    How to hit 150-200gm of protein on a vegetarian diet?

    Hi,

    I am 1.80cm, 71kg, and train 3 times a week.
    I am finding difficult to put on more muscle, so I started to track the macros. Based on some online calculators my protein intake should be 200gm, which now I am barely making it to 100gms.
    I find super difficult to hit 150gms a day, due to the amount of food I feel super full, and the other issue is that when I go over 1800 calories a day I start to put on fat.

    Any suggestion on how to hit 150gms a day of protein on a vegetarian diet without going over 1800 calories?

    Thanks!!

    Easy I posted this list in another thread but it’s the same info I would type out,

    cottage cheese, fat free cheese, eggs/egg white, high protein tofu, vegan boca burgers, beans and rice, flat out bread, fat free ricotta, high protein bean based pastas, edamame, fat free yogurt (I like light and fit with the fruit at the bottom and Kroger’s carb masters), nuts, Trader Joe’s dinner sausage veggie, chickpeas, whey, fair life milk, bars, etc

    Just gotta do your research

    I mean If you looking to add like 50 grams and based on what boo just said a I have a tub of this stuff it tastes awesome mixes great and has a lot of leucine scoop of this twice a day boom protein macro hit and it would even give you additional times of day to trigger MPS if you had them when your not eating. https://www.amazon.com/Limited-Time-...3750395&sr=8-1

    If you can't get in enough leucine, because you're in an energy deficit, you could supplement with leucine powder to bring up your leucine amounts
