  • Protein intake for a 17 year old ?

    Hey all.

    I am being primal for about 3 weeks now and I have seen good results.
    Mark says that the protein intake should be about 0.7-1g X leanbodyweight.
    I am 154 pounds at about 10% bodyfat but I assume as a teenager I should eat more protein because I am still in puberty and growing and all that stuff? I eat about 180-200 grams of protein per day or less in some occasions.

    Thanks in advance.

    You're probably getting more than enough. And at 17, you're likely the tail-end of puberty. I was done myself by about 14. Haven't grown an inch since!

      I would say that you could do well to have the normal amounts of protein -- just keep your fat up so the hormones do well.

        120-140 grams of fat daily is ok? (about 55-60% of the caloric intake).

          Numbers seem perfect, as long as you feel good while eating this way. If so, keep up the good work. If not, start tweaking .
