so how much do you need?
UK adults RDI of protein is 0.75g for each kilogram you weigh (roughly translated as 45g for women/60kg and 60g for men/80kg). as you get older you lose muscle mass and strength, so it’s key you hit your RDI targets to manage or prevent this happening. Here’s how…
YOUR PROTEIN POWER HITS 100g greek yoghurt = 5g* 1 egg = 6g 1/2 can tuna = 20g 1 medium chicken breast = 53g 1 medium sirloin steak = 62g
VEGETABLE PROTEIN SOURCES 180g serving quinoa = 8.8g 1/2 pot (150g) houmous = 9.5g 100g lentils = 11g 1/2 can kidney beans = 15.4g 100g sunflower seeds = 19.8g
