Protein is an important nutrient, but as with anything you put in your body there is a balance. You do not want to be deficient, but neither do you want too much.
If you are consuming high-quality, protein-rich foods throughout your day, then one serving of Gainful protein powder should be sufficient. Consuming too much protein can lead to a calorie surplus, which will result in weight gain.
Additionally, too much protein without adequate water intake can be problematic for your kidneys. Eating lots of high protein foods and also consuming multiple servings of protein powder a day is not recommended. To figure out exactly how much protein you should be having per day, get in touch with your Registered Dietitian by logging into Gainful.com and heading over to the "My Dietitian" tab.
For some, however, protein deficiency is a real concern. It can be difficult to get all the protein your body needs, especially if you follow a specific diet plan. This is where nutrient-dense protein powder can really come in handy!
