If you read our feature recently, Not All Amino Acids Are Creates Equal, then you’ll know there’s a major problem facing American men and that problem is protein deficiency. It turns out the recommendations of how much protein men should be eating is way off; every man needs a different amount of protein to maintain their physical health. This amount is based on your weight. If you are reasonably active and are an average man you need to be consuming almost double the current recommendations.
If you work out intensely then you could need up to four times as much protein as your RDA. That’s before you factor in that already men struggle to meet their recommended daily allowance (RDA). If you don’t get adequate amounts of protein you are susceptible to a host of health problems including muscle deterioration, diabetes, muscle or joint pain, and low energy and testosterone. So obviously this is a tremendous problem for men.
Symptoms of protein deficiency include:
- Blood sugar instability
- Craving carbs
- Sweet tooth
