Protein requirements are still debated among experts. The World Health Organization set the protein requirement for the average healthy adult to 8grams/kilogram.
It is well known to many who try to build muscle that they need protein to do it.
“You have to eat less carbs to lose weight, right?”, “I eat more protein so I can gain more muscle”, “Don’t almonds have a lot of fat? I can’t eat too much fat if I want to lose weight”. These are common questions and statements within the health conscious community today.
