    I eat a lot of beans, lentils, protein drinks, greek yogurt, low-fat cottage cheese, nuts, soy,low-fat string cheese , etc.. I get about 45 - 50 grms per day but the dr wants me to get 65 gms. It's difficult.
    fLAX seed has some protein, but is known more for fiber and amino acids. I take 2 tablespoons a day. Protein drinks provide a lot of protein...they help a lot without adding a lot of calories. You have to watch the nuts. I take 10 nuts at a time, twice or three times a day depending on what else I eat that day. It's really a balancing act!!!
    If you discover more tricks for getting enough protein without excessive calories, let me know! emoticon Good luck!

    Hello Scorpio, having read your comment about being followed by a nutritionist I'd really like to know how your protien requirements are met; I live in france and keep being told that, as a vegetarian, my protein requirements can never be met without blowing the calorie "budget" totally. They keep saying that it is essential that I eat either chicken or fish at least once a day but for me that is not an option. Any advice? Oh, and is flax seed high in protien? Thanks.
