ive heard that you should get your body weight in grams of protein a day n i weigh 235 n i don't see a way to do that. i must not eat the right foods at all and what foods will give me all the protein i need

i take whey protein too n thats 20g per shake about plus what ever i get from the milk


i probably only get 150-170g per day... im not completley sure if u do need as much protein as some say but it prolly won't hurt

Do a double scoop for your protein shake.

I usually hover around 200g protein daily. It's not hard. I snack on cottage cheese.

I hit 270g yesterday on a 2200 calorie diet. If I was bulking I could have eaten my whole steak instead of 1/2 and got another 40g+. An extra scoop of whey, extra can of tuna. Protein is easy. Getting 200+ while on a low cal diet is the fun part.
