Protein g/kg bodyweight

Hey all, looking to bulk up slightly after a long period of cardio. Wondering how much grams of protein / kg of bodyweight I should take.

I eat mostly vegs with 2 eggs per day, any advice on how much grams of protein powder I should supplement with?

You can start by knowing your TDEE first.
https://damnripped.com/tdee-calculator/

From there you can try adjusting your protein intake, to see how it affects your weight gain.

This video might help you judge how much protein you need to consume.


Use both information from the video, and TDEE calculator to help you with your weight gain journey.

All the best.

2.2g/kg lean muscle. means if you weigh 60kg with 20% body fat, 106g protein per day. 2 eggs are like 12g protein

dont rely on protein powder. eat real foods instead.

Hi! Do you consume other protein throughout the day as well? To gain weight you will need to look at your overall caloric intake and expenditure. If your intake>expenditure, you will gain weight and vice versa. If you don't eat much meat, you can go for tofus and nuts for protein as well. There is a recommendation below but you can experiment by keeping a food log as there are variations between individuals. You can then supplement with protein powder to hit your daily intake.
