How much protein should a person eat in a normal day?  Men and women both need to eat protein whether they workout or not and here is a quick way to determine the proper amount for each person. Soo lets start with how much protein a man should eat in a day. A man who is basically sedentary, only needs about a three quarters of a gram of protein per pound of body weight. A man who is working out regularly however, needs to eat about a gram of protein per pound of body weight..and a man who is body building will need to eat about two grams of protein per pound of body weight. So a 200 pouind man who is sitting in an office only needs about 150 grams of protein but that same man who is a body builder will need 400 grams of protein.So protein requirements can vary widely depending on activity level. Below is photo of personal trainer for The Woodlands,  Melissa who eats about 110 grams of protein a day.See protein requirements for females below the photo  Also check this youtube video out...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7LpZkq0tQU

How much protein does a woman need to eat in a normal day. A woman who is sedentary needs about a half a gram of protein per pound of body weight. One who is working out regularly needs about three quarters of a gram of protein per pound of body weight, and a bodybuilder needs about a gram of protein per pound of body weight.
So a 150 pound woman needs about  75 grams of protein if she is in an office but if she is working out a lot she will need about 100 grams of protein and if she is a Houston Bodybuilder she may need 150 grams..  It is important to note that protein is necessary for muscle growth and muscle growth is important for a speedier metabolism. But protein should not be eaten exclusively and the body also needs a balance of fruits and vegetables to provide energy for the workouts without adding excess fat to the diet. Nutrition is a very important part of successful training. Consistency is also very important. Keep in mind that too much protein, or more than the body can absorb at one time can stress the body as the kidneys try to flush it out. Your body can only absorb a certain amount of protein at a time. The best times to consume protein are after workouts when the body needs the protein to rebuild the muscles trained.

Remember, Protein is fuel for muscles but only if a person is working out regularly.
How do I workout when I am traveling and do not have access to a gym?
Often personal training clients  need to travel for a week and may or may not have access to a gym. Here are tips on workouts to do when this happens. When traveling a good workout can happen  with a minimum of equipment and Houston Personal trainer Melissa uses different stretch bands as well as a jump rope because they are lightweight for taking in a suit case and because they supply some resistance for muscle development as well as a means for doing cardio in a small space. A great workout can happen even if there is no equipment because the body itself provides weight for resistance in the form of squats, pushups, dips, pullups, and jumping and all of these can be done without a gym.The stretch bands can be used for chest press, squats, bicep curls, triceps press, shoulder press, lat pulls, front raises and lateral raises. Doing two sets of twenty repetitions of each of these will be an adequate traveling workout when combined with fifteen minutes of jumping rope.Below are two photos of part of the workout with stretch bands showing personal trainer Melissa demonstrating how to use the stretch bands for squats.Houston Personal trainer Melissa does not miss her workouts even when she is traveling and fitness is a way of life for her and many others
