Protein can be called the building block of our bones, muscles, skin, blood and even our nails and hair. For an adult, 50 rams of protein (10% of total calories) is required every day. For a muscle builder, it is around 120-150 grams according to his weight, and for weight loss, it is 30% of the daily caloric value.
Our body does not store protein, which means that it needs protein almost daily to work efficiently. Sometimes it can be a challenge to work protein in consistently throughout the day.
