How Much Protein Should I Eat To Lose Fat?
How much protein should I eat to lose fat? The amount of protein you need each day to maximize fat loss and minimize lean muscle mass loss, depends on your body composition and level of physical activity. For athletes and people who are already relatively lean, consuming 2.3–3.1 g/kg or 1.00–1.41 g/lb of protein each day can help minimize muscle loss and maximize fat loss. Overweight or obese people should aim for 1.2–1.5 g/kg or 0.54–0.68 g/lb of protein each day. References
