Are you getting enough?
Protein is the magic bullet to aging well & helping with weight loss & weight maintenance.
Protein helps to preserve lean muscle & lean muscle is the fountain of youth.
Without lean muscle, you will:
-lose functional strength
-be more prone to injury
-lose your calorie burning ability (because muscle is metabolically active)
So, work to get a minimum of 0.8g of protein per pound of desired body weight.
For example, if your desired body weight is 150lbs, aim for 120g of protein daily.
If you want to remain lean & strong, do yourself a favour & pass the protein please!
