Even at 10 months out I couldn't get in enough Protein without my protein smoothie because I can eat so little. Knowing I'm getting 30-40g protein plus a bonus 24-32oz of fluids allows me to eat a healthy balance of other foods including fruits and veggies and whole grains. Otherwise I would be eating protein for every meal and snack just to get enough and I'd be too full for anything else. And that is neither fun nor healthy.

Keep some shakes or mix on hand for bad days. The rest you can figure out mathmatically.

Breakfast: 15 grams: 2 scrambled eggs with 1 tbs shredded cheddar.

Snack: 8 grams: chocolate milk (1 cup milk w/ sugar-free chocloate Syrup

Lunch: 15 grams: 2 ounces grilled chicken on small green salad

Snack: 10 grams: 1ounce of deli turkey rolled in endive leaf with 1/2 ounce swiss

Dinner: 15 grams: 2 ounces baked fish with steamed veggies

Snack: 8 grams: 1 cup of milk

So, that is just an example to divide out your day with three meals and three Snacks. This example is 71 grams of Protein and around 800 - 900 calories.

You must check out her recipes she's has been around since 2006.. Eggface is amazing.. And till this day she has maintained her weight.. She is such an inspiration..

My requirement is 75g per day and I'm not getting it without supplements. I simply can't eat enough, or I'd literally LIVE on grilled chicken, which I refuse to do. I've had a lifetime of grilled chicken! So, I dump a scoop of chocolate whey in my coffee every morning. If, come afternoon, I'm a bit light on Protein toward my 75g goal, (typical), I'll have 1/2 or 1 PowerCrunch protein "cookie". They have 14g and if you freeze them, taste like a frozen Thin Mint cookie. If I'm really low, (not typical), I'll go for the Quest bar. I also use other protein enhanced foods to help; mung bean Pasta, P28 protein bread and spread.

I do what @@bikrchk does. A scoop of vanilla body fortress in my morning coffee. Gets me 30 grams without taking up too many calories. So today I had my coffee, a Greek yogurt as a snack and a weight watchers frozen meal with 18 grams of Protein for lunch. So I had my minimum of 60 grams in by lunch. dinner will add some more Protein, I'm sure. Without that, I'm sure getting in 60 grams would be much harder.

My Dr told me that I would be eating Protein shakes and smoothies the rest of my life!

So, I went to Amazon website and bought five super healthy shake and smoothy recipe books for a dollar each plus shipping (about four dollars per book!) I bought a Nutri-bullet. I went to the local organic food store and bought whey Protein, B-12 sublingual drops without alcohol. I , fresh berries and spinach. I am armed and ready! I plan on making Protein Shakes with berries and spinach for the entire family. :)

I will let you know how it goes. The recipes look really appealing!

My forever plan still has Protein supplements listed on it. There is no way I could eat all the Protein I need. I can eat 2-3 bites of chicken and I'm done! Can't eat anything else. Snacks I try to eat yogurt or deli meat and cheese, but like @@Kindle I just can't eat enough.

My nut and doctor told me to try Isopure since I can't drink the powders anymore. It seems to be helping since they are like Water. I got the black tea flavor and love it

Neither my surgeon or NUT said I couldn't have Protein Shakes. I will be on them for the rest of my life. I know a woman who is 3 years post op & she has 1 shake a day & sometimes a Protein Bar. I have found that without the Protein Shake I will be short on my 60 - 80 grams of Protein per day. I use Syntrax Natura, Unjury & Quest Bars. I mix my protein powders with unsweetened Silk soy milk. I can't stand mixing with Water. I also eat string cheese for Snacks when I'm hungry. I also eat 2% cottage cheese, tuna (packed in water) & canned chicken. You can do it if you keep track of what you eat by either MyFitnessPal or a food journal. Good Luck with your journey.

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
