Do I really have to eat 200g of protein a day to make progress???

How is this even possible... Even with a protein shake and a can of tuna every day that's only 80g.
>just drink a gallon of milk lmao
NO. I'm trying to stay between 2500-3000 calories and only gain 1 pound a week.

    >30-60g whey post-workout/throughout the day
    >another 30g before sleep
    only 140-110g left, easy to cover on a 2.5k kcal budget, it's not like you're cutting. (what even is your weight??)

        You don't need 200g of protein. What's your body fat percentage? I bet you only need 100g of protein if even that.

    >How is this even possible... Even with a protein shake and a can of tuna every day that's only 80g.

    1 8 oz boneless skinless chicken breast has ~70 g of protein and only like 350-400 calories.

    8 oz of 93% lean ground turkey has ~60 grams of protein and around 450 calories.

    8 oz ground beef 80/20 is like ~50 g protein and 600 calories.

    An 8 oz sirloin steak is similar at around 60g protein and 600 calories.

    The options are there if you're looking to clean bulk.

    2 chicken breasts, a sirloin steak and a protein shake should put you well over 200g if that's your goal. So meals like chicken breast or steak with some veggies and rice (or rice and beans for added protein too)

    Just take a few minutes to look up how to pull off a high protein diet, do that, hit the gym hard and you should be on your way to gainsville, you're going to make it.

    No. It just guarantees that protein is not going to be the limiting factor of your gains. Your gains likely won't even be affected at all if you cut out 25% of that because everything else isn't super optimal. I doubt your routine and recovery is optimal. You might not even have the genetics to make use of it.

    1g/lb lean mass. So if you're 150lbs you probably only need like 100-150g of protein depending on your bodyfat percentage.

    Boyo let me tell you something game breaking. Whenever you eat a meal and you get 20g of protein from a animal source, you can also count the protein that you get from grains/plants. So all that bread, rice,pasta,oats, beans, broccoli also comes with a 7-11g of protein per100g which also counts towards your daily intake. And 2500-3000 calories is plenty of fucking calories so shut up nerd

    Just shoot animals. There's more deer, bear and hog meat than you know what to do with. And then there's bone broth. Protein is by far the easiest macro.

        Yeah you should be fine with that amount. Personally I'd lean more towards 150g than 100g of protein to try to preserve as much muscle as possible despite being in a deficit

      How do you make it economical to heat 500g of skyr and 2/3 a lb of steak per day, am I retarded that seems expensive

        Skyr is $4. The steak is expensive, but I like steak. For cheap buy beef strips for half the price and make a simple stir fry with half a cup of rice.

            €1,25 is the current discount price over here. Used to be 1 or even cheaper but globalists had to ruin that. Well at least we're not eating bugs, yet.

            Just about. It gives me the most dietary flexibility later in the day. Sometimes I'll have a protein shake with ~150-200g skyr, berries, whey, and milk instead. Or I'm treating myself to steak and eggs for breakfast and the skyr would be overkill.
            The foundation of your meals has to be milk/dairy/meat/fish. Weight-training is an expensive habit.

        Only buy skyr/quark/yoghurt when it's discounted. I used to go for whey as a main protein source but current prices are just insane.

    No but it helps
    >How is this even possible...2500-3000kcal a day
    How do you not hit at least 150g of protein a day by eating over 2500kcal of real food?
    1 pound of beef heart is 129g protein and 21g fat
    4 eggs is another 28g protein and 24g fat
    That puts you at 157g protein for 1100 calories.
    You have so many fucking options to make up 43g protein. You can do chicken, tuna, salmon, steak, sardines, cheddar cheese, etc and still come nowhere near your max calories so you can make the rest up with any combination of fat or carbs that you want

    Is getting a lot of protein from dairy bad for you? I eat a half pound of chicken breast daily plus half a carton of cottage cheese and half a carton of greek yogurt topping off the difference with whey. Is that too many dairy sources for protein? Does that even matter?
