5 Reasons Why You Might Not Be Getting Enough Protein Per Day
Not sure if you're eating enough protein for optimal energy and performance?
1. You Have a Busy Schedule
Unless you're a food prepper, most of us are too busy with work, family, hobbies, and social life to prepare three protein-rich meals a day.
At the end of a long day, it can be difficult to both shop for and then prepare high protein meals consistently. An extra 20g of premium sourced protein can go a long way in helping to meet daily needs.
2. You're Following a New Diet
If you've switched to a new diet or lifestyle recently, whether it's keto, intermittent fasting, plant-based, or something else, there's an adjustment period in the beginning when you might be more likely to be off-target with your protein requirements.
3. You're Eating Too Many Carbs or Fats
It's easy to overestimate your protein intake and assume that you're eating an adequate amount each day. But if you're just ballparking it and not tracking how much protein you eat, then there's a good chance you're not eating enough, especially if you're trying to increase lean muscle mass.
4. Your Macros are Out of Balance
A well-balanced diet with protein, carbs, and fats works well for most people. But if you're eating too many carbs or fats, then you'll meet your daily calorie needs and satisfy your appetite before you've had a chance to eat enough protein.
5. You Don't Know How Much Protein You Need
You know that you should eat “enough” protein. But how much is enough for you? Protein requirements vary from person to person based on weight, activity levels, body composition goals, and more.
