I'm trying to lose body fat, so I'm following a diet of about 1800 calories a day. I read that protein should account for a third of my diet. I read this article that helped me see how much I need to take in. I came out with 150 grams of protein. Since I started working out, I've made a conscious effort to take in more protein. However, I actually haven't measured how much I actually took in till now. I calculated how much protein I took in today and I came out with about 91 grams of protein. That means I'm still short about 59 grams. I ate foods with lots of protein today like chicken and eggs. So how am I still coming out short? Did I do something wrong here? Any help would be great thanks!
