    How many of you are able to get a sufficient amount of protein in a day without using protein drinks / supplements.

    How much protein do you consume, and what products do you eat?

    I wasn't really asking for which foods are high in protein, I'm just wondering how many people actually accomplish this, and how much they eat. It's kind of expensive to have a steak for breakfast lunch and dinner ;)

    Then why did you say, "what products do you eat?"

    guys, let's keep this thread going without derailing it..

    simple question: does anyone here get their recommended protein w/o supplementing? if so, what's your diet look like?

    1g/lb isn't all that hard to get really. By eating a serving of protein at every meal you get there pretty fast.

    Yeah...
    I make a protein bread which makes me happy. I love breakfast food so the bread + eggs is a pretty nice combo which I eat often. Either as an omelet or as french toasts.

    Yeah, this was basically all the info I was looking for. I don't have anything against a protein shake, I was just curious if anyone really did it. I asked for a product list because I was more looking for a layout / sample meal plan.

    I *could* do it, but choose not to for reasons of price, appetite and convenience.

    Just use the foods that ceaze mentioned and turn them into a diet plan :dunno:

    The only problem is that you are going to need to be eating a lot of food at strange times. You're going to have to have quite a lot of eggs for breakfast to get 30-40g of protein in the morning. Either that or you'd have to eat meat for breakfast.

    Also, pre and post workout would be awkward IMO. I wouldn't fancy shovelling in a meal of simple carbs and protein right before lifting and then stuffing my face again right after.

    Ok dude, what are your current stats and goals? Nobody can make a meal plan unless they know:
    Height
    Weight
    Lifting experience
    Body fat approx

    Goals - gain weight or lose weight? Are you a fat guy losing weight or a skinny guy gaining weight?

    This thread was mostly just made out of curiosity.. Right now im 6'1" ~205lbs. My main goal right now is get into some better cardio shape and tone up a bit. Nothing in particular. I just started going to the gym really. Not looking to get huge. I have just been doing some reading lately and was curious how many people were able to achieve a high protein diet without a shake.

    Sorry for not making my initial post a bit more clear.

    There's about 1/4 cup of WPC in my bread recipe and that's all I take, really. So I probably end up taking in 1 scoop per day.

    then eat eggs

    P.S.
    I don't have a clue what recommended protein is, I eat some food lift some weights, and get stronger, if the OP would put some thought into it, it would not be hard to figure out how to get plenty of protein for very little cash..

    Liquid egg whites help in the AM.

    Then low-fat yogurt and cereal around the workout :naughty:

    Fatfuck I wasn't looking for someone to write me a menu. I just wanted to know if people are able to accomplish this task, and if they do, how do they do it.
