I can't stand the protein powders. So I have been making shakes without it just calculating the amount of protein so I am getting enough

  • Is that ok? I am also eating 1 egg to make sure.

    Maybe you should try a different protein shake. There are a lot out there. Some are not tasty at all. Others are great but have a lot of sugar. I'm using BSN Syntha 6. I've liked it for a while. It tastes great and doesn't have too much sugar. Your body needs protein to help you build the muscles that will help burn calories.

    One egg has 70 calories and 6 grams of protein. One scoop of my protein shake has 200 calories and 22 grams of protein. The calories and grams of protein change depending on the shake. Try a few.

    Let's do this!!!

    One egg isnt really enough of a replacement for the protein powder. Protein powders have on average 24grams of protein per scoop. So one egg at 6grams of protein you would need about 4 eggs a day to make up the difference. Alternatively you could try adding hemp seeds to your diet they have 17grams of protein per 3 tablespoons and are a complete protein. Their good in salads, blended into shakes in place of the powder, or made into protein bars in place of the powder. So one egg and 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds would give you about the right amout.

      I wasn't replacing the protein powder with one egg. I am also drinking a shake with different things in it that adds up to the amount of protein in the shake and also eating an egg. Sorry for the confusion
