I started an exercise scheme a couple of months ago without paying too close attention to my diet. I’ve learned that you are to do. 5-. 7 g/ lb of body weight, and more if you are active trying to build muscle. For me, thats about 120 g of protein a day.
How on earth are you supposed to do this? Meats have high protein but high in saturated fat, which the AHA says to limit to 13 g day. Eggs have like 6 g of protein but high cholesterol. I’ve been eating fat free yogurt but that’s still 6 g of protein per cup for the inexpensive brand and 12 g per cup for more expensive greek yogurt. A can of kidney beans, which is around a dollar, is still merely 21 g of protein.
Many protein supplements are loaded with saturated fat. One bar I assured was 30 g of protein but 5 g of sat. fat. Other powder supplements were still 20 -3 0g protein and 3.5 sit. fat.
How can I reach my aim inexpensively but still maintain other dietary considerations?
