Protein Is Protein, Right? Wrong!

Interesting Fact

The source of your protein will result in differences to how your body utilises it.  Animal based proteins, such as whey protein, will be utilised in muscle growth to a greater degree than plant base proteins, such as soy and hemp proteins.

Check out this summary of the differences.

Also know that a slightly higher protein intake daily will enhance your weight loss and health outcomes.

Usually the recommended dietary intake of protein is stated as being 0.8g/kg of body weight.  For a 60kg person, this will equate to approximately 48g of protein per day.  However, remember that a 290g cooked ribeye steak, contains approx 69g of protein.

New guidelines for weight loss and health are indicating that this should be raised to 1.2 - 1.6g/kg of body weight.
