Protein sources

How much protein should you eat?

Is there a golden rule to how much protein you should be eating? Does the time of day matter? The spacings between meals? Or the amount consumed per meal? Does our training impact our protein demands?

Luckily, we've done the research so you don't have to! Let's digest the basics. 

Proteins are the building blocks of our muscles, our bones, our skin, even hair and nails. Protein plays an integral role in building lean muscle mass, developing strength & power and is directly responsible for recovery by repairing damaged muscle tissue. Protein also has a positive impact on body composition by boosting metabolism.

As a rule of thumb, protein intake should range from 1.5 - 2.0g per kg of bodyweight. For a 75kg person this equates to 112-150g per day, best consumed in 30 - 40g serves. As we typically eat 3 times per day, it is very easy to become deficient in this macronutrient.

Our plant protein blends contain 24g of protein per serve. Supplementing protein powder with a healthy diet is the ideal way to ensure you are giving your body every opportunity to recover and perform at its best!
