I know it might sound stupid or ignorant, but there are a few things that I don't get, really.
We talked a lot about macro ratios, calorie needs and so on and sorry, but there are a few things that don't make sense to me.
I'll give you guys an example:
- I'm 82-83kg.
- I'm around 15% bodyfat, I don't know, some of you saw my last set of pics.
- Three of my meals (I eat 5 or 6 each day):
* Fat-free milk - > 250 grams -> 7.75 grams of protein (Meal 1)
* Oatmeal -> 75 grams -> 10.5 grams of protein (Meal 1)
* Egg whites -> 200 grams - > 22 grams of protein (Meal 1)
* Protein shake -> 34 grams -> 27.2 grams of protein (Meal 4)
* Chicken breast -> 200 grams -> 41.2 grams of protein (Meal 3)
* White rice -> 100 grams -> 6.6 grams of protein (Meal 3)
These three meals contain 115.25 grams of protein. That means I'm eating 1.41 grams of protein per kg of bodyweight, 1.65 grams of protein per kg of lean bodymass.
I mean, most scientists recommend 1.4-1.5 grams of protein per kg of lean bodymass. I don't even count all the protein in my two (or three, sometimes) other meals. I don't think I'm eating a bunch of protein... but mumbers say something else.
What I'm doing wrong here?
