How Much Protein Do You REALLY Need? Ask the Registered Dietician

How Much Protein Do You Really Need?

No matter what your goal is, everyone needs an adequate amount of protein. Unfortunately, knowing how MUCH protein you need per day can be a confusing topic, and the information available is often conflicting. Jordan Gross is a registered dietician (RD) who has a special interest in doing work with protein and metabolism. He helps people lose weight, gain muscle, and get healthier across the lifespan. Whether your goal is to reverse diet, prep for a bodybuilding show, or improve your blood sugar levels, Jordan emphasizes protein as a key player to success with these goals, so it is important to know how much you really need.

Printable Healthy Grocery List: THE “PICK 2 METHOD”

Healthy Grocery List

Use our healthy grocery list as a printable template, picking 1 or 2 items from each  category. If you are meal prepping for the week, you should think of your food in terms of macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, and fats) to guide you with your food selections. You should have a protein source with each meal. The amounts of fat and carbohydrates will vary, but should be fresh whenever possible. With this in mind, simply picking 2 (or more, if you’re an overachiever) items from each category, figuring out what to put in your meal prep containers becomes incredibly simple, though the possible varieties are limitless. Using this healthy grocery list keeps meal prep simple.
