I'm also having the same problem. On the days I do meet the protein goals, I'm usually also high in either calories or fat. I am usually eating the suggested number of servings of meat and dairy, but I still need to find more protein without adding calories.

Hi:

My favorite way of increasing my protein intake is making a delicious smoothie using NutriBiotic rice protein vanilla powder. (I'm vegan).
One tablespoon of this has 12 grams of protein & 60 calories. I included a link so you can check it out.

I usually put 2 TBSP's and one cup (or a little more) of non-dairy milk in the blender along with a frozen banana (or any frozen fruit). I like to add vanilla extract (100% pure) along with 1/2 +teaspoon cardamom spice.
If I choose to use soy milk, 8 ounces adds 7 additional grams of protein. The soy milk makes a creemier smoothie emoticon

Enjoy the day!

That is true. Plus they don't have any carbs. But they sure don't taste as good! emoticon

Fish, chicken and eggs are an easy way to add protein

Rather than feeling overwhelmed by making lots of changes in my life I am changing just one - my attitude

the protein is super important. It helps maintain your muschle mass. Atkins bars are a good source for a snack and some have 10gr of protein.

One thing I do is add whey protein powder to my fruit smoothie. It gives me 18 grams of protein for 100 calories, (2 grams of fat, 3 grams carbs)!
I use the brand "Designer Whey" and find it is satisfying and because the protein comes in several different forms, some break down slower than others so it carries me through to the next meal.

Here's one of my breakfast recipes using the chocolate flavored one:

On a daily basis Im meeting my goals for calories, fat, and carbs.... but have been consistantly low on protein. When I do reach the goal it's usually just by a point or two.

Any recommendations for increasing my protein intake on a daily basis? Feel that if I can increase the protein I may be able to gain some more energy through out the day.
