Age– Extra protein is required in growing infants and children
Sport– For endurance athletes and those doing strength training you may considfer a higher intake of protein at a rate of 1.2-2.0 g per kg of body weight
Diet – Depending on the diet you are following you may be more or less likely to be hitting the protein recommendations. Currently the vegan diet is very popular, and this does provide many benefits in terms of the general higher intake of plants, and therefore nutrients that they provide. However it is important to be mindful that many vegan protein sources do not contain all the 9 essential amino acids, and that you may need to mix sources together to gain a full profile.
Medication– With some medication the intake of protein can impact on the absorption and it may be that you need plan timings. This is something that you should consult with your HCP.
Timing– It is advised that you consume 15-20g of protein 30minutes- 2 hours post training. High fat consumption with this may slow down the digestion, so go for protein and carbs.
Other considerations– Extra protein is recommended in pregnant and breast feeding women.
