Too Much Protein is Usually Stored in Fat

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 consume the majority of our protein at dinner while our body 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 spread your protein intake throughout the day: for example, 20 g at meals and 6 g to 12 g in two snacks.
