Protein is a much needed acquisition in any diet, Protein is a source of energy as well as a form of replenishment after exercise. The argument of how much Protein should one consume stems from many people being unsure on how much Protein to eat. 

In reality we should consume a moderate amount of Protein which will be enough to sustain us and carry out normal bodily processes. The Protein we consume needs to be relevant to us in terms of the amount needed for our sport participation.

Once we find our calorie intake we can workout the Protein requirements for every individual, In terms of the Protein measures we will multiply our bodyweight in kg by a set amount to precisely see our objective gram intake.
