How much protein should you consume per day?

Do you know how many grams of protein you are supposed to consume daily? 

Here's a bit of info on that subject that I read the other day on a newsletter from Coach Matt from WOD Nation.

Basically you need .8 grams per kg of body weight.
1 lb = 0.453 kg
So say you weigh 135 lbs multiply by 0.453kg is roughly 61 kg
61 kg multiplied by .8 g is roughly 48 grams of protein.

I hope this helps.

Have a happy and healthy crunchy green day :-)
