Protein Myths and Reality NEW

There are lots of misconceptions out there about the body’s protein needs. We hope this tip provides some clarity on the issue.

-Protein doesn’t build muscle–exercise does! True, protein plays a key role in helping the muscles repair and rebuild once a workout has taken place. But you won’t gain any muscle mass simply by eating protein. You’ve got to strength train on a regular basis.

– Most of us don’t need to eat extra protein if we start exercising more. For most people who work out, 0.5 to 0.75 grams of protein per pound of body weight is plenty (e.g., 75 to 115 grams for a 150-pound person). Most of us get more than our required amount without even trying. And high-performance athletes, such as bobybuilders, who do have higher protein needs (0.6 to 0.9 grams per pound), usually get ample amounts because they’re eating higher quantities of food anyway.

– Although you don’t need large amounts of protein, you should eat it frequently throughout the day. Protein should be part of almost every meal and snack. (One key exception: anything eaten within an hour before exercise should have just carbohydrates and no protein.).
