    Hi--typical day? Well, work days are diff than days i'm at home, but here goes. I don't usually eat breakfast (I tend to eat dinner before 6 pm and am not hungry in the morning). I work out fasted (if i work out) and eat around 12ish.
    Lunch = a cucumber, a zucchini, bell peppers, tomatoes (all raw), 8-16 of pork chops or beef steak
    I'll get hungry (usually) around 3 and will eat some leftovers from lunch (yes, my husband grills even MORE than that so i have a snack ready).
    Dinner = beef heart (often), tongue, or lamb again, depending--might be grilled, but often I've made some form of curry out of it in the slow cooker. I tend to get about another pound of meat, if not more. Veggies vary here, but might be some green stuff (chard or kale).

    "dessert" when there is some (often...snicker...) is my homemade ice cream made from coconut milk, 4 egg yolks (i sometimes fry the whites up to have with lunch. for whatever reason eating the full egg makes me sick, but i can down the whiltes...), fruit of whatever is around mushed up with some alcohol (citrus vodka? rum? brandy?) since alcohol keeps it from hardening into concrete in the freezer. OR, i'll have made a coffee/chocolate gelatin jelloey thing that i'll have.

    That tends to be about 150-180 grams of protein. It will be more on days i work because i have a 3 hour commute (i do twice a week) and i will eat chicken breast by the pound to stay alert and awake. Those days are much heavier protein...

      120g, give or take 20g. I generally end up with a half pound meat at lunch, 3/4 lb meat at dinner, with a chance of a meaty breakfast.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          Being a 110-pound 5'5" male, I go for 60-75g daily.

            Thanks. I'm going to order some Great Lakes. Looks like my stuff is pointless!

                Yes, it mixes right into cold or hot liquids.

                  Yesterday my main sources of protein were a pound of chicken livers, 12 oz of squid, and a protein shake. A few grams from some cocoa powder and powdered goat milk. Cronometer sez: 167 grams of protein. And only 41 grams of carbs. Except that it's probably not a good idea to eat that much liver every day, I could eat like that often.

                  I think it's about meatcentricity <---- new word?

                    I don't know gram-age.... But I do eat about a pound and a half to two pounds of animal protein a day.
