How Much Protein Do Women Need?
As a general rule of thumb, women require 0.8 grams of protein per kilo of body weight to maintain healthy function.
If you are training regularly (three times per week for example) it is recommended that your protein intake is increased, with 1g per kilogram being the recommended consensus.
In some rare cases, such as supporting a heavy powerlifting regimen, protein intake of 1.3g and above can be used, however, this is far beyond the 'normal' amount needed for everyday women's fitness and weightlifting programmes.
Still unsure? Take a look at our Beginner Nutrition Guide For Women.
Women's Protein Types
Whey based protein powders contain all the essential amino acids, making it a perfect 'cover all' supplement which will give you piece of mind when your training.
Like Whey, Casein is derived from milk, which means it contains the full mix of essential amino acids women need when weightraining to build muscle.
The key difference with Casein is in it's slower digestion times; making it a perfect 'overnight' supplement, or, taken at breakfast; delivering a steady source of protein all day long.
Vegan protein for women is often made from either Pea or Soy derivatives; delivering essential nutrients for those on a meat-free diet.
What Are The Benefits Of Protein?
Build Muscle Mass
Protein helps build muscle tissue when lifting weights and training, making it a key part of any lean muscle mass programme. One of the key worries women have is getting 'too bulky'; don't panic! This is impossible; no one can 'accidentally' get 'too muscular'!
As protein contributes to muscle tissue repair, protein supplements can help increase your recovery times. Meaning you can go harder, longer and much more frequently.
Protein helps us feel fuller, longer, making it perfect for a balanced diet and weight control. A protein heavy diet is much easier to maintain weight with than a carb of fat heavy diet.
