I am a 57 year old woman, working out five days a week, twice a week with weight training, twice a week with cardio, three times a week with Pilates and once a week spinning. How much protein should I be consuming on a daily basis?
At the level that you are exercising, you can use the following as a general guideline:
100 – 150grams of protein per day, broken up into (3) 25-30 grams per day meals & (2) 10-15 gram per day snacks.
Keep up the great work!
I have been using the OptiPro M and adding the CLA for 6 weeks now. Last week I noticed that every time I made a shake (with either frozen berries or coffee) I ended up with gas pains, gas, stomach cramping and irritable bowels. Is this common? I have 2 containers left and hate to stop using it but I’m not sure it’s worth being ill for several hours. What do you suggest?
