I'm trying to focus on getting more & more of my proteins in me, but I've come to realize exactly how many grams I need and I want to make sure it's right.
Keep in mind that I'm 227 and my research shows that I would need upwards of 200 gms of protein/day.
There's a market out here that sells trays of chicken - each serving has 30g protein, little fat, little carbs and each tray is 4 servings (total of 4 cups). That means that I would need to eat almost TWO TRAYS each DAY to get enough protein - is that right?
I do get protein from other sources - I add whey powder to my gatorade for another 34gms and I get about another 14 from my cereal (2 servings) and some from whole-wheat pita bread. But that's about it.
What other good sources of protein (besides chicken & beef) are there out there? How can you make sure you're not getting too many calories in the day while still eating all this protein?
Finally, does this seem like a lot of food to anyone else? I just don't know how some people do it.
