Protein is essential, but many of the WRONG PEOPLE(just like Gatorade) use the wrong amounts.
If you're just jogging and lifting casually to keep in shape, just eat right and look for protein high foods and you'll be fine.
If you do the following:
Monday- Chest, Legs, Traps, Forearms
Tuesday- Bis, Tris, delts, 2 mile hill run,
Wednesday- Chest, Legs,Traps, Forearms
Thursday- Bis, Tris, delts, 1 mile hill sprint, 2 mile jog
Friday- Chest,delts, Traps, Forearms
Monday- Chest, Bis, Tris,
Tuesday- Legs - 5 mile run, delts, Traps
Wednesday- Chest, Bis, Tris,
Friday- Chest, Bis, Tris, Delts, Legs, Traps 5 mile run
Saturday and SUnday: Rest
rinse, lather, repeat
(no more distance running)
Each workout is about 2 hours
Basically a bodybuilding routine...
Then yes, extra protein is needed.
I shoot for like 170-190g depending on workout day or not
Anything less and my body goes cold
I try to get what I can from REAL foods though.
