Calculate Your Recomended Protein Intake!

This so called fitness calculator will kill you. 1 gram of protein per kilogram of bodyweight is more than enough for an average man that goes to the gym 3 - 4 times a week. Only elite athletes consume 1.5 grams or more per kg of bodyweight. ELITE! Don't listen to all this marketing BS from supplement companies about how much protein you need. You could be slowly killing your kidneys by taking in too much protein. See a nutritionist if you want some SOLID advice.
