I mostly slept yesterday and only had the shake and the fage (60 grams protein that day)

today I felt queasy but I ate anyway.

B - coffee / protein (sipped throughout day, really) 60g protein
L - spaghetti squash with turkey italian sausage, low carb pasta sauce and parmesan cheese 15 protein
D - BBQ Chicken Salad (pre-made from Stater Bros) 15 protein
S - probably a quest bar 20 protein

If I actually finish the shake today (it's been in/out of fridge all day and I've been sipping it) and if I eat the quest bar too, I will be at 110 protein.

myyellowstang 01-02-2013 10:11 PM

Hog jawls? Is that edible?

myyellowstang 01-02-2013 10:14 PM

Todays eats, such as they are.

B - protein shake.
L - lentil soup
s - protein shake
D - pizza toppings
s - protein shake

Then I mindlessly ate cheetos and in an effort to "redeem" myself I added a protein bar.

Nausea followed.

I have a food aversion lately. It shows. I need to start eating whole nutritious food again. I just don't have the want to so I've been supplementing with a lot of protein.

It shows with my energy level and the fact that I just plain look exhausted lately.

I don't know if I can give the address here so I'll say just google dashing dish. Some of the recipes are for subscribers only, but some of them are free. The muffins are made with ingredients like pumpkin, apple sauce, greek yogurt, protein powder. I think the name is something like moist protein pumpkin muffins.

I found it. Thanks.

chewiegand 01-06-2013 08:36 AM

Good morning. Still having a hard time getting in my protein. I guess I need to have 2 protein shakes a day to get it in.

AllisonB 01-06-2013 09:05 AM

I'm having a hard time with that, too, Chewie. I have gone back to a protein drink a day, and eat greek yogurt at least one meal a day. It's hard to get it in when my portions are still so small.

The Greek Yogurt did not agree with me but I tried it my first week on pureed. Maybe I can handle it now? I used to love yogurt.

ANGELFIRE80 01-07-2013 11:08 AM

B-Atkins bar

L-Salad w/bacon bits,cheese,HB egg-caesar dressing

D-Crack slaw

S-Maybe another atkins bar (found these at Aldi..score!)

Water/ice tea to drink...Pop free again! :) Will do some cleaning/packing tonight (does that count for exercise? LOL)

Hot Tamale 01-07-2013 05:13 PM

I had really thought I posted on here...I guess I'm in la la land.

I'm trying to ride the wave of post-surgery weight loss. 2 days ago I was 184.4 - my lowest weight in about half a year. I've been having at least one proteinshake a day (ladies who don't like them, have you tried making a half shake twice instead of a full shake once? I do it that way mostly because I like them very cold and even a little lumpy - mint cookie ones anyway...). Eight oz. is easier to work on than 16 oz., in my opinion...

B: 1/2 protein shake
L: 2 eggs with a little onion and some cheese
S: greek yogurt
S: 1/2 protein shake
D: 1/2 small baked potato with sour cream, butter, and a sprinkle of cheese
S: 2 sf fudgicles
water & some 1/2 & 1/2 tea from arizona tea

I still feel like I'm eating too much. I'm working at just taking a lot less, no 2nds, and more water, less food...

Savannah 01-12-2013 01:31 PM

B- protein coffee
L- 2.5 oz salmon pouch w/ 2 Tbsp mayo
S-1 c Fage
D- atkins crustless pot pie

B protein shake
L Fage 1 cup
S shake
D chili no beans 1 cup

Hot Tamale 01-13-2013 05:19 PM

Nice job, Savannah - and thanks for the info about the pot pie. I saw the dinners but didn't buy any - crustless didn't sound at all good to me at the time...

chewiegand 01-16-2013 06:53 AM

I find the only way to get all my protein in is to have a protein shake for breakfast. It's not my favorite thing but it works. How is everyone else doing?

SINDERELLA 01-16-2013 09:27 AM

So far today:
B: Muscle Milk
S: sausage patty w cheese
32 oz Crystal light energy
Lost 48 lbs so far but starting to hit a plateau.
Going to begin counting carbs to see if it works.
Gym three times a week.

This sounds yummy! I'll have to check them out. I always modify recipes, so if I do I'll share if it turns out well. :)

Try more powder in less liquid. :) I do 1 1/2 scoops in 4-6 oz water over ice. It's 35g in a few swallows. Cottage cheese is very high protein, more so than greek yogurt. You can get 14g in 4 oz, which isn't very much at all. I take a few leafs of spinach, some diced grilled chicken (or canned chicken, or lunchmeat), some chickpeas, either some capers or banana peppers (to give it some twang) and add about 2 oz of cottage cheese instead of mayo or yogurt or anything. Tasty, low calorie and high protein!

myyellowstang 01-16-2013 11:39 AM

Today's eats:

B - Fage, frozen strawberries, splenda
L - spinach, grilled chicken, feta, cucumber, tomato
s - I'll have a protein drink - vanilla with pumpkin spice. I'm out of mint cookie and need to order some more.

I've been drinking more protein instead of eating lately. I've in my food aversion stage, it was hard to make myself eat the yogurt this morning. But I'm working on that.

Dinner will be 15 bean soup. I started the crock before I left this morning.

Same here with the breakfast shake, and I am nearly three years out.
