    Title. Protein has a powerful effect on my satiety. Back when I was on "the bodybuilder diet", my protein intake was 160 - 180g / day.
    Since peating, it was 90 - 120g / day. But I realized I get benefits in satiety if I bump up my intake to 140 - 150g / day.
    I am lifting weights 5 times / week and I weight 175 lbs now.
    The thing is, high protein intake can make it harder to avoid hypoglycemia and low glycogen running out.
    I'll have to eat a 3:1 carb / protein ratio at every meal.
    I'd also like to restrict tryptophan, that's why I bought a plant protein powder + BCAA.

    Try adding some tallow, it is incredibly satiating and can do wonders for general health. If you cook with butter it is enough to replace that amount and the difference is quite surprising.

    Do not consume Plant Based Proteinpowders, due to the nature of high resilience towards elemental stress, plants have high amounts of unphysiologic elements like As or Cd. Your protein intake is fine and could be increased further. Even the sedentary Peat is consuming 150g/d.

    The plant based proteins I have previously bought (pea, etc) are also very difficult to digest.

    I only feel satiated eating pork/beef, sometimes chicken. Fish and especially eggs do nothing for me

    It almost feels like beef craving indicates a slower metabolism. Which might be a good thing. It digests slowly meaning there is always fuel in the stomach to be used. But if the metabolism is slower, it is also getting used more slowly so you always have a steady stream of energy

    Fish digests quickly and does the opposite

    or possibly your metabolism is actually high and you crave the vitamin b6 from beef pork and chicken? Or b3

    Maybe tryptophan is more useful for growing muscle?

    To lower tryptophan I'd rather add gelatine/collagen/bone broth to meats (or with coffee or juice) than to take plant based proteins.
