I just started Protein Power, a plan I think I can live with since I'm only looking to drop 10-15 lbs or maybe less if you consider that I am doing weight training while loosing fat. I've got 55 grams of carbs a day to work with, which seems tolerable to me. The thing is, I think I might be consuming too much fat in my attemp to get all my protien in. I need to have about 33 grams of protein at each meal and I have always eaten breakfast at the office, which has a delivery of mostly bread stuff each day but I am allowed to order two hard boiled eggs.Thats only 14 grams of protein tho and I have been trying to get the extra protein by keeping a container of chicken salad or tuna salad in the fridge and grabing a mouthful here and there. I allow myself a small apple because I have always had an apple at breakfast and it's only 15 carbs, which is what is suggested for each meal. Lunch is low fat as I usually have grilled chicken over a salad or with a veggie. I can't make an omlet for myself every morning (I guess my budget is used to not paying for breakfast everyday since my office stocks its kitchen although with mostly junk.) so what else is fast that I can get extra protein with? I've been snacking on nuts a little too but I know that 1 oz. has about 5 carbs so I limit those. PS, has anyone found it hard to give up snacking out of habit because I'm not finding myself to be that hungry between meals although a little lightheaded at times and just looking for something to put in my mouth. I love water and I drink about 5 poland spring pints a day so I think I'm ok there.
Thanks, this is my 3rd day and I think I'm doing ok but the not paying attention to calories thing is bothersome although I have to feel extremely proud that I have not had any grains or breads or chocolate or soda and I feel pretty good not having that ongoing sugar battle these past few days.
