What happens if you don't get enough protein?
I've been tracking in my fitness pal. I just looked and every day I'm below 100g of protein. If my lean body mass is about 100lbs, then I'm not getting enough. By below, I mean always below. Like here is the last week:
43g (IF day), 81g, 77g, 39g (missed dinner), 68g, 66g, 83g.
I may not be entering correctly since I have to guesstimate so often, but if these figures are correct, I'm not getting enough. What happens generally if you don't get enough protein? Could this explain why I can't seem to lose any weight? Or why it's so easy to feel hungry?
