Too much Protein? HA!

according to this a grown female human only needs 42 grams of protein a day, and a grown man needs only 56. In what earthly world are these people living? If I ate like that I would feel hungry and run down all day. I am just past the halfway mark in my eating day and I've already taken in... (carry the one) almost double that amount. I cannot imagine eating 56 grams of protein a day. No wonder people feel tired and hate to exercise. I'd hate it too if already felt run down, and then working out left me sore for days. Aye Carumba!

So, how do you figure out how much is appropriate?

And how do you accomplish 100+grams of protein "just past the halfway mark" in your eating day?

I try like mad to get 100g / day, and most days don't hit it.

Pre-workout breakfast: 2 Tsp Peanut butter 1/4 cup steelcut oats 14g

Breakfast: 2 eggs 14g 1 cup skim milk (in coffee or tea) 8g

Lunch: 1.5 cups quinoa and lentels 30g, shrimp 6oz 36g

that leaves me at about 102g before eating my afternoon snack, and my post workout shake, and dinner (and the occasional evening snack)
