How is that possible? You have to have at least a couple carbs, there in almost everything... unless you just eat meat and drink water/ hard liquor all week?

No doubt I eat tonnnns of hamburger and poultry but when you eat something like a hamburger your eating a bun with it and buns have carbs, so unless you can afford to just eat steak or plain chicken all the time I would find it rather hard. I guess the chicken is cheap, but chicken 5 days a week would get old really quick.

You could always do shrimp. Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it.

^ I totally forgot about fish. Thats why asians are usually so fit! It doesn't matter much to me because even if I sat and ate nothing but potato chips and ice cream all week I still wouldn't gain but maybe a pound. I'm sure it'll catch up to my heart though when I'm older...

There's the problem then. There's no way I could put away 8 chicken breasts in a day. And I'm assuming that would be in addition to eating other shit like fruits, grains, and vegetables. How does somebody even go about getting that much food into themselves? 4 meals?

I'm not kidding either, I'd actually like to know how a normal sized 160 lb person can eat that much without being in a perpetual food coma.

There are other things higher in protein than chicken... I had cereal with milk this morning for breakfast. (probably about 15g)... Lentil soup is high in protein, cottage cheese, shrimp, etc. etc. etc. I think to hit that 240g per day stat you'd pretty much have to consume shakes to supplement.

The other issue is protein absorption. From what I've read your body can only absorb about 50 grams of protein per meal while the rest will just be passed through as waste. So to get to 240g/day you'd have to have 5 meals with 50g or so in them.

I was trying to consume 150g a day and found it difficult.

Drink lots and lots of milk. A gallon of milk has 120g of protein. Plus if you drink it throughout the day, you have a much better chance of absorbing it.

People naturally develop lactose intolerance as they age so milk is only a solution for the youth. Chocolate milk is one of the best post natural post workout drinks.
