I’m getting really tired of buying, preparing, and eating lots of meat of to consume protein.
I noticed that 100g of chicken breast and one protein drink (using the amount per nutrition facts given by the maker) are virtually the same price. Using an amount of protein that’s the same cost of meat, I get 15g of protein and some carbs, for a total of 84kcal.
Would I be doing myself harm getting almost all my protein from whey? I eat 5 eggs every morning, so there’s 35g there. Aiming for 200g of protein a day, if I got 165g from whey would I be doing myself harm or not utilizing the protein?
It’s not like I’m going to abstain from meat. I’ll eat meat when I eat out. Or when I have some time and I feel like cooking, because I do enjoy cooking, then I will eat some meat. But preparing and then eating 800g of chicken everyday is a real bitch. I’m feel I’m at my limit with it. I’m not even doing a good job of it anyway, disruptions in life that leave my schedule busy butt into the time to go buy and cook the meat and then my diet will suck for a few days or I’ll end up spending more money than I want to eating out.
Opinions appreciated as I’m pretty clueless on the nitty gritty of nutrition.
