So I've been doing Paleo diet and a paleo-esque workouts for two and a half months now, I've been trying to increase my knowledge on the subject but only have so much spare time due to having 2 jobs, I've been reading and reading... And reading. Whilst reading I came upon the information that I should be aiming for a protein goal of 1:1 gram for pound of bodyweight. I Rhetorically replied to this saying: "Is this really the case? Holy crap!"
Now I don't do a lot of calculating when it comes to food unless I absolutely HAVE to(tedious beyond belief!) but I calculate my actual food intake, give or take 10grams for variation in food producers, and it comes to 110grams, I weigh 170grams, with probably 15-18% bodyfat(I want 10% BDF for my abbs).
My goals are to lose fat and gain some muscle.
here's my general daily nutrition: Breakfast: 30g's of home made granola, 2 dessert spoons of greek yoghurt, 1 handful of berries.
Mid-morning snack: 1 full avocado(medium sized).
Lunch: 1 medium sized Tin of Salmon(listed as 21.9g's of protein with 25 grams of veggies and 1 handful of nuts.
Afternoon snack: 1 full avocado(medium sized).
Dinner: 2 grass-fed 1/4 pound beef burgers. A dessert of a 85% dark chocolate and grass-fed butter sandwhich (ie: 2 small chunks of the choco surrounding a moderate slice of butter.)
After doing some working out I figured if I added a tin of tuna to mid-morning snack, a chicken breast to the afternoon snack and have a tin of salmon a couple of hours after dinner I would come to 184.3grams of protein.
What do you guys think of my own ideas for hitting that goal? Got any better ideas? Possibly some cheaper alternatives that don't involve whey protein or other supplements?
I'm looking forward to what you guys have to say!
