Is the nutritional information accurate?

I’ve entered my weight and height etc into fitness pal. It says I need 110g of protein a day? Is that normal? That’s to maintain my weight.

    Sounds pretty normal, yeah.

    Unless you are a huge human, sure.

    Technically, it doesn't say you NEED 110 g or that that would be an ideal amount. It merely says that 110 g is 20% of your maintenance calories without exercise. (That's if you let it calculate your calorie goal.)

    You may want more or less for various reasons, depending on your size and goals. But 110 g seems like a pretty normal amount to consume, to me.
