White meat such as chicken, egg white, skimmed milk are product with a high protein level. In our daily diet we need about 80 grams of protein every day.
To much protein will be stored in our body in a form of fat.
About 20 % protein daily should do the trick.
Proteins are needed not only for muscle but also for hair, skin and internal organs.
Some proteins travel around your body in the blood as hormones, enzymes and red blood cells.
