With nutrition accounting for around 80% of your results, it’s probably a good idea to understand the ins and outs of a healthy, sustainable diet that is appropriate for you and your goals. And one of the most important (and a lot of the time confusing) pieces to the puzzle is protein. How much protein should you actually be eating? What sources of protein should you be including in your diet?
