Do you ever find yourself Googling, "How much protein do I need?" or "How much protein should you eat for weight loss"?

I tried it. I got nearly 16 million results in about a half a second.

You know what would happen if I sifted through those "answers"?

I'd end up confused, conflicted & frustrated.

You know what wouldn't happen?

I wouldn't find the answer based on my body and my goals.

The only place that answer can from from is me.

The only place your answer can come from is you.

In today's episode, I'm going to help you understand how you can find your answer.

How Much Protein Do You Need?

Understand that there is no magic number or perfect formula that will tell you how much protein you need.

The way to find out if you're eating too much, not enough or the right amount is by listening to your body & monitoring your results.

A great way to tell that you're getting the right amount of protein is when:

  • You're making progress towards your goal (whatever your goal is)
  • You feel well (stable energy, stable mood, few cravings)

In almost all cases, you do not need to supplement to meet your protein needs. You can easily meet and even exceed your protein needs with whole foods.

Individuals will have higher protein needs when they are:

  • overweight
  • high level athletes
  • injured or ill
  • chronically stressed
  • suffering from adrenal fatigue

In general, you want to shoot to include protein at your meals and snacks. If you're consuming a traditional diet of 3 meals and 2 snacks, you want to incorporate a serving of protein with all your meals and at least one of your snacks.

If you're consuming fewer, larger meals, you can lean more towards a couple servings of protein with each meal. Remember, however, that these are guidelines for a starting point. Adjust based on your progress towards your goal and how you feel.

A serving of protein is 3-4 ounces of meat/fish, a couple of eggs or approximately 1 cup of greek yogurt.
