Seriously... How Much Protein Is Enough If You Want to Build Muscle?
I've recently started a workout plan, and have given up a lot of processed foods and am eating lots of protein. I've been eating a lot of:
I always read that you should have 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. But then I heard from a dietitian that you need 1 gram per kilogram of bodyweight. She then said that eating too much protein can cause kidney problems.
So what's the best option here? I like my workout (HIIT with strength training) and feel fuller with eating more protein, but now I'm worried about damaging my kidneys.
Thanks in advance
