The right amount of protein for any one individual depends on many factors, including their activity level, age, muscle mass, physique goals and current state of health.
Protein needs of active individuals are higher than those of sedentary persons. Intake of 1.2-1.4 grams per kilogram of body weight for endurance athletes (e.g. runners) and 1.2-1.7 grams per kilogram of body weight for power athletes (i.e. weight lifters) has been suggested as an appropriate requirement for active individuals (5). That’s equivalent to approximately 84-119 grams for men and 66-94 grams for women daily.
