Protein is a macronutrient consisting of 22 "building blocks" called amino acids. Proteins have different functions in the body, contributing to the development of muscle mass and to maintaining the muscular system and healthy bones. When you do not get enough protein, it can be more difficult to maintain a balanced diet and achieve your goals.
Aim for up to 30% of your daily protein calories. During exercise, your body needs more protein to grow / maintain muscle and promote recovery, so keep in mind that the need for protein may vary. An active man who consumes up to 2,000 * calories a day and wants to grow his muscle mass should aim to consume 150g1 of protein in his daily diet. For a woman who consumes up to 1,400 calories a day and wants to control her weight, the recommendation should be between 52-105g of protein a day2
Try to consume a combination of vegetable and animal protein daily. Soy is one of the best plant sources as it is a "complete protein" where it provides all the important amino acids. As other vegetable proteins such as nuts, seeds and lentils are not "complete proteins", try to combine a better ratio of amino acids. For animal protein, high quality sources include fish, poultry, eggs and low-fat dairy products, while providing additional benefits such as iron, zinc and B vitamins.
