Remember that not all proteins are created equal. For example, vegetable based proteins are known as incomplete proteins as they dont contain all of the amino acids, animal based proteins are known as complete proteins as they contain all of the amino acids. What you absorb is also very important, a chicken breast or piece of steak is 35% bio available, an egg is 65% bio available and whey protein is 90-95% bio available, which makes it the most superior form for our bodies.
Isagenix uses 'Happy cows' which means they have been pasture fed on natural diets with no chemicals used on the grass, there's no hormones, streriods or antibiotics used on them and they are only milked when in season. The milk is then cross membraned, cold extracted which ensures that the vital nutrients are not destroyed, as can happen with isolated protein products.
Below is a good guideline. Remember the threshold of protein per meal or in one sitting is 35-40 grams. Anything beyond that is a waste. The key is to trickle protein into your body throughout the day. The body will break it down and use it throughout the day.
Once you find out what your goal grams of protein per day are, then factor in your IsaLean or IsaLean Pro shakes, then design your prepared meals with protein, like turkey, chicken, fish or bison, around the remaining protein requirements.
Person, Situation & Goals
1 Kilo = 2.2 pounds
Average healthy sedentary adult (male or female) that does NOT work out or have any related goals. This is just what I consider to be a good minimum daily protein intake for general health/function- 0.5-0.7 grams of protein per kilo of body weight.
Average healthy adult (male or female) that IS doing some form of exercise regularly or IS trying to improve their body (lose fat, build muscle, etc.). This is the minimum I’d recommend in this case- 0.8-1 grams of protein per kilo of body weight.
Average healthy adult FEMALE whose primary goal is building muscle, getting “toned,” maintaining muscle while losing fat, increasing strength or improving performance- 1-1.2 grams of protein per kilo of body weight.
Average healthy adult MALE whose primary goal is building muscle, getting “toned,” maintaining muscle while losing fat, increasing strength or improving performance- 1-1.7 grams of protein per kilo of body weight.
EXAMPLE--- For 1.7 grams of protein per kilo-
You take your weight, divide it by 2.2, then times that by 1.7= grams of protein per day-
200 lbs divided by 2.2 = 90.9 then times that by 1.7 = 154 grams of protein per day
