I was trying to figure it out. I know on most labels it lists the amounts of protein for a 2000 calorie diet.
Is the amount of protein a person needs daily based on
The 85 year old I am thinking about only weighs about 100 pounds.
I thought I knew this information until I really started thinking about it.
Anyone recall the term used to describe those 80 years old and older? something like the "super old".....
but not that obviously.
Geriatrics is an interesting field,
anyone know any good sites, off-hand?
Don't bother to look, I will do it when I have time.
It seems to me that a 100 # twenty year old would have different protein needs than a 100 pound 85 year old.
But maybe not. Any thoughts?
