Dr Oz: How Much Protein Do You Need?
Protein seems to be just about everywhere and lately it’s been added to everything from snacks and bread to water. But how much protein do you really need? Dr Oz found a way to reveal your personal protein number, as well as what types of protein you should be eating for weight loss.
First, he spoke to members of the audience to find how what they thought a daily dose of protein looked like. One woman admitted she thought a plate full of various protein-rich foods seemed accurate, while the woman next to her thought a small bowl of yogurt, one hard-boiled egg, and some nuts were enough. It turns out they’re both the right amount because the plate full of protein is perfect for a 300 pound body builder. On the other hand, the smaller portion was perfect for a 25-pound baby.
