  • How much protein on average do you eat a day?

    I'm 160 lbs and on workout days I get around 170g and on off days I stay around 120g. What about?

    I honestly don't count. It would be too time consuming to weigh everything and count it all.
    I try to eat what makes my body happy.
    Today I'll have a lot of protein. I have egg pie with veggetables and fish for dinner, pancakes for breakfast and mini meat loaf for lunch... so I'm sure I eat enough protein today to last me a few days...
    My story, My thought....

    It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

      Usually something like a pound of chicken hearts, or a half-pound of steak and 4 to 6 eggs, or similar. I was eating a pound of liver at once, but the last time I ate more like only 1/2 pound with some cod and it was great.

          I am trying to get to 200/day (I am 210lbs)

          Hit 163gm today.

          Protein Shake for breakfast
          Grilled chicken salad for lunch
          Buffalo Beef Stick after lunch
          Protein Shake post workout
          8oz of Roast Lamb for Dinner w/Sweet potato
          Protein Bar evening
          1/4 cup Macadamia nuts late night.

          Going for Bacon/Eggs tomorrow, and adding more chicken at lunch.

          Having a hard time getting to 200, and keeping carbs at about 100, trying to get down to 190lbs (6'1")

            It's really not that hard for me. 32oz of lowfat cottage cheese is already 112g, plus 64g more coming from 8 packets of gelatin is 176. Rest is just some meat, oysters, eggs, and milk, and I easily get up to 250g+

            I only weigh 150lbs though(now less)

              Roughly 130g a day. Sometimes more, sometimes less.

                  I've only got the Knox Gelatin, which is 2g of protein per pack (I think they are tablespoon servings). Are the packs you get bigger, or more potent?

                    About 90-120 on average. I don't supplement though.

                      my packets say 2g/serving with 4 servings in a packet. read yours again .... unless you really do have super small packets.

                        Anywhere from 130g to 180g of protein, depending on what tastes good (beef and pork mostly, sometimes fish, rarely chicken).
                        Usually under 50 g carbs, always veggies (i don't like fruit), but don't limit them, they just end up there.
                        Around 60-80 grams of fat on most days.
                        I don't work out as hard as most of you, it sounds like--but lift heavy 2x/week and yoga 2x week (not the same days).

                          I'm a female 57kg (126lbs) seriously struggling to hit 100g (and I haven't yet) but I refuse to take supplements. My highest was yesterday at 92g, usually it's around 70-80 with a big effort to get it in while keeping carbs under 100g.

                            130-150 grams is what I shoot for. I can normally hit that with protein supplementation.

                              A couple hunge at least. Way > 1g/lb of bodyweight, including whey protein isolate. But I don't really count.
