Some people consume more proteins than they actually need. Proteins are found in meats, poultry, and eggs. Even though it's an important diet don't consume too much. Proteins will give you too much calories and fats your body can't really handle. Everyone doesn't require to have the same amount of protein. Women who are pregnant need 20 grams more protein a day than before they were pregnant, to support milk production. So the child can have it's proteins needed and none will be taken away from the mother. Greek yogurt and cottage cheese, mainly dairy products, serve about 10 grams of proteins. If you are an athlete you need twice as much protein as regular person, such as marathoners need about 50% more protein than the average person.

Macromolecules: Proteins
A Guide to Eating For Sports: Teen Athletes
Teen athletes like myself, we think drinking water, sports drinks, and eating the right things are all there is to “eating right.” Well, us teens need proteins and calories for both a good performance in sports and fuel to grow. Teens actually need about 2,000 to 5,000 total calories per day to meet energy needs. If us teens do not take in enough proteins and calories, our bodies will not perform up to par. We would not be as fast and as strong than if we were to get all the right nutrients for our bodies to function the proper way.
