Protein-packed foods improve our metabolism

How much protein do you need? New research suggests that many of us may need more protein than we realize. The current RDA is 0.8 gram of protein per kilogram of body weight, but several studies have found that 1 to 1.2 grams may be more protective against age-related muscle loss.

Do you know how many protein you should eat daily to offset muscle loss—and protect your metabolism—while you lose weight?
And do you know what foods are metabolism-boosting, protein-packed?

You can find the answers by reading this article: http://www.active.com/nutrition/articles/18-protein-packed-foods-that-improve-metabolism.

Greetings! I do not know the answer, but I am also interested in this topic. I am currently on a keto diet, and have seriously limited carbs intake. That is why I am eating more protein-rich food. I would also like to know how much protein per day do I really need. For now, I have been using this keto calculator to keep track on my calories intake. Is there a better way?
