    20 grams of protein per meal?

    nope, that's correct. however, to get 20 grams of protein, you'd need to consume say 100 g of tuna or chicken and so forth

    Soy Sauce???

    just check the label - if it's made from soy and doesnt have wheat, by all means use some

    The weight helps though for calculating protein content. for instance, 100 g of lean beef will give you ~20% meat protein and so on

    Not sure where to begin

    for the food part, it's easiest to get a small kitchen/food scale. easiest to aim for is 30 g of protein per meal. (can of tuna == 29/30/31 g of protein) alternatively, some people recommend 1/2...

    that's a very good thought. the addictive effects of sugars and bread (as an example of carbs) are rather well observed. as long as the body gets them / is conditioned in getting them, happy sta...
