Protein Daily Values in Cronometer
I am a bit unclear about how Cronometer determines the daily values for protein?
I am about 65kg, fairly fit (my Whitings scale says 9.7% fat today), vegan and trying to keep my protein intake relatively low. I have a Fitbit Versa syncing with Cronometer.
Cronometer estimates that 100% of my daily protein intake should be about 113g, which is way above the 0.8g per 1kg I understand is sufficient and likely optimum. I have trouble keeping it at 0.8, so I average about 70g or so, while getting all my essential amino acids covered, with plenty of room to spare.
"The National Academy of Medicine recommends that adults get a minimum of **0.8 grams** of protein for every kilogram of body weight per day, or just over 7 grams for every 20 pounds of body weight. "
What is the basis for the Cronometer guideline on protein and shouldn't it be adjusted to a level which is considered healthier (at least until one is in their mid-60s)?
