Hello everyone, I am looking for a high in protien, low in calories snack that I can take to work with me. Does anyone out there have any suggestions?

Hardboiled eggs are a great option.

If you want to reduce your calories even more, you can pop the yolk out and stuff it with a bit of salsa, but, I like the yolk too much. Smile

dry roasted edamame. one serving is 130 calories, 10g carbs(8g fiber),14g of protein, 4 grams of fat (0.5 saturated) and 150mg of sodium. The serving size is quite substantial and always fills me up. it is near the jars of nuts in my grocery store.

A serving of nuts: almonds, dry roasted edamame (super yummy), cashews, pistachios, peanuts, etc & a string cheese. Always my fav snack & quite filling.

Greek yogurt is a wonderful low calorie and very high protein food if you have access to a fridge.

Greek yogurt is also one of my newfound favorites ... just beware the flavored ones! I'm always looking for yogurt that has more protein in it than carbs (and the carbs always come from the sweetening they add). The plain versions will have the higher protein-to-carb (and calorie) ratio. If I am really craving the sweetness, I will add a tbsp of raw honey to plain yogurt, OR combine a plain cup of yogurt with a flavored one, so that the protein outweighs the carbs. Wink

Another good trick is a spoonful of sugar free pudding mix. 35 calories and you can make it just about any flavor. Wink

Also throwing some love in for greek yogurt - if you stick to the nonfat varieties it's pretty healthy (yes, the flavored ones have sugar but nothing more than any flavored yogurt really) and unlike normal yogurt it actually can fill you up.

Oh, and the unflavored makes a GREAT substitute for sour cream when cooking. Greek yogurt is really the bomb

I put sugar free cheesecake jello mix into mine and then top it with all fruit spread (another 30 calories). 1 tbsp of pudding mix is 25 calories.

Canned tuna (in water). It might sound like a meal, but it actually has less calories than most protein bars.

Changing the RDI model to more than 1 lb a week
3500 calories = 1 pound of fat. If you take your RDI and come in 500 calories under it, you'll hit 2 pounds a week.
