One can easily get an idea about the protein deficiency. If you feel tired generally and you are having problem in doing strenuous activities then you should think that there must be some deficiency. There may be delay in recovery from strenuous exercise or after injury there may be delay in wound healing.

Hair loss or thinning is also one of the signs of deficiency. When there is deficiency of protein, then in addition to the shedding of hair there will also be shifting of the hair from active to resting phase. After sometime of deficiency, one may experience increased shedding as these resting hairs start to fall.

On an average if we see the daily protein intake should be 1mg/kg body weight or the protein should form approximately 35% of your daily dietary intake.
