Without adding too much more fat....hm....how about, tofu (just add some to whatever you stove-top cook and it will blend in), many cuts of meat, substitute beans for whatever you are eating that is high carb now like rice, bread, noodles. Also try removing carbs by putting yummy sandwich filling on a salad instead of between two slices of carbs, have your spaghetti sauce and meatballs over broccoli instead of noodles.
Sort of rambling, but those are some ideas.

Sunflower seeds have protein & almonds are particularly high in protein and so are pepitas which are already shelled pumpkin seeds. only 1 Ounce has 8 Grams of protein ...so this is really a smart snack! I get mine at Walmart or Trader Joe's.
Other protein sources are chicken, turkey, beans, peas, fish, cottage cheese, and peanut butter, parm cheese, romano cheese, barley, quinoua, kasha, Mozzerella, egg whites, eggs, A pork loin chop has protein, so does beef jerky, yogurt to name a few.
Hey everyone, I am looking for some suggestions. I have been doing my mealplanning and overall, i'm doing okay, but having some trouble balancing my carbs/fat/proteins to the recommended percentages, i.e. 50%/30%/20% respectively. I always seem to be a little high in the carbs and low in the proteins. Any suggestions?
