Let nutrition be easy with this protein macro cheat sheet. Most people don’t get enough protein in their diet. So here’s 17 different ways to get 20 grams of protein, no food tracking app required!
Feel free to screenshot or print these off so you can reference them later (triple bonus points if you stick them on your fridge, cuz that’d be super cool!)
I already handled all the raw and cooked conversions for you in the infographic. So the meat entries in the infographic are COOKED weight. So you can weigh out whatever you need on a food scale… or feel free to eyeball if that’s more your thing (3 oz of meat will be about the size of a deck of cards).
Each bulletpoint below is about 20 grams of protein.
So that means:
- 3 = 60 grams protein
- 4 = 80 grams protein
- 5 = 100 grams protein
- 6 = 120 grams protein
… and so on.
Hopefully this is obvious, but you could also double anything on the list to get ~40 grams of protein. Which would be more ideal than trying to pick eleventy billion things off the list and eat them all in one day. What I’m saying is 3 oz cooked beef is about 21 grams protein, so 6 oz cooked beef will be about 42 grams protein. Work smarter, not harder. Let it be easy (:
