For a few days i've been trying to increase my protein. I use 4 scoops of protein in my shake, which i drink half before, and half after my workouts. I take a nutrament when i wake up or before i go to sleep which has about 16 g of protein in it. I eat a protein meal after i workout, and one before i go to sleep, and usually one before i workout. I figure my meals are about 30g of protein each so from shakes i get about 100G, + 90G and maybe 6 grams for milk, only equals 196g. Right now i weigh 190lbs, and im trying to get 50-60 more G than my bodyweight.

if you dont like tuna but need the protien try a tuna bacon sandwhich. I use dempsters 100%wholegrain and 3 slices of bacon with tuna and a lil bit of mayo mixed. Toast the bread, other wise it can get soggey.

If your bulking the extra fat in the bacon wont hurt you to much, but it completly drowns out the tuna flavor, and all together youll get about 45g of protien from this snack and a **** load of calories. ( llots from the bacon tho)

"Right now i weigh 190lbs, and im trying to get 50-60 more G than my bodyweight"

Just have a larger portion of protein with each of your meals. If you are eating a 4 oz chicken breast start eating 6 oz chicken breasts. If you are eating 8 egg whites make it 12.
30 gr of protein per meal is not a huge amount of protein. Increasing it to 40 or 50 won't hurt you.

I'm with him. As long as that is spread out throughout the day, that's plenty of protein. If you are trying to increase your protein because you are stagnating, you may just need more overall calories. I've gained 10 lbs in about 5 weeks and am stuck at 180. I need more calories too!

drink three 60g shakes a day + your meals (90g) = 270g.

3 60g shakes is quite a bit.

100g per day would be about 13% of calories on a 3000 calorie diet. I would suggest entering your diet at www.fitday.com and getting a more accurate estimate of your protein total. If you really are consuming under 100g of protein per day from foods, then I would recommend focusing on improving your diet.

check peoples journals or do a search it's not all that hard to get more then what you are consuming from actual food.
