senior fitness with meredith

Taking in protein is an important aspect to living a healthy and active lifestyle. We all know that adding protein to your meals helps your body build and maintain muscle which is very important when it comes to being able to handle the physical activities throughout the day (carrying groceries, going up stairs etc).

But do you know how MUCH protein you should be consuming on a daily basis to best optimize your muscle growth and health?

In This Episode You Will Learn:

1). Why we decided to dedicate this important topic to a full episode and what prompted us to address the issue.

2). How there is a misconception that eating a lot of protein is only for people who are trying to build big muscles which, is not true.

3). Meredith’s research on what is an ideal amount of protein grams to take in based on your weight.

4). Some of the foods that Meredith recommends to include in your diet that have higher protein levels.

5). Why it’s important to be aware of the nutritional information on the food products you buy and how that can help improve your overall diet.


Protein is one of the building blocks of strength, stability and longevity. As we age, we tend to lose muscle which can make us feel weaker and less motivated to stay active. Knowing how much protein your body needs as you go through the later stages in life is an important aspect of maintaining health, longevity and independence well into the future.
