How Much Dietary Protein Will Prevent Muscle Loss

author avatar Dr. Eric Berg 08/31/2023

Preventing muscle loss requires an adequate intake of dietary protein. Consuming around 1.2 to 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight daily can help maintain muscle mass and support muscle recovery after exercise.

Protein-rich foods like lean meats, fish, eggs, and legumes are excellent sources. Timing protein intake strategically, especially around workout periods, can enhance its muscle-preserving effects. To ensure the right protein intake for your body, consult with a registered dietitian and consider knowing your body type for personalized dietary decisions and a healthy lifestyle.
