    So I know this topic has been done to death, but I was hoping for some good protein snack suggestions. The problem with me is I hate nuts, fish, yogurt, cottage cheese, tuna, and all that good stuff that every single thread is recommending. I know, I'm picky haha.

    I weight just over 200 lbs, so I want to take in about 300g of protein everyday [yikes]. I have 4 scrambled eggs & oatmeal in the morning with a mass gainer and a protein shake (oatmeal & mass before workout, protein & eggs after), lunch is just what is served at work, a 3pm protein bar, 5:00 pre-workout shake, dinner after (usually chicken), and then a casein shake before bed.

    By a rough calculation, I'm at 269g protein. I want about 30g more during the evening, but I'd like to keep it natural (4 shakes and a protein bar is more than enough artificial protein), but also quick and easy. I'm not looking to cook a big meal before bed. I'm trying to keep it at 7 "meals" a day, because I've heard the body can only consume so much protein at a time, so I'm aiming to keep it spread out.

    Any suggestions for a picky eater?

    Sure. East less protein. Eat more stuff from the other basic food groups. Numerous up-to-date studies show you don't need huge amounts of protein--even if you are a professional athlete or heavy-duty weight lifter.
