Stevie, I'll take any info...It's nice to have something to break the monotony and still get in a good amount of protein. Currently I'm noticing I'm having issues with my Potassium intake (causes leg and foot cramps) at least based on what is being tracked on here. Any ideas on this one also? I'm getting a little tired of bananas. emoticon emoticon

HISARTIST,

Let me know if you would like more ideas, because I went through my information on meal plans and found some from The Firm as well as more from Billy Blanks!

WhenI'm lifting hard (or basically any day but the last three since I've been sick) I have a protein pancake in the a.m. for breakfast. It consists of 1/2 cup of oatmeal, two or three egg whites, some sort of fruit (I use light fruit yogurt), and a scoop or protein powder. You mix it all together and then cook it like a pancake. I also like to top it with peanut butter...adds a few calories, but it is good fat and enhances the taste. Altogether it is between 400 and 600 calories, which may be a bit high for you, but it keeps me full until my next snack (sometimes until lunch), and It has about 55g of protein. I also use this before my runs and races and it seems to give me more energy than my other before-race meals did.

The only way I've been able to stay in my calorie range and get the required protein is through protein drinks. I luv Muscle Milk and Designer Whey but you have to mix them with water to really keep the calories down or skim milk if your daily calorie amount allows.

Kelley,

I hear what you are saying. I actually ate about 93 grams of protein today and stayed within my calorie intake. I just upped my protein portions and decreased my carb intake. I still get carbs, but a smaller amount. Also, I looked at Billy Blanks meal starter from his Amped series. The recommended calorie intake was 1400 with very little carbs. However, I workout a lot and I need the carbs as well as the protein. So, I try to stick to his protein amount, while at the same time give myself more carbs than he recommended.

For example, here's one of his suggestions:

Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs with 1-oz. of lowfat cheddar; 2 slices of turkey bacon; 1/2 of a grapefruit

A.M. Snack: 7 walnut halves; 1/2 cup of 2% cottage cheese

Lunch: 5-oz. grilled shrimp; 2 cups mixed green salad with 2 Tsp. lite dressing or 1 Tsp. of regular dressing

P.M. Snack: 3 oz. sliced white meat grilled chicken breast with 2 Tsp. lite dressing for dipping

Dinner: 5-oz. hamburger (grilled or baked); 1-1/2 cups mixed greens with 2 Tsp. lite dressing or 1 Tsp. of regular dressing; 1 small baked sweet potato with 2 Tsp. lite sour cream

Calories: 1400
Protein: 148 grams
Fiber: 10 grams
Carb: 45 grams
Fat: 68 grams

So, I increase the number of carbs, because 45 grams is too low for me, but I strive for the protein as best I can. Plus I have my calorie range is 1557-1960, so I can add some carbs to my diet.

I hope this helps!

Stevie

I need help!

I am just getting started. My goal weight is 120. I am vegetarian and I do love dairy and like eggs and things like Morningstar Farms and such.

Problem is, I am on a VERY limited budget. I only have about $175 for ALL my groceries.

I am currently getting about 100 grams of protein without really working at it. I know I need to up that, but how can I do that on my budget? I can't afford supplements like the powder.

Any suggestions?

Could be lots of things. If your lifting harder than before, it could be that your muscles are retaining water in the healing process. If its hormones...well it could also be water. If you've increased your protein, depending on what you are eating, you may have accidentally increased your sodium, which will cause you to retain water. I gained four punds in two days once because I was eating way too much salt. I cut back on the salt and the four pounds came off in a day. Try watching the sodium intake.

Okay - I realized I was getting about 1/2 the amount of protein I should be getting, so I've added and increased to at least 1 gram per lb of body weight. I am working out a lot but am know up to 118.9 this morning (was 115.4 last week). Could this be due to increased protein over the last week and hard workouts. Or am I just a fat pig? I'm sure hormones play a role in there somewhere too, but it's really frustrating!

I usually start my morning out with a ittle "protein pancake". It's a combination of oatmeal, eggwhites, protein powder and fruit. I modified it a bit and use a little less oatmeal and egg and changed the fruit to yogurt, but it's pretty good. I notice that when I don't eat it and just have a bowl of cereal or plain oatmeal that I'm hungry about an hour later. Also starting off with this "pancake" has helped me get my protein intake up. I'm not to the 1g/lb yet, but I'm definitely a lot closer.

BSN has a great line of protein powder called Lean Dessert Protein, I have only tried the chocolate fudge because I don't think cinnamon swirl sounds good to me..lol.
I know GNC carries it or if you read Oxygen, they have tons of ads in there for the BSN line.

I am not big on eating a lot of meat and I don't eat dairy because my body cannot tolerate it so the soy protein works well for me. I have been looking into the different ones must read a little more to make sure I am buying the right one. I like to put it in my oatmeal in the morning. I have one I am using but know there are better ones out there.

There is am article in the April 08 issue of Oxygen magazine that supports whey protein. It digests quickly, which gets it to your hungry muscles faster than any other form of protein, it boosts muscle growth, and it is considered a complete protein. Hope this helps!

Just wondering if anyone has any information on Egg White Protein Powder. I'm pretty sure the Whey is digested faster than the soy so it's good after working out but I haven't seen anything on the Egg Whites. Anybody? Thanks. Sue

I found a protein powder from Jay Robb. I tried the strawberry and thought it was super yummy, and that was the first time I had ever tried protein powders. It has 24 g. of protein per serving, and no sugars, artifial sweeteners, or molitol! They use stevia. It is also low in cholesterol (some can get pretty high). It is also rBGH free(growth hormone used in cows), that is very important to me. The individual packets are actually on sale right now for 1.25 if you want to try a sample. Better than paying $20-$40 for a container and then not like it!

Amy, I must echo the sentiments of other posters in that you absolutely, positively, must eat something before working out. Ideally, that should be something with both protein, and complex carbs. Without the proper fuel, your body will not burn fat, but instead use muscle as fuel...very counterproductive. The oatmeal would be a good option and it won't take too long either. I usually have oatmeal with 3 berry mix(strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)and 2 tablespoons of either fat free cottage cheese, or plain yogurt mixed in(I use water to make the oatmeal).

Any suggestions for someone who doesn't eat meat and doesn't really want to go with protein shakes? I'm getting bored with peanut butter and nuts! Does soy based meatless food such as Boca-Chicken work as well? Sorry if this is a repeat question!!

L2BF, you will have a lot more energy for your workouts with something for your body to burn for energy. There is a lot of good information about where your body gets energy from when exercising.. Look in the preworkout post in the beginning of this thread for some interesting reading. Or go to bodybuilding.com and read some of the posted articles. You sound very dedicated to working out and you deserve to get the best results from your hard work.. JJ

I think I am going to try that! I ate a packet of Kashi oatmeal this morning at 5:00 and felt more energy during my workout. It's only 25 carbs, but has 7g of fiber and 10g protein.

If you have a shaker bottle, you can mix protein powder with just milk or water, and drink it on the way to the gym. That wouldn't take much time to prepare.

Wow after reading all of this I realize I am not being smart! I go to the gym at 5:30 4 mornings out of the week. I don't eat a pre-workout meal! Ek! I eat breakfast around 7-7:30...usually fruit, high fiber cereal or oatmeal, fage yogurt (high protein) and flaxseed. Should I try drinking a protein shake pre-workout? I don't have a lot of time in the morning and I don't want to get up much earlier than I already do.

Hi. I just wanted to know if it was still healthy to eat meat for the protein? I eat Deer Meat which is a really lean meat. I was anemic last year for a period of a few months and I just took iron pills. So I just try to eat iron rich foods. But would the protein shakes be good for that kind of stuff too? Thank You.

When I'm lagging on my protein intake, I love mixing chocolate protein powder (Isobolic Nutrabolic) with Trader Joe's Greek Style Nonfat (Plain) Yogurt. The yogurt is the consistency of sour cream with very few sugars (if any) in it, and has 20g of protein in a 1 cup serving for only 100 calories. Mixing in only 1 scoop of the protein powder (for 110 more calories & 22.5g of protein) makes it taste like chocolate pudding. Really yummy. Sometimes I add (defrosted) frozen fruit. Dark Sweet Cherries are REALLY good in this combo!

Hi, just found this thread, and it's a great topic. I'm well aware of the 1g protein/per lb body weight, but I have a hard time getting close to this and stay within my 1300-1500 cal range. I'm not really into "drinking" my calories either, any suggestions about other options?

Matrix 5.0 Orange Creme :

is THE BEST tasting protein supplement I've ever had. I bought it from bodybuilding.com after reading rave reviews about it on another site. I'm so tired of Chocolate and vanilla I could puke! This taste like non-acidic orange juice with no pulp! No clumps, and it's great in Yoplait Light Orange Cremecicle Yogurt too!

I tried a new protein shake I picked up at the gym after my workout. After reading SFJ's blog, I started looking for a lower carb protein drink or bar. BTW Shelly, you look AMAZING!!! I'll comment on you blog directly but OMGoodness you are my HERO!!!!

Anyway, I found this stuff called LEAN BODY ...it is a huge 17 oz shake with 40 grams of protein, 9 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber and 9 grams of fat for 260 calories!!!

I drank it at 5:45--it is now 9:00 and I am still full and have not had dinner or my last snack!!!

Here is a couple of links ..if anyone sees anything wrong with this product that I am missing, please point it out as I am still new to all this!!!

You know it isn't a protein shake but something better.. Muscle Milk has this pudding that is fantastic tasting and I keep in in my desk at work for a quick snacker..

There are a lot of different thoughts on protein intake, i normally shoot for 1g - 1.5g per pound of lean body mass.

Readinglady - ready made will cost a significant amount more, but muscle milk and EAS make good products and can be purchased at Costco (as well as other places) Protein in and of itself won't necessarily "boost weightloss" but I think will help like was mentioned earlier have better macros for the day, so the source of calories will be better. Another idea is to make a couple of servings in the morning in a blender and take it with you - my default is frozen fruit, plain yogurt, 1 serving protein powder, and 1/4 c. dry oats.

Are you interested in ready made from the store or making them yourself.. My son makes a batch and brings them along with him, he just shakes them up because they separate and voila.. Purchased.. I had one recently by naked smoothie has one with no added sugar but has plenty of natural.. It isn't bad tasting..

Hi ladies, I am interested in purchasing protein shakes. So far I came across 2, designer whey protein and aria protein shake for women. Do you have any good suggestions.

Thanks

I just looked this up last night. The RDA is .8 per pound of body weight. However, if you are exercising a lot/lifting a lot, you should increase that to 1.2 to 1.8 per pound of body weight. As the previous poster stated (sorry, I'm brand new and can't remember names yet! lol), I go with 1.5 per pound of body weight.

ONE MORE REP! :)

I don't know about more but they do recommend about 1.5 grams for every lb of bodyweight... Hope that helps..JJ

This link is a thread from our team dated Sept 07 but thought it might spark a memory or two maybe even conversation. sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_message

I started supplementing with protein since November and have been happy with the taste and how it benefits my percentages on my nutrition calc. Also, when in vitamin world I noticed that Muscle Milk has a protein pudding with 160 cal per 1cup and 20 grams of protein 6g fat and 2g carb. It tastes great and makes for a nifty little chocolate fix or snack when needed...
Regarding the taste of protein, which for me has been a challenge, I found Natures Way Isopure and there is no bad taste at all and can be added to other foods without changing the flavor of the orginal food item.. Nice..
