    Measurements in the Power Fast

    Hope I’m not being repetitive here but wanted some clarity on the protein measurements in the Power Fast meal plan.

    I use a food scale so would 2 cups of salmon, chicken, beef really be 16 ounces of that each meal?

    Also eggs are listed too. I looked up two cups of eggs and that would be around 8 eggs. Or should I crack open some eggs and see how many fill my measuring cup to 2?

    Yeah, that seems right both for eggs and meat/tofu.

        For what little it's worth: I, and my arteries, are glad I'm not eating that much protein in a day. But ... I understand where you are going with it, and wish you well with it.

          Considering that the standard portion size for meat/fish/protein foods is 3 ounces (WEIGHT) and that 2 cups is a VOLUME measurement, I doubt that the 2 cups of meat is equivalent to 16 ounces (in weight). But, I could be wrong. Maybe neilarey can elaborate.

            At a time I was trying to mesure my meals too, but it did not work out for me.
            So some tips to check your mesurements: when you buy meet, vegetabels, fruits you always mesure their weight.
            If you buy 1kg chicken brest you can separate it to 4 bunch equaly, thats 250g/portion and thats about 55g protein. If you are 75kg you need about 75-90g protein a day if you are 80kg you need 80-95g protein (depending on your goals), so in my opinion it is easyer and cheaper if you use your head a litl and do not follow the recepi blindly.
            (And 8 eggs are a ridiculusly big amount of eggs for the first meel of your day )
            And Welcome to the hive
