How to get 64-70g of protein in?!



Recommended Posts

I'm still in my liquid phase (past the Clear Liquids phase) and move to puréed foods in a few days. I've been drinking Isopure Protein Drinks, which contain 40g per bottle and that helps. But every time I try to add Protein powder to pudding, broth, etc. it just tastes awful and makes me feel sick. Any suggestions on easy ways to get protein in? I'm wondering if I could eat my normal broth, pudding, Jello as is and not add Protein Powder. Then get my protein through my Isopure drinks and Atkins Protein Drinks (20g per bottle)

I honestly didn't really worry too much about my Protein intake on the puree food. I got down a shake if I could, a little cottage cheese, but if I wasn't up for it I didn't push myself. I built up to my protein goal as I healed and at the one month mark when I got cleared to start the gym I was hitting it every day.

I had one shake a day while I was on puree. To be honest, most days I start with a Protein shake and I'll be six months out at the end of this month.

I like pure Protein bars, taste like a candy bar, 20g Protein, 3g sugar, but 200 calories. It's the only way I get my protein in 3 a day. 6 are in a box and they are about 7$ per box. I cannot drink my protein. The texture of Protein drinks turn my stomach.

So what is the advantage of a Protein Bar over eating, say, 2 oz of cheese? The kind I have is 16 grams of Protein for 2 oz at 160 calories and no sugar or carbs.

Hy-Vee part-skim mozzarella cheese sticks. I mispoke, it's 6 grams for 1 oz. I am 1 month and 10 days post.

Personally I can't eat cheese, it's too hard on my stomach. I'm also not tracking calories or sugars at this point of the game. I still don't eat enough to make it to even 1,000 cals a day four+ months out.
