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 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.

Blessings,
Ruthie

sometimes you are just short one or two carbs and it will tell you that....

I really struggle to get my protein in! I think a lot of protein packing things I like are also full of fat :( I really need to get on it but it seems overwhelming!

I don't eat much in the way of animal protein, so I'm always coming up short in the protein department. Some things that are getting me closer to the ideal are:

Greek yogurt
Pumpkin Seeds
2.6 oz. Tuna pouch as a snack
lentil stews / soups

...and having a soy or fish based entree with steamed veggies for dinner.

Fruits are a great source of carbs, and fish gives you tons of protein. I had one serving of talapia for dinner last night and raked in 41 grams of protein!!

Thanks for the advice. Today is the first day I hit the minimum on my carbs AND my protein! Not surprisingly, I feel more energetic than I have in a while emoticon

If you want to find out more, you can go on the message boards that are answered by experts, too. Carb and Protein balance can be very individual.

If you like them, peanuts or peanut butter are high in protein and carbs plus they are a healthy source of fat

Cheers,

emoticon hello and welcome to the team emoticon
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.

Keep all the nutrients up.

Cheers,
Catherine

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?
