Need more protein
I'm finding it hard to get enough protein in my diet. I eat fairly healthy - lots of veggies, some whole grains, lean meats, etc. I try to put protein in every meal - quinoa, cottage cheese, fish, turkey, chicken, but need more to balance out the carbs. I try to put protein in every meal - quinoa, cottage cheese, fish, turkey, chicken, eggs, and so on and it just doesn't seem to be enough. Any suggestions - should I start doing a protein supplement in the mornings?by: shannon
Great question! A morning protein shake is a great way to get around 20 - 25 grams more protein per day. What is your goal? Are you looking to gain muscle and lose fat? If so, you might want to add the morning protein shake and stop eating grains for a few weeks to see how your body adjusts.
How do you know you are not getting enough protein? Sounds like you are getting a good amount. What are you using to determine your protein needs?
