I probably don't get enough protein, I'll work out how much I have each day. Proteins are broken down into amino acids in the stomach and absorbed in the small intestine, then the liver sorts out which amino acids the body needs. The rest is flushed out in my urine. I tend towards proteins in dairy food; milk, yogurt, cheese, and eggs. My body also absorbs protein from muesli, porridge, lentils and beans. A typical meal to start the day for me is muesli porridge, which gives me about 12g of protein. For my age and weight I could probably do with around 60g a day.
