Therapist Lyudmila Frolova: the daily protein requirement for an adult contains 300 grams of chicken breast.

Doctor Frolova stated that for To maintain good immunity, good health and muscle mass, it is important to eat enough protein. The specialist clarified how much protein the body of men and women should receive daily.

“For women with normal weight, this is approximately 48-56 grams per day, and for men – 64-72 grams. You can get this amount of protein by eating about 300 grams of chicken breast, which is about 60 g of protein,” the doctor shared with Gazeta.Ru.
Lyudmila Frolova noted that on average, adults without diseases should consume protein daily, based on the calculation of 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight. Those who lead an active lifestyle and play sports, as well as pregnant and lactating women, physiologically need more protein. Also, the need for it may increase in old age, when muscle breakdown occurs.

Doctor Frolova drew attention to the fact that the diet should contain as many different healthy and beneficial sources of protein as possible. The doctor advised to eat protein foods correctly and combine them correctly with other food components.

“Avoid combining protein foods with heavy carbohydrates, such as potatoes. Don’t forget to drink enough water – this promotes better digestion and absorption of proteins,” the specialist warned.
The expert named eating meat in combination with green and low-starchy vegetables as one of the best ways to get protein.
