3. The body can store proteins for later use.
If our body could store proteins the same way it stores excess sugars and carbohydrates, there would be no need to include a mandatory portion of proteins in our daily diet. It would even be possible to do away with protein shakes, whey, meats, fish, pulses from our diet for entire spans. But unfortunately that isn’t the case. We require a steady source of protein for good muscle health and since proteins take time to digest and be of benefit to us, it is best to include protein as part of our diet every day. And since not all proteins are similar, it is a good idea to tap into different sources of protein rather than resorting to the same kind every time.
4. The body can only bear 30 grams of proteins per meal.
Think of where we would be evolution-wise if the above statement was true. Our muscles wouldn’t be quite as developed and we wouldn’t be as good athletes, dancers, weightlifters, reporters, swimmers, even thinkers. Even though protein requirements depend on age, gender, metabolism rate and activity levels, in general the average male and female daily protein requirement levels are far greater than would be met if the body capacity would be of only 30 grams with each meal. Clearly, this is not true.
5. Men require more protein than women.
So far we’ve dealt with ideas that were myths. This bearing no resemblance in that sense to the rest is a fact. A fact based on reasoning, logic. The male body is in general heavier, larger, having countable more number of muscles than the female system. It is obvious that maintenance of the greater number of muscles will require more proteins. It is no surprise then, that men require more units of protein daily than females.
