Do You Know How Much Does Your Body Need Protein Daily?

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Do You Know How Much Does Your Body Need Protein Daily?

There is a popular notion that only people who are gymming or are into body building need to consume a protein-rich diet. What we don’t know is that it is a necessity for all of us Indians as our diets don’t have enough protein content.

While they are rich in fats and carbohydrates, the food that we take is protein deficient.

And the major worry is that we even don’t know how much protein does our body needs for it to function properly. We are clueless about it. That awareness is important to make up for all the protein deficiency that our food isn’t able to fill up for.

How much daily protein do we need?

Ideally, healthy adults need approximately 0.8g per kg body weight/day of protein. Protein needs also vary based on the activity level.

People with sedentary lifestyle: Such people spend most of the day sitting. They either have desk jobs or are mostly stuck to TV, with minimal physical activity or performing only light household chores. People in this bracket need 1g of protein per kg body weight per day.

People with moderate lifestyle: Such people spend a good part of the day on their feet. They are engaged in activities of daily living (e.g. shopping, cleaning, etc.) or walking occasionally. These kind of people need 1.3g per kg body weight per day.

People with active lifestyle: Such people have physically demanding job like they they engage in sports or go to the gym or jog etc. Their protein requirement is 1.6g per kg weight per day.

How protein deficiency affects our health?

  1. Reduces body stamina: Protein deficiency can make you feel lethargic, fatigued and tired.

  2. Lack of concentration: You tend to feel stressed, and experience mental fatigue.

  3. Impaired immunity: You experience frequent bout of illness and slower recovery.

How to make up for protein deficiency?

A simple way is to consume a protein-rich diet. However, following such a strict diet is difficult and needs effort. So the other easier way is to include Protein Nutrition Drink in our daily routine to make up for lacking daily protein intake that isn’t fulfilled by our food. There are products available in the market like Nestle’s High Resource Protein that you can bank upon. High Resource Protein takes care of 37% of RDA (recommended daily intake/allowance) of protein. It has negligible sugar content (0.1%) as compared to other supplements in the market (15%-30% sugar). Available in tasty Vanilla flavor, its major source of energy is whey protein (78%).

So, make sure you consume the right amount of protein to stay healthy and fit.

Whey Protein: Why It Is Best For You?

Consuming right amount of protein daily is essential for staying healthy. The daily protein consumption requirement in a healthy adult is 1g/kg body weight. And this isn’t fulfilled by our diet.

Reason is that our Indian Diet is rich in carbohydrates and fats but falls short on proteins. Making up for this deficiency is very important as otherwise it could lead to major health problems we never even think of.

It has negligible sugar content (0.1%) as compared to other supplements in the market (15%-30% sugar). Available in tasty Vanilla flavor, its major source of energy is whey protein (78%).

Why whey protein is the best for you?

Whey protein, which is a liquid that separates from milk during cheese production, is considered the best source of protein. It is a complete, high quality protein.

  1. Easy digestibility: It is easy to digest and help greater muscle growth and strength. Whey protein has high protein efficacy ratio, which makes it easy digestible. Its protein efficacy ratio is 3.2 compared to Soy protein (2.2) and Casein protein (2.5).

  2. Protein utilization: Its biological value is 104, meaning by it ensures maximal protein utilization in the body with no wastage. Soy and Casein protein has biological values of 94 and 77, respectively.

  3. Amino acids: It contains all of the essential amino acids, which are important to build and repair muscles and tissues.

  4. Natural taste: Whey protein has a very natural taste.

How protein consumption improves your health?

Consuming adequate amount of protein is beneficial for your health in the following ways:

  • It helps boost muscle mass.

  • Help manage strong bones.

  • It helps manage your weight by filling you up.

  • It promotes healthy brain function and learning.

Drug Use In Teens - A Significant Risk Factor for HIV in Adults!

Drug Use In Teens - A Significant Risk Factor for HIV in Adults!

Adolescents exposed to drug use, mental distress and violence may engage in unsafe sexual activities that increase their chance of developing HIV infection in adulthood, according to a recent study by ‘University of Michigan’.

David Cordova, lead author of the study said, "our findings support the notion that the increasing frequency of psychosocial risk factors experienced during adolescence may have effects on HIV risk behaviors decades later".

The Stats-

  • In 2015, 8,807 youth were diagnosed with HIV in the United States - 80% of those diagnoses occurred in individuals aged 20 to 24.
  • Among youth diagnosed with HIV in 2015, 81% were gay or bisexual males. 
  • In 2015, 1,489 youth were diagnosed with AIDS, representing 8% of total AIDS diagnoses that year.

Tips to Help Prevent Substance Abuse-
While it is practically hopeless to prevent anyone from using drugs, there are things we can all do to avoid drug addiction.

  1. Effectively deal with peer pressure. 
  2. Deal with life pressure
  3. Examine the risk factors.
  4. Seek help for mental illness. 
  5. Keep a well-balanced life.

Are You Protein Deficient? Probably, Yes!

Are You Protein Deficient? Probably, Yes!

Indians are Vitamin D deficient, and it is a fact. But what yet remains ignored is the fact that Indians are Protein deficient too. As per a recent study, around 73% of the Indian diets lack protein and the troubling part is that 93% Indians are unaware of their ideal protein requirements. And we do not pay much heed to it!

This ignorance can be risky to our health as protein deficiency can lead to major health concerns.

How protein deficiency affects our health?

a) Reduces body stamina: Protein deficiency can make you feel lethargic, fatigued and tired.

b) Lack of concentration: You tend to feel stressed, and experience mental fatigue.

c) Impaired immunity: You experience frequent bout of illness and slower recovery.

Why are Indians protein deficient?

The reason is our diet, which are more of carbohydrates and fat but are short on proteins.

The Popular Protein Myth

It is usually believed that Protein intake is only necessary for those who are into body building or gymming. But this is a highly mistaken belief. As Indian diets are protein deficient, every healthy individual in India needs to supplement their diets with extra protein component.

How to make up for protein deficiency?

A simple way is to consume a protein-rich diet. However, following such a strict diet is difficult and needs effort. So the other easier way is to include Protein Nutrition Drink in our daily routine to make up for lacking daily protein intake that isn’t fulfilled by our food. There are products available in the market like Nestle’s Resource High Protein that you can bank upon. Resource High Protein takes care of 37% of RDA (recommended daily intake/allowance) of protein.

So, make sure to consume right amount of protein to stay healthy and fit.

Type 2 Diabetes Is Reversible - Found A New Study!

A recent study by UK scientists found that Type 2 diabetes can be completely reversed if you lose weight radically. The results published in the international journal, ‘The Lancet’ showed that 86% of participants who achieved a weight loss of at least 15 kg were able to overcome the disease completely while 73% of those with a weight loss of 10kg or more showed similar results.

Previously considered a disease of the rich, diabetes has spread rapidly among the rural poor as well- thanks to unhealthy diet and no physical activity.

Sometimes, No Advanced Technology is Required For Treatment!
There is nothing that you can’t eat, just limit certain foods. You should:

  • Eat a variety of foods including vegetables, fruit, sometimes some starchy foods like pasta
  • Keep your intake of fat, sugar and salt minimum
  • Have your breakfast, lunch and dinner every day - don’t skip meals
