How To Build A Human

  • 1.3 g of protein per kg of body weight with moderate activity levels
  • 1.6 g of protein per kg of body weight with intense activity levels
  • Elite athletes can push this up to 2g per kg of body weight with the very upper ceiling of tolerance being around 3.5g
  • Eat, don’t drink your protein (unless it’s a protein shake post-weights workout)
  • Make sure your protein sources are lean and healthy (sorry grandma)
  • Don’t take more than 50g of protein at any one time
  • Use the recommended daily amounts to maintain sufficient protein intake based on your current weight and age; increase it to no more than 2g per kg of body weight to gain muscle (with the support of a weight lifting program of course)
