Question: What is your daily protein intake?

According to the Dietary Reference Intake report for macronutrients, a sedentary adult should consume 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, or 0.36 grams per pound. That means that the average sedentary man should eat about 56 grams of protein per day, and the average woman should eat about 46 grams.

How much protein should I eat in a day?

How much protein do I need? Anywhere from 10 to 35 percent of your calories should come from protein. So, if your needs are 2,000 calories, thats 200-700 calories from protein (50-175 grams). The recommended dietary allowance to prevent deficiency for an average sedentary adult is 0.8 g per kg of body weight.
