So I have read a lot of different advice - the conventional thinking for years was an ounce of protein per pound of lean body weight. It may be that that was used because it was easy to calculate.
Recently I have read conflicting advice - so I am trying to get it straight.
Once we establish the ratio - then I would like to understand how to calculate it.
Traditionally I have weighed the meat I was eating and that was that - however even a chicken breast is not 100% protein (yeah I don’t really get that either) According to the packaging a 100g chicken breast has only 31g of protein. using the 1 gm per lean lb of bodyweight that means I need to consume 180 grams of protein per day - or 60 per meal - does that mean I should eat 200g of chicken per meal (easy)or 10 eggs (not so easy)!!!
Also should I use the carb amounts in my overall meal calculations?
Finally - is it OK to get my carbs from vegetables, or do I need the carbs from starches?
