Why Should You Attend the Event?

A recently concluded study by IMRB concludes that 8 out of 10 Indians have a diet deficient in Protein. This calls for the need for an expert to take everyone through a proper guide that will enable us to meet our daily protein requirement. The Recommended Dietary Allowance for protein is 0.8 to 1 gm of protein per kg of body weight but if you are into sports, fitness, or active living then you need 1.2 to 2 gm of protein per kg of body weight.

Whether you are an athlete, fitness enthusiast, bodybuilder, or leading an active lifestyle, one who wants to maintain general well-being or looking to build muscle and strength. You may want to ensure post-workout muscle recovery, fulfill daily protein intake while leading a hectic, stressful, and busy lifestyle, or someone who wants to enhance immunity the you need high-quality protein daily. In addition, this expert session will be a perfect guidebook for you to make sure your protein intake is adequate.

Getting 1 to 2 gm of the best protein is not easy but it certainly is not impossible as well and one can achieve it by bringing positive changes to their diet.

Join us for a session and learn more about protein intake for a healthy and active lifestyle.
