Consuming protein allows us to rebuild our muscles after we exercise. Most women do not get enough protein in their diets. Refer to this simple formula and talk to your doctor about your protein intake:
.8 grams of protein for every kilogram of what you weigh or .36 grams of protein per pound of weight. Example: Linda weighs 150 lbs which is 68 kg then Linda would need 54 grams of protein per day.
To add more protein to your diet try these protein balls. These protein balls also have flax seed (great fiber) as well. They are delicious and easy to make:
1 cup of peanut butter (natural if you can)
1/4 cup of honey
1 /4 cup if protein powder
3 tbsp grounded flaxseed
4 tbs of dark chocolate chips
Mix all these ingredients and refrigerate for an hour before trying.
