I was reading the beginners articles (t-dawg diet) and I have a question. It says you should strive for 1.5g of protein per lb. of body weight per day. I’m 195 so that’s about 292g per day, how the hell can I get that much protein? I’d have to take a scoop of whey protein at every meal (6 times a day) to get even half of it in plus 30g each meal of regular protein. I feel like I’d being devoting my day to eating. Is this realistic?
How do you guys get your protein in and how much do you eat? Do you follow the l.5g/lb. idea? I’m trying to put on some muscle.
One last thing, how can you tell if a food has BCAA’s in it or not? I’ve heard chocolate milk does but I don’t know how to tell. Forgive me if I’m just stupid but I don’t even know what BCAA’s are other than some type of amino acids.
