Post your best low-calories recipes full of brotein
Made these banana pancakes today, shit was cash
>because they are good
no they are not. They are complete garbage.
>not good for cutting
>not good for bulking
Whats exactly good about them anon??
Are you going to tell me its the taste? If so why are you on /fit/ and not on /ck/ ?
Yesterday I did a fairly nice meal;
Fried in a teaspoon of coconut oil;
150g of canned tuna
1 fried egg
Took it out of the pan and added
100g of cottage cheese
95g of corn
coriander and a few drops of a really hot sauce for taste
Tasted good too. You can skip the cottage cheese for a lower calorie count, but you'll lose 13g of the proteins too.
Or just skip the corn, which is mostly a waste of calories too.
I had limited ingredients, and these are not harmful. I can't eat cottage cheese and oats 365 days a year. I like this board, but you raging autists are sometimes unbearable. Anyway, forget I have posted anything and stick to the thread's topic, thanks
>best low-calories recipes full of protein
I was eating this, by I'm out of the 10lbs. of pepitas I got.
It's literally just 2 eggs and a banana. WTF are you on about? Can you read?
Omelettes. Fluffy and delicious, more low-carb than high-protein (22% isn't that bad, tho), and so full of micronutrients they're a vitamin pill.
Tuna salads - ok, that's almost cheating, most basic recipe ever, it's a can of tuna, with tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce, with some balsamic vinegard, salt and pepper.
Lentil stews. I use those to fill up calories and carbs, while still giving a decent amount of protein. It's useful during a cut to have a normal meal, it's easier to fit in a lentil soup than anything based on rice or pasta.
I literally eat that every morning and love it. I put fruit or berries in muh oatz so it never gets boring. I love cranberry oatz the most (1/2-1 bag of cranberries dumped into the oatz while cooking.)
Any sort of soup is good for cutting. Avgolemono is like a bowl of protein. I also do venison, lentil, and sweet potato stew.
Spinach salad with sliced steak (or comparable red meat. I actually eat heart because it's cheap.)
Salmon/crab/tuna cakes (your choice.)
Here's muh breakfast.
OP's has more protein per calorie, but I might have some of that as well.
Do you have any trouble digesting milk fats?
Because otherwise, why the fuck would you skim the butter away to put margarine in? Nuts and nut butters, I could understand, but fucking MARGARINE? Isn't it LESS healthy than butter?
My "margarine" is just vegetable oil spread. Both it and butter taste better than whole milk. Albeit, apparently oil spread has preservatives, so I might drop it.
I enjoy the way honey tastes. I didn't realize raisins had so much sugar, but if it was a problem (and probably anyway, as soon as a package gets here) it would be stevia. Calories though.
i dont enjoy eating eggs either, but they are damn good for you.
stirfry eggs with siracha, broccoli, and kale. cook until eggs are just beginning to solidify but still have some shine/wet to them.
eggs absorb the vegetable flavor OK and the crunch of vegetables helps negate the nasty mouthfeel of eggs
when counting calories, how do you figure it out?
I made pork loin and white rice for my breakfast today, but pork had multiple entries to choose from and could come in @244, 299, or 337 calories depending on which "pork loin" i pick off myfitnesspal.
r8 my high calorie lunch I just made
>fuck loads of oil
>one large onion
>180g brown rice
>large coop garlic/corriander naan
roughly 1100-1200C, and ill as fuck
>I can't eat cottage cheese and oats 365 days a year.
This is your future.
every single day now for months and as long it takes. cheap as fuck and pretty good.
>3 meals of oatmeal
I don't even fucking desu senpai
Get 300g beef, some carrots, two big ol' potatoes, an onion, some garlic, and peas
Saute the beef, set it aside
Cook the onions and garlic until they're brown but not burnt
Put the beef back in
Add peas, chopped potatoes, and carrots
Cover with beef broth
Bring to a boil and then let simmer for 1-2 hours
Fills you up, keeps you warm, and super low in calories
>Being hungry during a cut
You fucking retarded ass pavement ape. You're doing it wrong.
Cutting =/= Starving
You don't have to deprive yourself food to cut. Just eat low cal shit/shit that's better for you. I'm currently on a cut and I'm never hungry.
Go eat some veggies if you're starving.
This pretty much. You can apply this to a lot of things. Saute the ingredients separately if you want and then mix. I used some chicken and some mushrooms then mixed them together with some milk, 2-3 spoons of flour, 30 grams of butter and water and it was delicious. Add spices for taste. Low cals for a lot of food. This whole plate was around 700 cals with 56 grams protein.
Severely limit your intake of rice, noodles and potatoes. Use lentils and different kinds of beans instead.
Don't drink any calories.
Don't consume any sugar.
Use small plates. Don't do anything else while eating. Put the fork down while you're chewing. Don't eat if you aren't hungry.
Drink a protein shake with skim milk instead of breakfast.
Congrats, it's now almost impossible to overeat.
Counting calories is still easier and yields better results.
>can eat a good meal and be hungry right after
>just ignore it or drown myself in tea or water
>weird hunger schedule where I want to eat at 9 AM, 11 AM, and 5 PM
>hate eating at night
>try to delay lunch by going out on errands
>can also delay it if I go to the gym
Why am I so hungry in mornings? I eat about 70% of my daily calories before noon. I wake up at 8 or 9 AM, too.
Cottage cheese and pepper is the shit. I can't fathom eating it with fruit like some people do; it's gotta be savory.
You can get it at a store in a carton or can in the soup aisle. Alternatively you can make your own by simmering meaty bones and vegetables in water along with some spices for a good few hours. Roast the bones and veggies beforehand for a richer, darker stock.
You HAVE to remember to drink coffee. It's a very low calorie (almost negligible) way to satiate hunger.
Have a cup or 2 with breakfast to hold you over to lunch. Eat a snack in-between lunch and dinner.
After dinner, drink coffee for desert to avoid late night cravings.
Also, pay more attention to caloric density. It is possible to eat more food for less calories. 100 calories of broccoli is a shit ton more food than 100 calories of potato chips. Eating more food with less calories will satiate hunger better than eating less food with more calories
Maybe I'm being super autistic here but I don't like cutting with stuff like stews because I don't know what I'm getting when I serve it. Will counting the ingredients before cooking then serving 1/3 and assuming it to be 1/3 of the calories be roughly accurate?
maybe you call it 'stock'.
btw, if you'll make stock, use it with everything. it's one of those restaurant tricks to make everything taste better (the others being sugar and butter, stock at least won't kill you)
I add sriracha to my cottage cheese and pepper.
Surprisingly good. Tastes just like cottage cheese until you get that little kick at the end.
Then again, I put cock sauce on just about everything
>coffee after dinner
It's almost like you don't want to sleep at night.
Not a bad thing. I have the same, hungry in the mornings but don't really want to eat in the evening or at night. Doesn't affect you negatively as long as you stick to your macros.
People are just different. Some people can't stand breakfast but like snacking in the evening. The good thing is that statistically people who eat their main calories in the morning are more likely to keep stable weight.
>lelelelel empty cahlorrhees meemee
Shut the fuck up, I'm not talking about eating a fucking bag of sugar. But if for example I want to eat a 20g protein bar at work I shouldn't fucking consider it taboo because it has some fucking sugar in it.
Chef here, technically stock and broth are not the same.
If you drink coffee at least 4 hours before bed, you'll be fine
DYEL /pol/tard confirmed. /fit/ has always praised the ability of caffeine to satiate hunger.
I don't even care about the sugar. I'm just too lazy to pack a lunch so I keep a few protein bars in my desk.
If you have a better alternative for the same convenience I'm all ears.
>don't drink any calories
>drink a protein shake for breakfast
Captcha: select milkshakes
>actually defending vegetable oils
>some of the best eye-protective antioxidants
>while staring at a screen
>simultaneously implying peas aren't amazing
He probably is implying refined sugar, which is often in store foods and staples for no reason. Cutting that allows room for more complex sugars, even fruits, that don't hit filters immediately and simultaneously because of their increased digestion requirements.
Refined sugar also pulls nutrient stores without replacing any and can develop a hangover feeling, not to mention being poorly recognized as "filling".
>not making protein bars with stevia, a 300x sweeter plant
Didn't make that, but ground red pepper is tight; basil for that Mediterranean tone; curry powder for a more flavorful meal; Sriracha or jalapenos if you like really spicy; real / a shaker of onion; nutmeg; chicken seasoning; etc.. Probably in that order if trying spices except for onion, which should probably be in the base recipe.
If you can't drink coffee and pass out, you shouldn't be in bed.
Coffee has nutrients and caffeine has a huge amount of benefits.
>150% vitamin C
It's fine. It's also potassium.
>not coconut oil
I do meal prep, but when I cook chicken and rice I can weigh after cooking and know what I'm serving. With this it's a rough guess. I imagine I'm being totally stupid though and the fact each serving won't 'mix' perfectly when I serve it is a minimal amount of calorie difference
salt, paprika and some oregano. Also some pepper on the chicken. Go wild. I first sauted the chicken with salt, paprika and pepper and set it aside, then the mushrooms with the butter (but you can use non stick spray if you want) then added water to the shrooms in the pan and then start slowly adding flour until you get the consistency you want. Also added some milk, like 100 ml and then add the chicken. At this point you can add more spices if you want, just taste it. Then sprinkled oregano on top and voila. You can also make the sauce with cream but that would be too fat and I made it without and it came out ok.
This is not true, and why so many people struggle with cutting. They aren't prepared to hungry every once in a while.
You will get hungry. I'm hungry even when I bulk.
You may not get this, but my body craves food (not junk, just more carbs like oats, brown rice whatever) even when my stomach is full.
>Buy liquid egg whites
>Put them in a bowl
>Cook in microwave
>Take out, 250 cals, 60 g's of protein
>Put three slices of natural low fat high protein cheese on, 120 cals, 16 g's of protein.
>Put some bacon bits on, 40 cals, 2 g's of protein.
410 cals, 78 grams of delicious protein
Ever imagine that maybe hunger is for something you're not getting? I would imagine humanity got plenty of nutrition before micronutrient labels, and that's probably for a reason.
Bro, if you get hungry while cutting you don't understand how to cut.
Brb egg whites that fill up entire bowl, 240 cals,
Brb get to feast on fruits and vegetables,
Brb enjoy your crash diet faggot
Like antioxidants. Especially with lifting.
Salad + dressing/olive oil + chicken breast. Throw it in a large ziploc container and it takes less than 2 minutes to put together in the morning. Use Sundays to prep your snacks and shit.
Dinner: 2 eggs + 1 tbsp butter + hot sauce + spices in a low carb tortilla. If I needed more protein I would add chicken.
Sat. Fat: 9g
this goes a slight bit off topic but according to my calculations it would take me roughly 100 days to go from 16-17% bf to 10% so is it good for me or my gains to cut for this long or should i just go for about 11-12%? I'm 5'11 and 160lb
got the bf estimate from an other anon so pls correct if wrong
Keto will fuck his metabolism (read: poor atp energy efficiency)
Carb cycle if you wanna drop the bodyfat quickly but really, as skinny fat as he is, he should slow bulk until he actually has some muscle mass to cut down to.
is there some science behind this? the maintaining on keto part. If i dropped my bf and went skeletal i would still stand out in the crowd because of my age and where i live so are you sure about this?
Have you been to /ck/? Not exactly gourmet chefs that hang there more like THIS RECIPE TASTES EXACTLY LIKE BIG MAC SAUCE YOU GUYS, USE IT ON YOUR FRIED FUCKING BUTTER STICKS YOU PIECE OF SHIT
Healthy tasty recipes are always welcome in my book, but if you don't like that you're welcome to fuck off the edge of my dick you autistic niggerfaggot.
Based on the principles of the keto diet, you limit carb intake to 20 grams to get the body into a fat burning state. Cutting carbs to that low for a day doesn't really permit that to occur so there is not a ton of sense to the whole carb cycling. In the article I have read, greater metabolic efficiency occurs through the high ingestion of fats (Source: Ketogenic Diet for Obesity: Friend or Foe?)
The above source is your science, even though you're not obese. However, do your own research and do what you feel comfortable with. Taking advice strictly off a posting on a Mongolian fishing forum isn't the greatest idea.
Wtf has 60g of protein for only 250 calories?
You realize there are 4 calories per gram of protein, so you're claiming that your liquid egg whites are 96% pure protein.
In other words, you're wrong about your macros
Yeah ive seen some weird fucking info here and i always do my research on everything before i do it. I just dont want to bulk anymore and get to like 20% bf since im pretty fat even now.
Egg whites are almost pure protein you ninnyhammer, there's only 1g of fat for every 36g of protein in egg whites. He probably rounded the numbers a bit which is fine, nutrition labels do it too. I want the NYR fags to leave (you)
>keto improves metabolism
Literally only while you're on it and actually you're misunderstanding your own argument.
Keto changes a receptor balance much like cardio to burn fat but AFTERWARDS for like the 3rd time, atp production (your metabolism) becomes less efficient than before you started.
>source: motherfucking Lyle mcdonald, ph.d, the king of fat burning.
You need to learn to understand what you're talking about instead of regurgitating it because you read it. Learn how it interacts first not just "I READ THAT IT INCREASES METABOLISM"
33 g of egg whites contain about 3.6g of protein.
That means they're only just over 10% protein.
Not 96% you retard.
Before you call someone a NYR, you might wanna do a little research so you don't out yourself as one.
>mfw this fag thinks he can consume only protein by eating pure egg whites.
You said it would "fuck his metabolism". Not whether it was long term, during the diet, afterwards, etc. Regardless, if you had read the source I provided you would understand that putting your body into a state of ketosis does not change a receptor balance, merely how your body would deal with varying ketone bodies produced. There has not been much research into the long-term effects of a ketogenic diet (one sustained for along period) as of 2014. Please, do provide a source so I can get my facts straight. Everything I have looked at so far does not indicate that it "fucks the metabolism" as you so eloquently put.
I usually make this oat pancake of sorts. It's 100g of rolled oats, 100g of egg whites, 2 whole eggs, a can of tuna, some diced onion and optional flavourings like hot sauce or pepper.
Mix it all together until it's a thick slurry. I put a bit of high quality coconut oil to fry with, put a slice of cheese and then immediately pour the slurry on top of the frying cheese slice. Form it into the shape of a thick pancake and place the second cheese slice on top. Once one side if solidified, flip it over and do that. the result is a fucking delicious, nutritionally balanced and complete meal that will keep me full for the better part of a day.
Macros would be around equal amounts of protein and carbs with a good deal less of fat) and circa 600-700 calories I think. Regardless, it's god-like.
>500g egg whites
> less than 1g of fat
>less than 4g carbs
nigga you cant use google?
Hey senpai i went out and bought a cheap $25 food scale from amazon.
its fucking godly in determining how much calories you're eating/weight of the meat.
My split chicken breasts (i ghouth) where about 4ozs
Turns out they were almost 8oz so i was eating twice the calories without knowing it.
Its so helpfull for beef and rice too
You're mixing up weight with energetic value, fucktard.
97% protein in this case means 97% of the CALORIES from eggs are protein. In mass, only about 10% of the egg is protein, because eggs are mostly made up of water.
You're some special kind of retard m8.
The banana might make it go brown quickly, and I heard that you shouldn't store eggs for more than 3 days like that.
Pasteurised liquid egg may be different though. Anyone with experience of them know?
10% of the weight is protein (the remainder is mostly water), but 97% of the caloric value comes from protein (because water doesn't have any calories). There's a difference between the two.
When I say eggs I mean egg whites.
Now pls go and stay go, fucking NYRfag.
Google says that 1 cup of egg whites (243 g) has 125 calories and 26 g of protein, which means 83.2% of the calories are from protein (~84%)
I think your source rounds up the protein and rounds down the calories in order to make people feel good.
Still, my point was that egg whites are not 97% protein, like >>35500989
Seem to suggest
