Health Tip: Fueling Your Body With Protein

Posted August 12, 2017

(HealthDay News) -- Protein helps build necessary muscle and a toned physique, especially if you're an athlete.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these protein pointers:
  • Eat a protein-laden meal within two hours of exercise. If you're an athlete, aim for 1.2 grams to two grams of protein per kilogram of your body
  • weight each day, spaced throughout the day.
  • You probably can get enough protein through food. Supplements and protein powders aren't necessary.
  • Don't forget carbohydrates and beneficial fats.
  • Get enough regular physical activity. Exercise combined with the right diet is what builds strength and muscle tone.
