Why we need protein
We have all been told that protein is an important part of our diet, especially if you’re working out a lot. Protein is used to help repair the muscles after a workout and an adult should be consuming anythingbetween 0.8-1.5 grams of protein per 1kg of their bodyweight. In order to get protein into your diet, you need to incorporate it into a lot of your meals, which isn’t as hard as you think. Our Dubai personal trainers encourage their clients to have a high protein intake.
