We all get bombarded with information about protein. Are you eating enough? Too much? The wrong kind of protein? 
It all gets a bit too complicated for most of us for our own fitness jorneys. 
So let's bring it back to basics. 
WHY DO WE NEED PROTEIN? 
When we exercise, our muscles break down, and are repaired and made stronger through protein synthesis (in combination with getting enough rest to recover)

HOW MUCH PROTEIN? 
There is no concrete answer to this. The daily recommended allowance of protein is 0.8g per kg of bodyweight. 
However that does not account for training and exercise. We need more when we are actively breaking down and repairing our muscles. 
For this reason we should aim for between 1.4g - 2g per kg of bodyweight to build muscle efficiently. 
DOES IT MATTER WHEN I GET MY PROTEIN? 
There is some evidence to suggest that the timing of protein intake may be beneficial.

However generally speaking it is better to just make sure that you are getting the right amount of protein over the course of a day so as to keep building that muscle!
