The accepted level of protein from all sources such as animal proteins, eggs and dairy, etc, is 1.5 grams of protein per Kilogram of body weight per day just to maintain things.
Since 1 kilogram is 2.2 pounds, if you’re the average American weighing in at 150 pounds you’ll need about 105 grams of digestible protein per day.
An ounce of meat has about 7 grams of digestible protein. You’ll get about the same amount out of a whole egg.
For women, who can’t digest protein nearly as well as men, it’s very important to seek out high quality digestible sources of protein.
Your protein needs must be met and between 100-120 grams per day should be your ideal target.
