I've been working out hard and been lifting weights.  I keep reading that I should eat 1 gram of protein per pound of goal weight.  For me that's about 150.  I'm noticing my appetite getting smaller and smaller, especially as I drink more water.  And even though all my meals contain protein, I'm not even getting close to that goal of 150.

How do I add more protein?

You really only need about 0.8 grams per pound.  That's about the max your body can process.  That's 120 grams.  Not sure if that helps or not.

I have liquid egg whites, and make a big veggie omelet for breakfast.  I try to focus more on veggies veggies veggies, healthy fats, and then protein.  That seems to work well for me.
