I agree. Peanut butter, protein powder, and greek yogurt are my favorites. I made pancakes with vanilla protein powder drink as the liquid, 1/2 oat flour & 1/2 all purpose flour, with shredded apple and craisins mixed in. (also egg, BP & salt & coconut oil) Delicious. I should have added some cinnamon. Next time I'll also try to use some greek yogurt as a sauce with some berries and roll up the thin pancake like a blinz. I don't track fats at all. Carbs & Sugars are what I worry about. "Belly Fat Cure"

I am somewhat of a vegetarian (I do eat seafood and dairy) so getting enough protein was an issue for me. My dietitian suggested nonfat Greek yogurt, protein powder added to cereal, oatmeal, yogurt or in a shake. I use SYntrax brand as it mixes well, tastes great and has no fat and only a couple of carbs.
hello and welcome to the team Foods ,well you need to eat the recomended ammount of protein and carbs,that the spark menu gives , beans are good ,not fatty either. Lean meats, chicken breast,turkey, fish is also good and it has some fat but it is the kind of fat you need.
Well adding carbs will add to your calories. Adding protein will add somewhat to your fats depending on your protein source. Feeling full is great since that means you don't feel deprived. However you do need to get the minimum recommended protein and carbs as recommended by SP otherwise you are not getting sufficient nutrients. The result will be that you will not lose weight since your body thinks you are in the middle of a famine. Counter-intuitive but true.
Hi! I'm relatively new on spark people; second week in. After tracking my food for this time, a repeating issue was apparent. I'm not eating enough carbs or proteins. Yet; I feel that I'm eating a lot, and full after each meal. What suggestions do you have that would increase my carbs/protein but not my fats or calories?
