Amino acids are the elemental building blocks of protein and are crucial to the operation of the majority of vital metabolic pathways.* Specific techniques help us to measure quantitatively and qualitatively the exact impact that ingesting specific amino acid arrays has on different aspects of metabolism.

The amount of protein required per day varies per person. To calculate the exact amount of protein an individual needs, it is best to consult with a Registered Dietitian but in general, athletes and bodybuilders will require more protein to support lean muscle mass as compared to inactive individuals. Highly active individuals can consume up to 2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, which translates to approximately one gram of high-quality protein per pound of body weight per day.

The primary consideration when it comes to dietary sources of protein is the amino acid composition of the whole-food source. Based on extensive studies on amino acid profiling, the following list comprises several whole foods that provide high quality protein sources:

• Low or non-fat cottage cheese.
• White skinless turkey breast meat.
• Egg whites.
• Various fish like tuna, salmon and halibut.
• Broiled, skinless chicken breast.
