As a vegetarian athlete, one of your main concerns is how to get enough protein in your diet. This is made even more challenging during periods when you’re training hard and your need for protein increases.

As a rough guide, the recommended a daily amount of protein needed for athletes is between 1.4–1.8g per kg of bodyweight.
