also, since you cant have dairy, you can get pea protein powders & hemp protein powders that supposed to be really good. Former UFC fighter Jon fitch uses them

Also - you can egg protein powder too, Holland and barret often have them on special 2 for 1.



also, put some eggs into fruit smoothies - towards to the end of the day If I haven't hit my macros, I make a smoothie put some eggs into it, the fruit masks the taste of the eggs. citrus fruits work best.
This is also convenient since I cant always eat a lot of meals, this feels more like a drink, so it sits better in my belly, and I seem to process it well.
Give it a shot

If you have to open a box and add stuff to it, stay away from it. Simple.
Stellar advice.

how much protein is in each piece of fish ? do u like pork or beef or even both ?
I think Its around 25-30 grams. It's difficult to work out because the measurements are always per 100 grams, and 1 pice isn't 100 grams.

could add a protein shake to each snack time.
That's exactly what I'd want to do, but it's the dairy, that's the big hinderance to this thing.

Cheers Lee.

Steve told me to go for 200-225 grams because I'm a teen, who's growing and lifting at the same time, so I need more.

Will bare this in mind.

Thanks mate.

And a shake with:

Whole fat milk
1 banana
1 apple
Oats
Flaxseeds
And a piece of cocoa (85%+)

Not sure how many calories alone are in my breakfast, but i'm guessing a lot :P
Nice, that puts it into perspective.

Thanks man.

Oatmeal 2/3 cup (dry measure before cooking)
Soy milk 1/2 cup
7 egg whites & 2 whole eggs
Veggies (say onion, peppers, spinach, thing good in eggs)
1/2 tbsp olive oil

Fairly close to 200 cals each from protein, carb and fat.

You could play with the other meals in a similar way using the app. They already seem pretty good except 2 & 4 are missing protein.

Thanks allot for this.

That makes sense, also, I never thought of soy milk.

Thanks again mate.

Fantastic post Bam, thanks allot.

That makes sense. I should just do it step by step, get my protein sorted, then fats, and the rest carbs.


Thanks again.

this is a good source of cabs, and what I consider bonus protein, mixing the beans & rice makes up a complete protein, and will be a nice add on to meat, I never count on this as my main protein source, but its nice to round it off
Thanks mate.

Thats interesting.

I forgot that carbs also have protein, and of course beans and such would be great for that.

This is a great idea.


Thanks again.
