I took a look at your nutrition tracker. It looks like the days when you are eating within your 1200-1550 calorie range, you are easily meeting your protein intake needs.

The days you are low in calorie intake, you are then low on protein. It is difficult to meet overall nutrient needs on 500-700 calories.

Be sure to include foods in your diet to meet your calorie range---being too low can be dangerous. This can help boost your protein too with your food selections.

Since you need to watch your sugar intake, if you need a supplement---perhaps use an unflavored type like Beneprotein---this can easily be added to soups, casseroles, smoothies, etc. Another way to inexpensively boost protein intake is with nonfat dry milk powder.

I did a search and saw that this topic existed, but it was from well over a year ago. Any input as to favorite protein powders. I do need to watch my cholesterol and sugar, but my protein levels are always too low. Thanks!!!
