Getting in your protein grams



Recommended Posts

I struggled too cause I wasn’t hungry but I just kept working at it. I didn’t enjoy Protein Shakes or powder so that didn’t help. Was easier when I got to solid foods & as I could eat a little more. My surgeon was fine with me not meeting the goals to begin with but that was his position on it.

I eat Chomps as a snack...they are grass fed beef/turkey/venison sticks. They have 90 calories and 9 grams of Protein. About an ounce and a half. I also add collagen powder to my coffee (9 grams of protein, plus good for skin and hair) and 1/4 of a Protein Shake, usually caramel Premier Protein or Fairlife vanilla (approximately 7.5 grams of protein). Throw in a Greek yogurt and you are almost there!

It's a challenge! My goal is 60 grams of Protein per day, and I still don't always get that much. I usually need to drink half a Protein Shake or some protein hot chocolate to get to 60 grams in a day. I also mix Protein Powder into anything I can. My go-to Breakfast is half a thing of Greek yogurt with half a scoop of protein powder (vanilla yogurt with birthday cake protein powder is my favorite), for 18 grams of protein. I mix unflavored protein powder with Soups or refried Beans, and cinnamon roll protein powder with protein oatmeal. Not sure if you're allowed to have crunchy things yet, but I love Quest protein chips. They have 18-20 grams of protein per bag. I make taco bites with them (1/3 bag of protein chips, chicken, salsa, lettuce, Tomato, plain Greek yogurt).

I typically have a Protein Shake for Breakfast to make sure I hit my goals. It is difficult for me to eat enough dense Protein foods in one day to make goal. I also have Protein Bars in case I need a quick 20-ish grams on the go.

Two Protein Shakes alone would have 50 g of Protein. So that's most of it right there.
