Adjustment of protein requirement

I am a 73 year old female and having done your Protein Requirement Worksheet I require 80 grams of protein per day. Do I need to adjust that number because of age? Would I require less protein per day?

    Hi Catherine

    • How tall are you - how much would you like to weigh and what is your frame size (small, medium, large)?

    Catherine, somewhere around 50g - 55g of protein daily. This is a ball park suggestion to get you started.
