Consider 1% cottage cheese too. It's high in protein and you can add cinnamon and Stevia to taste and it makes it pretty tasty.

Milled Flax seeds, milled Hemp, pure peanut butter (without Palm Oil) or Almonds. I make a great smoothie with Unsweetened Soya Milk (you don't taste it in a fruit smoothie), Greek yogurt, bananas (or whatever you like)frozen raspberries and milled seeds. I eat 24 almonds over the day as a snack. These foods are also packed with all the good fats and Flax seeds in particular seem to make your metabolism much more effective. I take flax seeds twice a day and they've helped me to lose weight.

Canadian bacon, greek yogurt, eggs and beef jerky have been huge in helping get my protein up.

nuts are great too. but definately not a primary protein source Wink

by the way. do you guys preffer snacking on nuts to get some healthy fats and protein in, or all natural peanut/almond butter? is there a big difference, or not really?

I prefer to snack on nuts that I can weigh out myself, instead of butters. I can eat too much butters without noticing.

Roast or baked meat, poultry, and fish. Cook up enough for several days and use it as you need it.

What they said. I do, however, suggest that you learn to love your veggies and learn to cook. Smile These two things are VERY important if you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle for the rest of your life. Just sayin'...

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

Pumpkin seeds are especially high in protein, low in calories and fat. Sunflower seeds have protein & almonds are particularly high in protein. Nuts are an excellent source of gas-free protein, as well as chicken, turkey, beans, peas, fish, cottage cheese, and peanut butter, parm cheese, romano cheese, Pepitas
which are already shelled pumpkin seeds...1 ounce..8grams of protein.

Quinoa and kasha which are extremely high in protein...low fat dairy like Daisy Cottage cheese, Fage 0% Plain Greeek Yogurt and add berries to sweeten.

Turkey bacon and egg whites, low fat cheese, tomato and lettuce, flaxseeds, chia seeds, lean chicken baked or grilled, turkey,beef jerky pistachios, lamb,, lentils, lobster, crab and tuna too

3 slices of deli roast beef aorund 150 calories on toasted rye bread with mustard and horseradish.

Always keep "All Whites" egg whites on hand...you can have a full cup scrambled with some green peppers and diced onions for less than 125 calories and has protein.

Barley has soluble and insoluble fiber and has more fiber than oatmeal and is good protein, but oatmeal is good protein too! A pork loin chop has protein,

Coffee increases Blood Sugar?
I would drink two cups of coffee before 4 pm, but I also added ice, so they were not boldly strong. Watered down coffee.
