I must be an outlier. For my first meal of the day (about 3 hours after a body weight workout of 1 hour, 9 minutes duration. each set to failure) today, I had one pound (about, slightly more actually) of eye round roast. That’s 720 calories, 133 grams of protein. Then, I had about 18 or so in a whey protein “shake” made with the liquid I got from sous vide of the eye round roast. That is, I took about 1/4 cup of whey protein, added it to the liquid I got, shook, drank.
That’s about 150 (likely a bit more) grams of protein for my first MEAL.
I added some suet and olives to that. And salt.
I’ll easily – and I mean easily – get another 100+ grams at dinner, since I pretty much just eat meat for dinner. Depends on what my wife makes, though. Might be tomato sauce with meat. That’s on the menu for this week, as is the other eye round roast I made.
So, I’m looking at 250-300 grams of protein today. In two meals.
Now, I might eat less tomorrow, as I only have the whey protein for the first meal after my workout, and only on those days (2x/week) I do body weight training. If I do aerobics, I don’t take it.
But it won’t be a lot less, as I like the leaner meats and, while I’m not carnivore, I don’t eat a lot of anything other than meat. I eat some, but not a lot.
For what I eat, I can’t see eating less than 250 grams per day.
And I tried “high fat” for a while – and was never full. That’s why I went for lower fat meats. (Let’s ignore that I am trying to eat higher saturated fat, but that’s its own post.)
