Your doctor should give you a list of foods you may and may not eat- and a dietitian will be able to tell you exactly how much protein you should have (whether it's 1 egg/day, 2-3 servings of soy a week, etc). You should also be limiting your potassium which knocks out a number of protein sources and vegetables. Please do make sure you get information from your doctor as eating the wrong foods can worsen your kidney function!

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!
The previous poster has given you some good advice. I agree that most people don't need protein supplements and they don't help with weight loss. You're better off trying to get your protein from natural food sources instead.
If you haven't already met with a registered dietitian, ask your doctor for a referral to see one. They can create a meal plan specific to your needs.
Hope that helps,

You are best to talk with your Dr about this, and ask for a referral to a Registered Dietitian who specializes with this sort of thing, and then you will get advice based on YOUR health and YOUR needs.
As an 'aside' , even tho' a lot of people use Protein Supplements, most of them don't need it.
There is a lot said about incorporating proteins in your diet for the weight loss. I suffer from chronic kidney diseases . I am not allowed to use any protein supplements or having too much protein diet. so what are the options for conditions like this.
