How Much Protein Do We Need?

There are certain periods in a woman’s life when there is an increased need for protein. For example, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, women typically need between 70-80g of protein per day, which, on average, is an additional 25g of protein per day.

Similarly, protein is extremely important as women age. Women in the menopause see a decrease in muscle mass. Extra protein in their diets can help to avoid this. Women aged 18-50 require 0.6g protein per kg of body weight each day.

Women over 50 need to increase this to 0.8g per kg of body weight. Younger women who work out may also need additional protein in their diets, depending on how much exercise they do on a regular basis.
