Ask your Dr. what he would recommend. The dietitan I am working with said as adults we do not need the high amounts of protein that we normally eat and I must admit I do feel better. Cutting down on protein helps with lowering the carbs, fat, etc.

Hi Phyllis,

Funny - for me, I would have to increase my protein to get to 60 g. When I read your post on this, I thought you were trying to increase your grams of protein.
