how in the fuck am i supposed to eat 150g of broteins every single day?
shit doesnt add up if i eat anything other than meat and protein drinks.
The supplement industry's face when a sucker like op is born every second
Come on, 1.5 g/ 1kg of bodyweight is a standard amount for strength athletes that do normal amounts of cardio (that is, every day).
So he's just an active, lean 220lbs man who powerlifts.
I mean, ofcourse it's Dan Green asking us this question, who else would it be?
1.5g/kg bodyweight is standard for strength athletes yes.
OP isn't a strength athlete. He's a guy who goes to the gym and lifts weights and stops when he's tired and then he doesn't perform any skill based training.
He fits into the active lifestyle lifter 1.2g/kg category better.
>tell people to read sticky
>people read the sticky
>sticky says 1g for each pound of bodyweight
>everyone acts like im the idiot here
The sticky is almost entirely arranged by /fit/ from 2009 or 2010 by anons and harsh. Knowing that you can assume anything scientific based is outdated.
harsh was a not older than early 20s who had no real education guidance on fitness, he simply looked and filtered information from the internet mostly through pubmed. Out of one of those is liamneesons website, a website where someone with absolutely no education wrote up on fitness from his 10 years workout anecdotes which predates even 2009 because that's when it got popular on /fit/.
Liam neeson is where the 1g /1lbs bodyweight comes from. An anecdotal man who used outdated knowledge.
1.375 g/kg if we're going for proper calculations, since animal meat is only 82% complete, on average and the baseline is 50/50 of plant and animal protein.
You can go as low as 0.6g/kg and do lightweight strongman (sub 210lbs/95kg) but that requires data that no sane person has on hand.
Do you guys really find it that hard to get protein?
Been lifting for about 2 years now. I actually get a lot more protein than my BW without even trying.
Just put chicken in everything (Chicken wrap, chicken and rice, chicken meatballs). Turkey works too.
If you only want one thing, eat half a kilo of chicken breast.
However, if you only weigh 150 lbs, you don't need to stick exclusively to chicken breast, since it's lean as fuck - You can easily use some "dirtier" sources, like fatter meats, some cheese, milk, put on some weight to fascilitate making gains (Don't go overboard though)
Say you eat an omelet for breakfast. 4 eggs is like 25-30 grams of protein, and since you slap a few slices of cheese on there, let's say 35. Guzzle down half a liter of milk with it, you got like 15 more grams. 200 grams of chicken with your dinner. That's 60. The post-workout shake, which shouldn't count as a meal, is 2-4 scoops with however much milk you need.
Numbers might be a bit off, I don't have my food with me right now and just pulled the numbers from Google.
If you want to keep it leaner, start your day with some greek yoghurt or quark, blended with protein powder if you like. If you drink milk, use skimmed or not at all. Chicken salad for lunch, grilled or boiled cod, saithe or haddock (Can also make fish cakes with it if your macros permit for the fat you need to fry them) with steamed broccoli for dinner, post-workout taste as your macros/TDEE permits.
The boring bit is counting the calories the first time, but once you've done it once, you needn't worry about it again.
Is fit autistic?
1lb of chicken is about 100 proteins
1 serving of greek yogurt is 15
1 serving of whey is 30 so we're at 145 proteins eating about 800 calories. you literally have 1200 to 2200 calories left to get to 200 grams. Fuck offfffffff read the fucking sticky
there's an example, I'm poor as fuck
>7 chicken drumsticks £2
>4L milk £1.50
>Tuna 6 cans for £3
>Peanut butter £0.75
whey is nice also, but expensive considering that you have to spend a lot at once. Cheaper in long run.
Go to McDonald's and eat double quarter pounders. You'll reach 150g protons after like 2100cal.
Drink skim milk. You'll reach 150g protons after 2150 cal.
Eat grilled chicken salads. You'll reach 150g protons after like 650cal.
Fuck off, unless you're eating cake you'll have no difficulty getting enough protein. Extra easy while bulking.
I dont really feel like being a meme. Youre allowed to be skeptical and not believe me, but shit...its your money youre wasting.
I guarantee drop protein intake to 80g for a month and youll be fine. Probably progress too.
Sometimes less is more.
I've gotta finally kick /fit/ to the curb. Every 3rd thread either contradicts the thread right next to it, the sticky, or professional lifters.
If someone is on a cut, or simply just dieting while lifting to cut fat and gain muscle you need at least 1g/lb of BW to keep up lean mass.
If OP is 150 skinny fat anon and is trying to exercise and cut down his fat % then he would need upwards of 150-180g, depending on how much of a caloric deficit he's running.
Granted, if he's just bulking, and eating at a surplus, then something closer to 120g would be sufficient. But these cucks talking about not needing that much protein unless he's a strength athlete are idiotic.
You want .82g of protein per lb of lean body mass on a caloric deficit and you can get away with .68 on a surplus.
1g per lb of bw would have fatasses eating 300-400g of protein for no reason. Only your lbm needs the protein, your fat can fuck off and should not be included.
