This Is What It Looks Like To Eat 75 Grams Of Protein In A Day
The formula for daily protein requirements that we’re currently working with is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. This means that an adult weighing 150 pounds = 68kg x 0.8 would require about 55 grams of protein a day.
However, recent research suggests that a more realistic estimate of our daily protein needs would somewhere between 0.93 and 1.2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. Using this formula, a 150 pound adult would need between 64 and 80 grams of protein per day.
If you like to keep the math easy, you can just divide your body weight (in pounds) in half to get a ballpark number that’s in the correct range. For today’s purposes we’re going work with a 150 pound person who would therefore need about 75 grams of protein.
