I've got my exercise routine down but I am not gaining muscle at the rate I want, and I know what the problem is; my protein intake. I just can't seem to get enough protein in my diet to grow muscle effectively. I read online that you should eat slightly under your bodyweight in protein per day to build muscle, but how do I do that? I currently weigh 180lbs/81kg
I've tried incorporating protein in every single meal. I eat 4 eggs for breakfast and try to include 8oz of meat in my dinner. For lunch I usually have a sandwich with roast beef or turkey. The problem is how fucking expensive everything is these days. It's 5.99 for a dozen eggs where I live. Even the price of chicken (my go-to for the longest time) has gone up. I'm literally eating through my savings and not even hitting my protein goal for the day.
Help me. What should I eat? Calories are inconsequential.
chicken egg rice potat broccol milk cheese whey. eat more to grow, eat less to shrink, its ez.
did you even read the post? Or just the title?
Im not gonna read your diary bro you should structure questions more directly but anyway I just did now and my direct answer to your direct question of how to get enough protein doesnt change. your financial problems are off topic. I mean wtf food costs money anon what can anyone here do about it? that being said, whey is going to be best protein by value just overdose on whey if you want cheap proteinz it doesnt get any cheaper than that unless you wanna go hunt wild game 4 free, thats the lowest it will go lol.
I really hate people like you with a passion
protein intake is more relevant when you are in a calorie deficit. Calorie surpluses it doesn't matter as much.
Having said that, just try and find the cheapest source you can, eggs are something to add to a meal usually, rather than the whole meal themselves.
Don't forget to add the protein from all the food you eat, the little bits from other foods add up
thanks. I usually do add the eggs to things like rice or hash browns. I have to ask though; why does it matter if you have a calorie deficit or calorie surplus?
I have but protein mix is expensive and I can't stomach milk so I have to mix it with water instead, which is disgusting.
you sound like a little picky bitch
just hate milk
When you're in surplus, the body is more anabolic in general
In a deficit its harder to retain muscle mass so you need more protein to be nitrogen positive
Good to know.
Water is the whey. Doesn't mix well in milk or "milk". You sound like a whiny moron. Ngmi
didnt read but have you tried protein shakes?
prot shake when u wake up
prot shake before you go to bed
chicken breast everywhere you can fit it into your diet.
>calories are inconsequential
>b-buh lactose intolerance
They sell bags of liquid egg whites in my supermarket. They look kinda gross but they're basically liquid protein. Buy those if you can find them
>bags of liquid egg whites
I had no idea such a thing existed but I'll look next time I go shopping. Ty anon.
1) stop being poor
2) buy protein shakes
A thread died for this. Holy fuck what a retarded fucking thread OP you clearly suffer brain damage due lack of protein you stupid homeless moron what is even your point also sage this bread
Seiten if you do not care about gluten
You can get most things at the dollar tree or Walmart for cheaper.
Idk if anyone remembers but a few years ago someone had a thread called something like TITANIC BLOATLORDS DRINKING SHAKES where they would post retarded photos like this. Some of the funniest shit Ive seen
