It's not like i'm super active: no cross-fit, etc, no chronic cardio, just a couple of heavy weight workouts and a couple of yoga sessions/week! I don't eat eggs much (i have some form of sensitivity--if i eat more than 2 a week, i get sick...) and eat very little dairy (a little greek yogurt or sour cream once in a while). I'm post-menopause (and so with a theoretical metabolic slowdown) and a 17% bf (thank you mda...).
    And yeah, i was a vegetarian for 10 years before primal, and have only been primal a year. And had NO PROBLEM switching to meat (just made me feel better).

    What am i? Some kinda weird human? I have to admit, i LOVE the bulking my muscles are doing (no waif here). But i don't understand why it seems mostly FEMALES "have trouble" eating that much protein.

    Sigh. How come i'm NEVER like anyone else...... (LOL)
    200g meat or 200g protein net?

    To be fair, it is true. Some people are just bad at eating and say things like, "I feel full." and "Oh, I can't finish my dinner." It's weird, but true!

    120-200g. I just started eating gelatin and haven't cut my meat consumption accordingly yet.
    ------
    HCLF: lean red meat, eggs, low-fat dairy, bone broth/gelatin, fruits, seafood, liver, small amount of starch (oatmeal, white rice, potatoes, carrots), small amount of saturated fat (butter/ghee/coconut/dark chocolate/cheese).

    Around 80-85 grams a day from animal sources. Beef, salmon, cod, tuna, sardines, eggs. Every once in awhile lamb or bacon. About 1.5 ounces of cheese a day.

    I got 112g today from steak and eggs. I'm eating light for a deficit, I usually get more than that.

    5'8 male, 155ish lbs and lean.

    I'm adapting to more Keto lately, protein tends to be back burner to fat; I don't actually weigh my foods currently, but I'd guess in the 100-120g/range. This still may be a bit high; I try to find that balance point to have enough to avoid catabolic muscle loss while not having too much to bump out of ketosis.

    When I was less keto/more primal, it was closer to 140-180g/day.

    Thanks. Yes, that's the same - 2g per sachet, 4 sachets in a box. So Derp is having the equivalent of 8 boxes a day?! That would cost me about $21!

    Around 120 or so, depending. On fasting days it can dip as low as 50. I don't usually take more on workout days, but I only spend an hour at it. Don't know what kind of workouts you're doing. Maybe I should think about upping it...
