View Full Version : So much protein needed, so little available!!
04-20-2002, 05:38 PM
I figured out how much protein I need daily and for each meal and I'm looking at the protein content in these foods and it doesn't compare! I come up like 30 grams short even with the foods with the HIGHEST protein content! I need like ~303 gms. a day and ~50.5 gms. per meal.
Carbs I'm not worried about cuz I can just eat bread or something but I don't want to come up short on protein with all my meals. Should I use whey as a topping? ( I guess it's becoming inevitable that I'm going to have to buy some anyway ).
I'm sure you're all screaming :newbie: but you've been really helpful so far. :thumbup:

What sort of formula are you using to come up with protein needs? How much do you weigh?

I weigh about 180-185. I'm not using anything...yet. I figure I'll have to buy some whey and I'll just have to use that to complement like a lot of my meals to get enough protein.

Dude - you don't need 303grams of protein a day. I'm lucky if I have half that.

^^ f'real man. I saw it and I'm like :confused:. But using the formulas on the WBB, 40% of my intake is protein and it comes to that. I guess I'll just try to take in as much as I can.

Try starting at 200-250.
Much easier on the pallet and the wallet.
Tuna, beef, eggs, milk are all good sources of protein. Try 1 gram of protein for each pound of bodyweight.

That is all.

Hey, I can do that...or get pretty damn close.
And for the tuna...I guess I'm going to have to start liking it again because I'm not too fond of seafood, lol.
