Have you ever noticed that there is a LOT of different information on the web about how much protein you should be eating? Many of us find this pretty confusing.
Truth is, there is no ‘golden number’ that applies to everybody. The amount of protein you need per day depends on your personal goals, body size, activity levels… you get the idea.
