      no, its an impossible goal that is only good for fooling beginners into eating more calories. That's all body building is, if you want muscles, just eat more. No real body builder follows that shit unless they are doing a meme video

      Unless you're 300 fucking pounds what's so hard about it?

        I'd need 180 grams of protein daily. It's just too much food it makes no sense
        80 grams daily already seems like a lot (what I usually hit)
        Still gaining muscle so this thing is a meme

            shot of whey in the morning + greek yoghurt or curds. that, or egg whites. another 30-50 grams right there.
            not even big portions, only 3 meals. not even counting extra protein from any other food you eat.

            you fags over stimate your protein intake + digestion. You only digest 30 gr per hour. Thats why they tell you to eat 5 times a day.
            Also 8oz of chicken has 21 grams at best. Fuck your fake nutritional value tags

                All protein but whey is "hard to digest". Meat especially takes time, after a few hours in your stomach chicken is still half undigested. That's the whole point, most protein releases slowly and you never hit that ceiling like with whey.

                He's also acting like your body's just not gonna do anything with the additional protein. Like as if it only absorbs 30g in one hour and gets rid of the other 30g. In reality, if you consume, say, 90g of protein in one meal, then your body would absorb 30g of it in the first hour, then another 30g in the second hour, and then the final 30g in the third hour. Not to mention that it can take 5-8 hours to fully digest food anyway, so even if you had 150-210g of protein in one sitting, you'll still end up absorbing all of it slowly over the course of the 5-8 hour period anyway. I wish people would stop being retarded about this.

          Turkey breast: 104 calories for 30grams
          Porkchop: 250 for 30grams
          Just eat meat for a few meals, if you ate 1k calories of chicken, you'd get 180 grams of protein, obviously you're not only eating chicken, but switch up the meat, fish, eggs, dairy, etc. once you get your protein and cals, throw in some shit to meet vitamin requirements.
          Just grab some shit from this chart and make a few meals with these ingredients, you'll reach your macros within your calorie limit:

    Supplement companies took a bunch of studies that came to the conclusion that 1g/kg of lean mass was the maximum return on protein, adjusted to about .82g/lb of lean weight. They took these studies, switched kg to lb and then implied it was the bare minimum so you need more then they sell a protein supplement. They're also all roiders trying to hide the fact so they lie and say they eat something ridiculous like 1.5 or 2g per lb of bodyweight to gatekeep their physique.

    Keep in mind that .82g is an adjusted average. They take the true average then raise it by two standard deviations just to be sure so even that is a lot of protein. From there, eating more protein doesn't more mass and actually more cholesterol and saturated fat is better correlated with lean mass in these studies.
