In my humble opinion, the "requirements" for protein are too high. I find that as long as I have 6+ grams of protein with each meal and a few grams with each snack I stay satiated and have energy.

Too much protein can lead to kidney problems. emoticon

You are worth it!

Welcome to the team Stephanie,

I struggled with it when I first started as well. Now I just build my meals around a source of protein and add more through out the day as needed. I add nuts to my oatmeal, add beans or nuts to my salad, and keep bags or raw almonds in my desk at work for snacks.

Hi there! It's my second day on SP, and I'm still trying to navigate. This team sounds right up my alley! I used to be a vegetarian, and then introduced meat back into my diet several years back. I still don't eat meat very often (maybe once or twice/week). I find one of the hardest things (at least with two days of meal tracking so far) is that I am not even meeting my minimum protein intake for the day. Does anyone else struggle with this? Nice to meet you all!

Stephanie
