I'm finding it hard to get protien. What food could I eat or should I just get a supplement?

boil a pack of 12 eggs in the morning. throw away the yolk, eat about 6 of the whites then 6 more for lunch. boiled whites go down so easy. low fat cottage cheese, low fat yogurt.

I bought 29 tubs around the middle of last week. They should be gone by the end of this week. EXCELLENT source of protein.

Unless you are cutting and need to limit calories, I agree.

I think egg whites alone are a serious waste of $$. Just buy whole eggs and seperate them yourself. You can freeze eggwhites, so do bulk seperation at a time.

Maybe we could live together and I'd eat the yolks?

yes, but the amount of eggs i eat each time, i will have a heart attack from block arteries from the cholesterol. i get my eggs really cheap in bulk, and mostly for every 10 whites il eat 2 whole eggs.

Boneless skinless chicken breast from Sam's Club. ~200g piece of chicken has 41g of protein. I consume 4-5/day so getting protein isn't a problem.

doubt it. I feel it's a waste not to eat the yolk. Just keep it within your caloric needs. I eat 3 whole eggs every morning with breakfast.

nothing is bad about egg yolks except them adding up to lots of fat. But as long as it fits your caloric needs then there's no harm. Whey is protein which comes from milk.

Milk protein is a combination of whey and casein.

;)

Liquid milk is 80% casein and 20% whey if I remember correctly, although I might be off on that.

Whey is a byproduct of cheese production. Cheese = casein. Whey used to be dumped down the drain.

I can't imagine throwing away the yolks whilst bulking.
I kill 7 eggs a morning.

Cashier didn't say anything. 2 people in line questioned it though. 1 guy asked if cottage cheese was on sale...smart guy, considering we all know that dairy ALWAYS goes on sale :rolleyes:. Another guy started talking about all the great stuff I can bake with cottage cheese. Why do random people feel the need to talk to you? I would have liked to throw a couple tubs at these fools.

If I can remember correctly it was 13 tubs dry curd, and 16 tubs no-salt added real cottage cheese.

I didn't even know there was such a thing as "small" vs. "large" curds. As far as I know, they're all the same size.

Dry curd has basically no fat...the no salt added is 2%.

As I just said in another thread, fortified milk is my cheapest, alrgest source of protein. Mine is 6 grams/100 mls and I usually drink a litre or close to it every day for 50-60 grams protein before even considering food.

Whey for another 40 grams/day at least.

Mince, tuna, chicken, beef, or eggs for the rest.
