“How much protein would I need?”

You would need 50 grams of protein for weight loss a day, which is 200 calories. Do not snack and do not eat after dinner at night time, eat either two or three meals per day for the best results. The heavier your ideal weight, and the more active you are, the more calories you can consume. The idea of a 2000 calorie protein low carb diet is pretty much for food labeling purposes. Women may need 500 fewer calories whereas men might need slightly more, but the ratios should always stay the same.
