According to dietician Robbie Clark, there is a certain amount of protein that each person should consume each day. The amount does depend on several different factors, such as gender, age, weight, health status, and physical activity. The general rules are that women should have 0.75 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight and men should have 0.84 grams per kilogram of body weight. Children vary according to their age and weight, and pregnant women should have at least 1 gram per kilogram of weight. Physically active and elderly people require more protein than others.
