    The same as any age who trains with weights. So it's usually 1g per lb bodyweight. And both protein from diet and supplements.

    muscle wasting is common at that age. i would say that protein powder is not the answer here at all. has your dad had his test levels checked? i would say do that and then consider TRT

    Re: protein dose for senior

    Protein supplements are GREAT for seniors to take. The two best preventative measures you can take to prevent loosing muscle with age are:
    1. A high protein diet (1g per pound of body weight)
    2. Resistance training with weight.

    Literally hundreds of studies have shown that supplementing a seniors diet with whey protein prevented muscle loss and functional ability as they aged. I would start your dad off with 1 scoop per day and then increase it 2 scoops per day once he gets comfortable using the supplement

    Re: protein dose for senior

    Protein dosages are calculated based on body-weight, not age. So follow @muskate's suggestion regarding the dosage, and get your dad to do some kind of resistance training. It does not have to be hardcore, but something that will make him move.

    ^^^^^Exactly what I was thinking. 55 isn't that old at all. Definitely have him get some blood work to see if there is anything going on. If that all checks out then a high protein diet with some weight training sounds like a great plan.
