Getting enough protein in your diet is important for everyone – but especially for athletes. Along with helping you feel fuller for longer, this macronutrient helps build and repair your muscles, cartilage, ligaments after a tough workout. Even if you hit the recommended guidelines, you may not be getting enough protein to recover fully from your workouts. According to the International Society of Sports Nutrition, athletes need more protein than the average person and recommends consuming between 1.4g and 2g of protein per kilogram a day
