One day in my life.
Breakfast
4 eggs 25.1
Protein shake 19.8
Oatmeal 8

Lunch
Tuna and vegetables 54.6

Afternoon snack
Turkey pepperoni 8
Cheese 6
Greek Yogurt 14

Supper
Various 20-30g

That puts me at about 150-160g of protein a day. Not hard really. Just takes some preparation.

A rule of thumb is to recalculate calorie requirements every 5LB lose.
