How much protein you ask? Depending on how active you are thru the day is a determining factor. Fitness enthusiasts and bodybuilders are encouraged to consume about 1-1.5 grams per pound of body weight. Others should be targeting at least, 50 grams per day of protein. Recommendations for weight loss, is to consume 30 percent protein (600 calories), 30 percent carbohydrates (600 calories), and 40 percent fat (800 calories). Do not snack and do not eat after dinner at night. Eat either two or three meals a day. Keep carbohydrates low and definitely watch your carbohydrate intake for dinner. Bon Appetit
