I’m only getting 162 grams of protein a day. So I’ve decided to replace Meal one with a bowl of granola cereal and 1 full 16 oz carton of egg whites. Now I’m getting 207 grams of protein a day. Since I’m not adding a scoop of protein in my oatmeal, I’ll have a small shake 30mins after my evening meal.
