    The dairy part sucks for sure. Why not just increase the egg intake? I've found cheese helps me to put them down a lot easier as well

    Milk allergy is not usually from lactose, but from milk protein. It may be casein but may be something like alpha-lactalbumin and beta-lactoglobulin, which are present in whey protein, yogurt and other milk products. This usually results in allergy to goat milk too. You might be well served by consulting an allergist.

    I would try buying those pasteurized egg white cartons and maybe using something like oat/rice/nut "milk" if you can't live without some white tasty liquid.

    I have not tried lactose free milk, I suppose it's worth a shot. Thank you for the recommendation.

    If you think you might have a lactose allergy, have you tried lactose free milk? Our local store has a brand of their own called Mootopia. It's lactose free, has twice the protein and half the sugar of regular milk. Your local grocery store/chain might have something similar.

    My wife suggested goat milk as a cow milk sub so I've tried that and while it does seem to make me break out it is much less severe. No idea why or if it's not something else. I dunno. I'm going to do some meal prep for the week with chicken breasts and try and get an serving of that in every day. Most days I'm a couple hundred calories short and hitting around 170g protein. See how it goes adding the chicken.

    If you wanna add more protein up your egg whites to cup and. Add more meat , almonds , pumpkin seeds Also look into eating more beans and nuts you can get decent amount of carbs and protein with the combination .

    I typically use whey , Greek yogurt , animal meat , lactose free milk , eggs as my main sources .

    Appears to be an allergy. If I have whey I break out in painful deep acne around the mouth, mostly on the chin. I have tried different brands and different kinds. Even if I have a small amount of dairy, such as a slice of pizza or two I will get acne within 24 hours. There is mild stomach issues with it but nothing compared to the acne. It's a reliable outcome.

    Yeah, the problem is simple, I need to add a meal/more protein, the point of the post was to ask others how they were doing that.

    I guess I'm not seeing the problem here. If you add a decent amount of protein to what you have listed in your snack section, you'll have the protein you need. If you can't do any dairy, and Dave's question is important, you get to eat more egg whites and lean meat.

    I whisk egg whites right into my oats at the end of the cooking time and get more protein in that way too

    When you say you can't do whey, is it because you're actually allergic? Have you tried whey isolate as opposed to concentrate?

    If I have the beast calculations right using the recomposition numbers in Jordan's article I should be doing the following:
    2384 Cal
    215g Protein
    233g Carbs
    65g Fat

    I'm not complaining, with this caloric deficit I have lost an inch on the waist and 3lbs in one week since starting the 7 Week Hypertrophy. I don't have a weight goal, but getting my waist down to 33" or better would be nice. That said, if I can get my protein up I won't worry about losing as much strength/muscle. Right now I'd just like to consistently hit 200g of protein. The majority of that fat content is coming from almond butter, I put a solid teaspoon in my cold overnight oats and it's pretty tasty. That was my preworkout meal an hour before the gym today - cold overnight oats, a solid teaspoon of almond butter and a banana.

    I'd love to add another meal, but sometimes that's challenging if I am keeping them 3-5 hours apart and not eating right before bed. One thing I intend on doing is getting up earlier to get that first meal in earlier, then I can have the second meal around 10-11 which puts a snack around 2PM and then I'll still be hungry for dinner. It's more meals, which may mean pre-preparing and eating with reminder alarms hungry or not, or load up larger servings of protein at the meals I do have.

    I wish I could do dairy. A cold glass of milk is delicious. I also like whey. So many great and tasty dairy options.
