Focusing on Protein!!!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Yep, I've been doing some reading regarding sugar sensitivities and it talks about protein. Yes, I know protein is crucial but I have honestly had issues getting 'enough' on a regular basis. So this week my focus has been on protein. Well this besides getting back into my 3:30 a.m. routine on the treadmill.

I just logged today's food and this morning before I got ont he treadmill I had a greek yogurt and a banana so 15 grams there. After I made myself a 2-egg white omelet, with a slice of low fat cheese, 3 slices of low cal bacon on a wheat muffin. My total for breakfast was 39 grams. Whoo hoo!! Great improvement.

Lunch was good too with salad with some chicken breast for a total of 28 grams. I have had a couple of snacks and made an additional 13 so I'm feeling satisfied and good so far. Now to get a healthy dinner after visiting Ava for an hour and I'd like to get out and walk. 55 degrees and sunshine, gotta move!!! Hoping for 20k today and I'm over 15k now. Very doable.

Hope you all had a great day!!!

    Protein, yes, this is an ongoing battle for me as well. I don't eat much meat and often don't get enough. This will be my focus during April. I'll make it a streak. Thanks for the reminder.

    Great day with the meals. I am trying to get more protein also. Keeps me feeling full longer.

    I just figured out that Greek yogurt has a lot more protein than regular so I'm more willing to spend the extra $ for it.
    Good job, Louise.
    I think you're on the right track with more protein. I'm working on this, too.

    Great job! I have always found that protein stays with me a lot longer than carbs. A breakfast like yours is a great one!

    I have discovered that seeds are another good source of protein in addition to Omega 3's. I put hemp seeds on my oatmeal this morning and that alone added 11 g of protein!

    That is so great!!! I'm going to need to get more protein at breakfast. Lunch is OK and supper is OK so I'll have to concentrate on that. You are doing so great with your steps. I've got only 12K so far but I'm going out again soon. Keep up the good work!!!
