Three times when higher protein is called for

Obviously, your optimal caloric intake, and therefore your protein intake, will vary depending on what you want to achieve. If you change your goal in the future to maintenance or gaining lean bodyweight, you're going to need more calories, and a substantial portion of those extra calories should come from protein.

There are times when a higher protein intake is necessary. These include:

1) When you are trying to gain muscular body weight

2) When you are using a low carbohydrate diet for fat loss

3) When you are "carbohydrate sensitive"
