Packing in the Protein
Saturday, July 14, 2012
I've begun adding more protein to my diet.
It is more difficult to reach my limit of 2000 calories per day this way. That is a good problem to have. I just need to be sure I continue to consume enough carbs and fat, as well. Drawing from experience, my fiber intake needs to remain high or the extra protein could cause my 'system' to slow down. We'll see how it goes.
What are your favorite protein dense foods? I like fat free cottage cheese, chicken breast, low fat roast beef lunch meat, and eggs.
Here are my daily calories for this week:
Sat., July 7 – 1,932
Sun., July 8 – 2,012
Mon., July 9 – 1,958
Tues., July 10 – 3,087 -->I ate lunch at a restaurant and splurged on a dessert.
Wed., July 11 – 1,607
Thurs., July 12 – 1,642
Fri., July 13 – 1,949
Have a good weekend.
