How much does protein help?

Everyone is always talking about protein, protein, protein. I try to take in 75-95g a day. Is that enough? I'm not trying to bulk up - just tone up. Should I add in a protein shake or no? How much difference would an extra 20-30g of protein a day make?

If you eat right you really should not need a protein supplement. To much protein is hard on your kindeys and can cause kidney stones.

A protein shake a before or after a workout could help you with the recovery process at night. Although if you're toning up then you shouldn't be doing alot of weight. You want low weight with lots of reps.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Save your money Stephanie. There is a big difference in the dietary needs of a 200lb+ male that is lifting heavy and looking to grow, as complared to a female that is looking to tone up and target fat loss.
