How to Get Enough Protein

Diet gurus love to debate how much protein we should eat. Depending on who you ask, I should consume as little as 50 grams or as much as 150 grams of protein per day.

I am going to show you how to hit your protein target, whatever that may be. Simply follow these three steps:

  1. Set your protein target
  2. Group foods based on protein content
  3. Balance your protein groups

The secret sauce in my recipe is the metric — I use percentage of calories from protein, rather than grams, to track protein intake.

A small investment in seeing how your food choices measure up with this metric will be rewarded with near-effortless success in meeting your protein target.

  1. I’ve spend a few days in mourning after you pointing out how poorly peanut butter fares in the protein department. So depressing for a breakfast peanut butter fan. Sigh.

    1. You’re not the only one 🙂 Look on the bright side – it’s still in the target zone for most people. Also, 100% whole grain bread is just as good if not better!
