Is 50 grams of protein and 20 grams of fat what you have remaining in your Sparkpeople protein and fat ranges for the day.

I am confused by your question. If you make your NUTRITION TRACKER public, I can give more helpful tips. Let me know if you need the steps to do this.

Can you share more??

Why would you be working out for 3 hours? We don't need to do this much for weight-loss, except maybe if you are seriously training for something.

Below is a link that may be helpful:

As far as your question is concerned, lean red meat, fish or skinless chicken would perhaps be your best bet, but even then, you would need to eat a fair bit.

My daily usually includes:

7 egg whites (28 g)
2 cups nonfat milk (16 g)
1 cup black beans (15 g)

That's 59 grams protein, just about no fat. I take in a lot more protein than that when I'm working on strength, and I also target minerals (hence the beans).

You need low fat protein sources. Fat free Greek yogurt (chobani is my fav) lean meats like chicken, tuna, turkey, venison, even lean ground beef, can all help reach this goal. Remember there is protein also in things like oatmeal and whole wheat bread. Skim milk, low fat string cheese, almond butter in moderation can help too.

If you are still having trouble consider protein bars, but be careful of what you choose, I'd recommend life choice (chocolate mint is pretty good) has 20 grams if protein in one bar, aaaand....can't remember fat right off the top of my head but it is nothing that should blow your range.

Don't forget fat free refried beans! also navy beans, pinto beans, any legumes.

Shrimp, grilled chicken breast, tuna, and nonfat/lowfat diary are all high protein and lower fat. I usually keep a bag of precooked frozen shrimp for days I need more protein- 3 oz is about 18g protein and only 80-90 calories.

It's tough to provide specifics if we don't know what you're already doing. :) Would you be willing to share your nutrition/fitness trackers publicly (at least temporarily) to make suggestions?
