Training Hard, Eating Well, But Are You Getting Enough SLEEP?
Protein is made up of amino acids, the building blocks of many tissues in the body, including muscle. Certain amino acids are “essential”, which means the body cannot make them and they must be obtained through your diet. When you workout, you breakdown muscle tissue. In order to repair that muscle tissue and gain lean mass and become stronger, you must give the body protein to supply the amino acids needed for recovery. If you do not get enough protein in your diet your body will not have enough amino acids, specifically essential amino acids, to work properly and recovery from workouts. Where will it get these amino acids you are lacking? From your muscle tissue! All that hard work will be wasted!
Now that we know why protein is so super important, let’s find out how much protein you need….
The recommended daily allowance of protein for sedentary adults is 0.5 grams per pound of bodyweight
Protein intake for physically active individuals! (this is you) aim for 1g per pound of bodyweight.
Try space your consumption throughout the day evenly for best results.
