Too Much Protein is Usually Stored As Fat

image

Many nutritionists advise their clients to eat 1.1 g to 1.2 g of protein (animal products) daily for every 2.2 pounds of body weight (65 g to 71 g for a 130-pound woman). The problem is that we have a tendency to eat the majority of our protein at the dinner even though our bodies can only use 15 g to 30 g at a time to build and repair tissue. The rest is burned for energy or, too often, stored as fat. The best trick is to try and spread your protein intake evenly throughout the day: 20 g at each of the three main meals and 6 g to 12 g in each of two snacks.
