The Power of Pork Protein

The Institute of Medicine suggests that about 10-35% of your day’s total daily calories should come from protein; and of that protein, they recommend about 20 to 30 grams per meal to help maintain muscle mass and function.

Bonus: eating twice the recommended amount of protein has been linked to beneficial effects on muscle and body composition, leg power, weight loss, weight management, and healthy aging.
