I have the same problem.. not only protein.. but i have to eat more calories and fat.. emoticon
so I'm totally confused.. seem to get my carbs reasonable but fat and calories?? i just got advice to drink full milk and peanuts?? I have already started eatin mixed nuts & dried fruit and sunflower seeds but still my protein, calories and fat aren't enough..
HaHahaha I'm really baffeld because i have alway's been a pretty healthy eater.. now I get advice to eat the things that through the years gone you've been adviced not to.. My dietricien alway's says eat low fat no peanuts low sugar sweets etc..
before i became a diabetic i hardly ate any sweets because i never desired them.. i was more of a savoury eater.. or ice cream..
but starting the medication i suddenly had desire to eat sweets and chocolate..
In the beginning i didnot find the advice on the tracker but saw the advised meals and were kindof confusing.. then when i did find the advice i started to try to meet it and after the 2nd week i felt better in myself and had no desire more for sweet things or even a glass of wine..
So then i realised this diet advice is to get my sugar on track as priority over the weight loss..
My faith tripled for SP from that day & I'm so happy i found SP.. I stopped going to the food dietricien more than a year ago because i saw no change.. and i have learnt more here in 4 weeks than 3 years by her..
I'm confused about peants and full milk and yogurt but .. I'll give it a try.. gradually haha..

success to you both and be good to hear how you go...
I'm off to clean the house big job today... emoticon

Not getting enough protein seems to be my ongoing problem. It's really good to see the charts and feedback for the nutrituion and thinking that the protein I'm eating is always enough, then when I track it, I realize I still have to add more.

I've learned that hard work will pay off in the end even if it takes longer than you think. emoticon

I've also learned to not make comparisons. We are all different. Just do the best I can not someone else's best.

I've learned that I can do this. Last week I was really doubting myself thinking that the first two weeks were a fluke, but I stuck with it: exercizing even when my heart wasn't into it, and tracking every bite even when they were things I didn't want to 'fess up to eating. This week I know I can keep it up.

I've learned that the only way I'm accountable to myself and to be truthful is that I must track everything I eat, including the little snitches of food here and there. And I need to do the exercise everyday or I can just talk myself out of it too easily.
