How Much Protein Do You Need?

Remember elementary school when the teacher talked about how everyone is different (hair color, eye color, gender…), and without our differences the world would be a very boring place? Well, the same can be said about BiPro and the amount you need to consume to get the right amount of protein for your body! Since everyone is different, there’s no “one size fits all” approach to getting the protein you need. Check out this handy guide to determine the correct amount of whey protein for you!

Adult competitive athletes need 0.6 to 0.9 grams of protein per pound of body weight. That means an active 200-pound baseball player requires 120 to 180 grams of protein a day.

What about a growing teenage athlete, say the star quarterback on the high school football team? That 150-pound student could use 120 to 135 grams of protein every day, considering he’ll need 0.8 to 0.9 grams of protein for each of his 150 pounds.

What about women? How much protein to we need, ladies? Well, if you work out on a daily basis, but aren’t training to compete in a pro sport, you’ll need 0.5 to 0.75 grams of protein for each pound. So, if you weight 125 pounds, that’s 62.5 to 93.75 grams of protein each day.

We know what you’re thinking… What about me?! How can I remember this and get an accurate count for my weight? No worries – we have the answer! Try our Protein Calculator on our website! It’s super helpful and you can plug in your personal numbers to determine the right amount of BiPro whey protein for you.

Now remember, one scoop of BiPro (22 grams) provides 20 grams of protein, so just a few scoops everyday will provide you with the recommended daily allowance of protein and leave you feeling healthy and satisfied!!
