Slimmerkiwi made a great point...you need fat, you simply should aim for good fats. Looking at the numbers alone is myopic...you have to look at what kinds of carb, cals, and fat you are eating to get the most out of this. Not all fats are equal.

If you bring forth that which is within you, that which is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth that which is within you, that which you do not bring forth will destroy you.

i put a teaspoon of olive oil in my yogurt as it is healthy fat, can't even taste the difference.
also dip my toast in it for breakfast with a little no sugar added jams.

thank you all - all great ideas!
and i guess i shouldn't say no fat - should say low fat - i tend toward red meat.. but this gives me great options :)

i guess i had it in my head it was only meat. that is why sparkpeople rock - YAY for answers!

Is there any special reason why "no" fat? The reason I ask is that some fats (e.g. nuts, dark oily fish - and canned fish is often a cheaper option - avocado) are healthy fats, but in moderaton.

I personally get a lot of my protein through dairy - such as greek yogurt, nonfat cottage cheese, lowfat/nonfat regular or soy milk, lowfat string cheese, etc. A few more high protein staples for me are eggs (or egg substitute) and black beans.

I guess I should mention I am in Phoenix AZ - seafood is not easy to come by and GOOD fish is almost impossible...but it is another avenue to explore...we see a lot of salmon, but most is farm raised :(
I will have to see how tilapia is on the fat chart :)

fish - particularly cod...cod is a total superfood that has a very mild taste.
