One example of what your daily protein intake should be is the following table:
 

Food gr. gr. of protein per 100 gr. Total gr. of protein
Walnuts

15.23
0.76
Pecans
10
9.17
0.92
Flax Seeds
5
25
1.25
Sunflower Seeds
5
23.06
1.15
Almonds
5
21.26
1.06
Cashew

15.34
0.77
Cereals with saturated fat

6.25
Vegetables or legumes 1 cap

0.5
1.25
Meats or Fish or Poultry 8oz.
228

50.16
Your TOTAL PROTEIN INTAKE    
68.83

Your DAILY PROTEIN NEEDS:

Your WEIGHT IS 140 POUNDS
POUNDS/2.2 = 63.64 KILOGRAMS
Your WEIGHT IS 63.64 KILOGRAMS
0.8 GRAMS PER KILOGRAM = 50.91


RDA FOR PROTEIN 0.8 G/KG/DAY
Based on a diet of 2.200-2.300 k calories
FOR A DIET OF 2300 KCA: 57.5

DAILY VALUE :
50 G BASED ON 10% OF 2000 KCAL DIET


If we consider that people start to consume too much protein when their

intake is over 2.0 g/kg/day, we think that your intake of 68.83 gr. of protein,

the equivalent of 1.08 g/kg/day is adequate.
