More specifically, you want help with How Much PROTEIN Do We Really Need? MUST WATCH!?
hey guys dr. Berg here in this video I’m going to share with you how much protein we really need okay so if you look this up you know they will say that you need point eight grams of protein times your body weight per day okay honestly I think that’s way way too much now even say if you’re an athlete you would need one or one and a half times your body weight in the amount of protein that can go with like 300 grams of protein per day so here’s the problem I’m seeing in a clinical practice every day for the last 26 years okay people are doing way too much protein they don’t need as much as they think so I think you would need half of the rec requirements okay so I weigh about 193 so I should have about 0.4 times my body weight so I need about 78 grams of protein per day now what does that mean 78 grams it’s about 26 grams per meal all right and I think the average person needs between like 25 and 35 grams of protein because anything more than that tends to turn into sugar now that’s a generality but it’s it tends to be true so when it turns into sugar it spikes insulin okay so so 26 grams per meal which would be about like 5 ounces so if I was having a piece of like a burger patty it’d be like a deck of a car cards okay or like it’d be 4 eggs and that’s what I have for breakfast or not quite a full chicken breast but maybe 3/4 of a chicken breast so it’s not that much protein when I consume too much protein I find my sleeping isn’t quite right protein has a lot of phosphorus phosphorus is a stimulant so if you’re doing all this protein protein snacks all day you’re not going to sleep that well you need some a lot more vegetables to wine you down with all the the minerals that calm your body so phosphorus is like an accelerator other minerals like calcium magnesium from the vegetables tend to calm you down so I like a good amount of this and just a little bit of protein seems to work really good but you don’t need as much protein as you think there are variables so there’s exceptions to the rule so here’s the variables everyone if you’re younger you can tolerate more protein if you’re older you can’t the liver actually is the organ that helps break down protein so if you have a bad liver a fatty liver because you have a gut you’re not going to digest a lot of protein so just a little bit also the strength of your digestive acids most people have low acids in their stomach and then they have heartburn so if they would have apple cider vinegar they could start to increase the acid and digest more protein people that get gas especially on the protein what that means is they don’t have enough stomach acids so the lower the acid the less you can digest protein okay exercise now if you’re exercising and you’re breaking down proteins muscle you’re going to need a little more protein all right that’s just the fact so if you’re sedentary you’re not going to eat as much protein it’s very very simple the more stressed you are the more protein you will need but typically the average person even if they work out they don’t need a lot of protein so but this is something that is kind of some of you have to test out with your body and play around with the numbers to get your exact amount so you might want to start with 0.4 grams times your body weight and then play around and see how you feel okay see if you recover see if you feel good see if you sleep see if you’re not bloated after you eat and then maybe you increase it you know because some people need a little bit more some people need a little less okay now the other thing is that too much protein raises a hormone called insulin and that keeps you fat so you can actually get fat by too much protein especially if it’s lean protein they found that whey protein because it’s really lean low-fat or other types of lean protein spike insulin more than fatty protein like things like even bacon or sausage things like that so that has a neutral effect on insulin so when you consume protein don’t try to go for the lean get the full fat in there as well so when I eat chicken I have the skin on it when I have beef I have all the fat I don’t get it lean I just don’t because it’s going to spike insulin a little bit more than you would think okay then also if you add sugar to the protein like I was this weekend I was an in town Pennsylvania at this market I was just observing people eat massive amounts of protein with massive amounts of sugar and they have the sugar and the cake and the sweet and this and that what they’re doing is they’re spiking insulin when you add sugar to protein you greatly aggravate and exaggerate the insulin spike so that’s like a deadly combination you don’t want to add the bun to the meat or the ketchup or the sugar to meat especially like the even the barbecued ribs there’s ways you can make it without sugar but those are just some interesting points about protein in how that will mess up your your weight as well okay so I hope that helped and go ahead and write your comments below I will see you in the next video

Dr. Berg talks about how much protein we really need. Normally most people are told they need .8g of protein times your body weight per day. This is way too much I recommend consuming half of that – .4 grams times your body weight. If you can’t digest protein, then add an acidifier to help the breakdown.
