Protein & Fiber

Thursday, June 14, 2012

I know protein is an important nutrient for weight loss. When I get enough protein, I don't have headaches, I feel good, and I feel fuller longer. What are some good ways to get the minimum 60g of protein per day? I find myself struggling with this.

Also, fiber. Getting to 25g of fiber per day is difficult without consuming insane amounts of carbs. I'm doing well if I get 15-20g per day. Suggestions?

    I have being using protein in all these weird ways this week- Protein pancakes made with protein powder, oatmeal with protein powder, smoothies with protein powder, amaze balls with protein powder! haha
Also eating boiled eggs for a snack, greek yogurt or cheese helps!
Let me know if you want recipes!

    COLESLAW with red and green cabbage is a good source of fiber and veggies.
I keep a container in my fridge and add the dressing last minute
(there are plenty of recipes for confetti coleslaw... red/green cabbage & carrots)

my asian dressing is rice wine vinegar, a little sesame or olive oil, and grated ginger.

    TARGET has Fiber Gummy Supplement that are 5g of fiber for 10 calories. They are really good!! As for the protein, your target should be a little higher in the 70g range or higher. The protein will provide you a full feeling.

If you shop at COSCO, they have Premier Protein shakes, which the chocolate is like drinking a chocolate milk at 30g of protein with 160 calories. Provides a nice full feeling after drinking it too. I hve not tried the vanilla, so don't know how the taste is for that one.
