I have friends that complain they can’t get enough protein.
They aren’t getting bigger.
They aren’t adding mass.
Now I could go hunting for flaws in planning and diet but I have a better idea.
Here is what I’m Doing, today, to get 200. grams of protein.
I have a 10 gram protein bar with me.
I almost always keep 2 protein bars or fruit/protein bars in my bag, car, and workplace.
I have a large coffee with 10 to 12 ounces of milk. That is roughly 10 grams more of protein. I often add a scoop or 2 of vanilla or unflavored protein to my coffee. That means there is a minimum of 10 to 70 grams of protein in my system soon after I awaken.
Today’s coffee has no added protein so we will say 10 grams of protein.
I also came to my meeting today with a pre-made chocolate protein shake with 2.75 scoops of protein in it. There is no milk in this shake so I can have it warm if need be.
Each scoop has 25 grams of protein. So let’s call it 62.5 grams of protein. Okay round up to 63 grams because my scoops are never level.
My total protein consumption so far today is now 83 grams.
And I haven’t had lunch, dinner, or an additional snack and protein shake.
Add a 50 gram shake, a 9oz steak, a cup of spinach and a 20+ gram protein bar and my total will be 83 grams +133 grams.
Also know as 196 grams of protein.
Now that’s a rough guess estimate. However, I’m safely within my goals range plus or minus a few grams.
So don’t tell me it can’t be done.
Carry protein bars and protein shakes mixed with water not milk.
Make your coffee protein enriched.
