Do You Need?

How Much Protein Do I Need?

How much protein do you actually need each day? You don’t need a whole lot of protein, only about 15% to 25% of your diet depending on how active you are. In fact, less than half of your body weight in grams each day is just fine and your body can’t really process more than about 25 to 35 grams of protein at a time.

What are good protein sources?

  • Pasture raised, grass fed beef
  • Free range organic eggs
  • Free range chicken
  • Wild caught fish (salmon, tilapia, herring, cod)
  • Raw and organic butter and cheese
  • Organic free range turkey
  • Grass fed, cold filtered, concentrated whey protein
  • Raw nuts and seeds
  • Moderate beans and lentils.

Bad protein sources include:

  • Commercial fed animals, they are the sickest by far
  • Pork and pork products
  • Shellfish- they are bottom feeders.
  • Farm raised and GMO fish
  • Conventional dairy
  • Processed GMO soy
  • Large amounts of roasted nuts
  • Popular whey protein supplements.
