How much protein should I consume when working out and building muscle?

This is quite individual and depends on your body weight and fitness goals. In general, the recommendation falls between .8-1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight. While this is a somewhat broad range, you can take into account how much you are working out. For example, a healthy adult female whose goal is to build muscle and get toned, would consume 1-1.2 grams of protein per pound of body weight. A healthy male would consume between 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
