Lyon noted that 0.8 grams is “the minimum to prevent deficiency.” A more appropriate range based on scientific evidence is 1.2 to 1.6 grams of protein per kilogram of your body weight daily.
Here are five protein sources that you can easily add to your diet:
- Lean meats, including turkey
- lean fish
- Cottage cheese
- whey protein
“When we talk about high-quality protein, it’s always animal protein,” Lyon says. He explained that this does not mean that plant proteins are bad. It’s all about the amino acid profile.
