    My respect ladies! What do you eat? Any chance you could share your typical day or even a week (food consumption)? I have no idea how to get more and I have to track my food otherwise my protein would be very low while carbs would go high...

    How I eat is kind of all over the place, but here's something I put together for my journal (and an experiment I was trying):

    If you ever wanted to know twelve ways to get 50 grams of protein, here are some:

    8 oz of 95/5 grass fed ground beef (304 cals)
    8 eggs (560 cals)
    9.5 oz chicken liver (285 cals)
    2 scoops NOW brand whey isolate (220 cals)
    8 oz 96/4 ground bison (262 cals)
    11 oz catfish (291 cals)
    10 oz chevre (700 cals)
    9.5 oz chicken thighs (meat only) (323 cals)
    8.3 oz chicken breast (meat only) (275 cals)
    6.5 oz pork loin fat trimmed (202 cals)
    9 oz salmon (297 cals)
    12 oz squid (274 cals)
    After I did that list, I also found out that 1% cottage cheese has a nice amount of protein: you'd need to eat about 14.25 oz for 285 calories and 50 grams of protein. All three categories, 1%, 2%, and creamed (which I think is either full fat or the fattiest sold commercially) are good protein sources with the calories ranging from 285 to 414 to get 50 grams of protein.

    I eat a lot of the ground beef and bison, a bunch of chicken liver, and probably more than average salmon and squid. Also I regularly eat ground lamb which isn't on the list and has about 5 grams of protein per ounce. I also like egg or egg yolk on top of burgers. Protein shakes have been my nighttime before bed drink lately. And now that I've seen the cottage cheese, it might be a cheap way to get some protein if I can find some with no bgh. I used to like it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on top.

    Hope that helps.

    I eat anywhere from 80-120g usually closer to 100. I eat twice a day with a whey shake a few times a week after kettlebells as I find it helps not aggravate an old whiplash injury. My first meal of the day is 3-4 eggs with a couple oz of meat and for dinner I usually have 8oz (raw weight) of meat, veggies, fruit, coconut milk yogurt, etc. I don't find I have a problem getting in enough protein. I find it, esp in the form of meat, the most satisfying of the macros.

    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.

    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!
