Looking for Protein without the Fat

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Today I spent the whole day at home and a lot of time online. Negative? Sedentary. Positive? The ability to really check my foods and make the changes throughout the day that i need to make. I am to eat between 1200 and 1500 calories. Today I was close to 1200...closer than I have been in a LONG time! I tried a new recipe of my own...1 tsp of vegetable oil in a pan, 1/2 cup of green peppers and 1/3 cup of chick peas/garbanzo beans! Yummy! Still those suckers had more carbs than protein. I eat nuts and I have more fat than protein. Nonfat yogurt is okay, but I LOVE the Greek kind. With the nonfat kind I feel like I am eating overly processed fake stuff. Any suggestions anyone? I know fish is good, but I am also looking for a grab and go high protein item. I am thinking of protein drinks??? emoticon

    Thanks BOB240. I just friended you just so I can be motivated by working out and by the exercise drawings. I am going to get off of the computer in a minute and do some stretching, and then if I turn the TV on I am going to get on that great deal of a bike my son got while working at SEARS for $12! At this point there is nothing hanging from it like some people have done to their stationery bikes, but then again there hasn't been anyone on it moe than 2x since I asked him to bring it home. Thanks for the ideas about high protein low fat foods. I will remember those, and although I like the fat in my cottage cheese, yogurt, and cheeses, I will try again to go low fat or no fat. I do know that I have loved nonfat cheese in melba toast nuked in the microwave for seconds. I few of those were my lunch when I was thin...years ago. Thanks again! emoticon

    Protein drinks are ok but its better to make it through real food for nutrients. Having said that I use protein drinks because I like the taste :)

    Other sources:

    1] Cottage cheese low fat
    2] Tuna (30g protein for 100 cal)
    3] eggs (scrambled/omlettes)
    4] Chicken brest.
