The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    30g protein meals...

    does anyone have any examples of a meal that has 30g of protein, ideally it would include the other mass of carbs/ fat and calories also in it, but mainly any meal that contains roughly 30g protein;

    i have examples:

    50g cashew nuts
    2 glasses of nesquik with milk
    slice of brown bread with topping (jam/ ham/ cheese/ etc)

    protein: 28g
    carbs: 75g
    fat: 32g
    calories: 700 kcal

    OR

    50g peanut butter
    1 glass of nesquik
    100g conchiglie pasta

    protein: 32g
    carbs: 105g
    fat: 30g
    calories: 800 kcal

    OR

    100g basmati rice
    2 slices of best of both bread + topping (ham/ cheese/ jam/ etc)
    2 glasses of nesquik

    protein: 30g
    carbs: 160g
    fat: 10g
    calories: 830 kcal

    these 3 are all examples, however you notice that they are all very high in either fat or carbs, which is not great. Any other examples welcomed, so long as they are about 30g protein, and i don't mind if they include foods which i don't have, i can ask mum to buy them... examples low in everything except protein would also be useful

    thanks

    Why just 30g? Please don't say "because that's all you can process" or some other such nonsense.

    are you a vegetarian? You are only getting proteins there from milk, nuts, and grains. Look at Joey's post. Just pick a meat and then figure out how many ounces equate to the amount you protein you need. Try food calculator sites like thedailyplate.com or fitday.com

    cool cool, and its because i want about 180g of protein daily, so 180 / 6 meals is 30g per meal. i used to eat tuna, just a can but i ran out - ill get some more. and doesn't eating 5-6 eggs make you feel a little sick/ don't they get boring?

    1 chicken breast 1 fish fillet 1 quality sausage one can of tuna all of those have about 20-30g of protein and thats not even a meal.

    P.S. most of my meals are between 75-100g of protein with 2 shakes per day that have 72g of protein in them. then when i get bored i open up the beef jerky container and have a few sticks and I don't even count that bc thats just gravy. Plus I drink alot of water bc I am scurred for my kidneys.

    Agreed. 30g is just too little for one meal.

    Then just eat 3 meals that have 60g each. Done.
