How much protein do you really need?

A US News & World Report article examined a number of popular high-protein diets and quoted a UBC researcher who said that people need to pay attention not only to the amount of protein they take but also to when they get that protein.

“There is some evidence that spreading your daily protein intake across all meals would be more beneficial [than having] a low-protein breakfast, some protein at lunch and excessive protein at dinner, as currently followed by most people,” said Rajavel Elango, a researcher in the School of Population and Public Health at UBC.
