Chicken breast protein

Protein is a macro nutrient necessary for the proper growth and function of the human body.

There is considerable debate over the amount of protein a person needs to consume per day, the current recommended daily intake (RDI) for protein is 46 grams for women aged 19-70, and 56 grams for men aged 19-70.

Any excess protein is turned into energy by the body, and it is controversial whether this excess protein causes a strain on the liver.

A deficiency in protein leads to muscle atrophy, and impaired functioning of the human body in general.

High protein foods include meat, fish, cheese, tofu, beans, lentils, yogurt, nuts, and seeds.
