Getting in enough protein



Recommended Posts

How do you get in enough Protein for the day when you can only eat 1/4-1/2 cup at a time?

I use Protein powder with skim milk - the skim milk adds more protein. High protein yoghurt. eggs. Cottage cheese. I make a minced chicken plus Beans chilli mix. Quiches. Lentil Soup. Lupin soup mix. Savoury mince. meat loaf

I dont enjoy cooking so do use products that allow me to easily consume protein plus veges and other nutrition.

My surgeon told me not to worry too much at first but to really work at it once I was eating solid foods. I struggled with Protein powders & shakes so found some high protein yogurts & could get in up to 30g if I sipped on a drink version throughout the day. I cut it with a small amount of 100% fruit no added sugar juice -about 50mls- as it was a little thick (also added silica & collagen). Some days I’d only eat meat for lunch & dinner to get my protein in especially in the first couple of months. I had an egg for Breakfast most mornings. Remember eat your protein first then some vegetables if you can.

Thanks. I’m managing to get in 1.8 Litres of Fluid a day and 60-70g of Protein a day at the moment. I’m still on fluids for another week (then soft diet) so getting in my protein via Protein Shakes that I make using flavoured Protein Powder. I think next week I’ll substitute one meal at a time with all of your suggestions.
