Protein Guidelines

General Dietary Guidelines

The recommended daily requirement of protein, fat, and carbohydrates are set by the various nutrition authorities of each country.

In the United States, the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP)—a subsidiary of the Department of Health and Human Service—issues recommendations every five years, the latest of which are included in the 2015-2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.1

As part of the guidelines, the ODPHP recommends a protein intake of between 10 percent and 35 percent of the total daily calories for women and men over the age of 18.

Despite needing many more calories when training, a bodybuilder’s proteins intake would still fall within this range. A 2017 study published in the Journal of Nutrition endorses protein consumption at the upper end of the scale, a recommendation echoed by many bodybuilding trainers and enthusiasts.2

Calorie Method

Many bodybuilders will use the grams per calorie formula to direct their proteins consumption. While some trainers will calculate based on 35 percent of the total calories, others endorse 30 percent or less based on your current training level.

Given that a 200-pound bodybuilder may need to consume up to 4,000 calories per day, protein would account for 1,200 of those calories (4,000 calories x 30 percent = 1,200 calories).

Since a gram of protein equals 4 calories, that would mean that the 200-pound bodybuilder should consume roughly 300 grams of protein daily (1,200 calories ÷ 4 calories/gram = 300 calories).

  • SLOW-DIGESTING PROTEIN

    Faster digesting protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein products are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Compared to some other proteins, it can take longer for our Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we’ve created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support. 24g of Micellar Casein

  • BEST-IN-CLASS TASTE!

    Enjoying a clean formula doesn’t mean you have to deal with excess carbs and fat. For some companies, the taste of their protein is the only thing they have going for them, so they load up their protein formulas with cheap proteins that are easy to flavor, and then chase that with a load of flavoring in the form of sugar, carbs and fat. At MuscleTech®, we believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice macronutrients for results. That’s why our research team works closely with some of the top protein-flavoring professionals in the world! In fact, we conducted taste tests to help us formulate a best-in-class NITRO-TECH® 100% WHEY GOLD taste profile we know you’ll love.

    The result is a great-tasting formula that doesn’t pack the extra sugar and carbs you’ll see in other protein powders. This gives you more protein per scoop and a better overall macronutrient profile.
