Are you getting enough protein?

How do you know?  

  • Do you feel hungry (read=HANGRY) at points during the day? 
  • Are you hungry within 2 hours of eating a meal?
  • Do you experience a low blood sugar/shaky feeling during your day?

If yes to any of these, you are probably not eating enough protein.  Protein makes you feel satiated, full.  The average sedentary man needs about 56 grams of protein in a day, and the average, sedentary woman needs about 46 grams per day.  To calculate your exact amount:

your body weight X .36/grams

And up it slightly if you have a really active day or job.  The average piece of chicken is about 21 grams of protein.  How are you doing?
