# When calculating the daily protein needs for marathon runners or competitive weightlifting, you should allow for approximately grams of protein per kilogram of body weight

The U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance of protein for adults is 0.8 gram per kilogram of body weight. For a 150-pound person, that's about 55 grams of protein per day. But for most athletes, that's probably not enough.

I would say about 1 gram per lb of body weight. But opinion varies.1.4 to 1.7 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight
Need of protein is 36 grams per pound for the body weight. That is equivalent to 8 grams per kilogram. Such quantity is not enough for athleticism practitioners, in fact, endurance runners need 1.0to 1.6 gram per kilogram each day.This means a 165-pound runner needs 75 to 120 grams of protein per day. So the answer is the choice C: 1.0 to 1.2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight.
