Dad thinks 1 is enough for adult men, 2 if you are active that day, 3 is greedy and he has had a go at me for being such a glutton before

1 slice of what I'm thinking of (the tiny little things) is like 6g of protein.
Men require ~56g protein. I.e. approximately 10 slices.. So no...

That's what I thought. But he's adamant it is :/

He feeds sufficiently for dinner although has an odd habit of chopping chicken slices into invisible chunks...

When I bring up that 1 is less than what the dietician at the ED clinic advised, he says 'but the eating disorder was a long time ago, you're much better now'

I'm like smh

Calculate how much protein you want a day and work out how to get it.

If they don't want to pay for it then buy yourself more food.

Perhaps it has nothing to do with protein levels, but merely a budget.

The PT said I'd need +100g a day for my goal.

That's not happening on my current salary.

60g I have been mostly reaching the issue is my father thinking that a 20g serving is a 'bodybuilder's bulk'. He started talking about not being able to.buy steaks every day the other day, I never even brought up steaks wat

Aye. 5g for lunch is poverty line though-in modern Britain anyway. I.know this is a bit of a #firstworldproblem

Meat isn't the only source of protein, so the answer could be yes or no, depending on the other particularities of the diet.

L
sometimes it'll be cheese etc. sure, but other times he has things like marmite or jam on toast for lunch and ai'm pretty sure marmite and jam aren't protein sources!

I've also been criticised for using a whole can of beans ir tuna before, or mostly recently 3 boiled eggs on toast for lunch (out of a 12 pack)

you barely need any protein in your diet, and especially not meat, it does more harm than good to your body

Cheers buddy I'm averaging once a week, trying to get it up to twice

The PT put me off the other day saying it's pointless lifting at all if I'm not eating +100g protein though, hence thread

Your dad is a fool, you know this, but there's nothing you can do about that until he moves out. It's ****ing ****, but it's a fact of life.

Can you cite sources? This is a pretty controversial debate. Considering that sugar is perhaps the single biggest culprit for a high body fat percentage

That's horribly small! You must have non-existent muscle mass with that protein intake :/. Your body would be breaking down muscle to source amino acids as you are lacking them from diet.

I personally consume 200 - 280g of protein a day on a 3100 calorie diet (Gym 6 times a week) and thus to me it seems even more abnormal O_O

Man you can't be that precise, it gets to pedantry and pseudoscience. Just do what you feel, don't over or undereat. But don't eat no carbs and all protein.
