  • How much protein do you need? For this answer, you should look at the following equation: Your weight in pounds, divided by 2.2. Then multiply that by 0.8. For example for me, who weighs 155, divided by 2.2 = 70.4. Multiply that by 0.8 and I get 56. So 56 grams of protein per day is more than enough for me. For kids, the multiplication can vary and instead of 2.2, you would want to use a 1.1 multiplier.
