Default silly question

Okay.. now this is a silly question.
My protein is very low in my diet.. about 20% of my calories..

If I want to increase this how can I get more protein in my diet?
right now it comes mostly from:
boneless skinless chicken breast
ground beef
low carb bread
some soups
egg whites

any ideas?

I've been counting calories for 2 months.. not losing any weight plus going to the gym for 3-4 times a week.

should I be a low carber???

50% of my diet..some days more.. comes from carbs!

next weight goal:

You can drink protein powder smoothies, although there are brands that are yucky! Peanut butter has protein, so does red meat. That's probably not fitting in a low fat plan, huh? Hope you find some answers!

S/C/G: 300/too much/155


How about salmon or tuna with a bit of protein powder tossed in? or cottage cheese. I never liked cottage cheese before, actually detested it, but if you add a bit of splenda, cinnamon and vanilla to it, its actually delicious. or splenda and strawberries or splenda and cocoa?!! YUMMY!!

Make enough meat for supper, to have left over for lunch the next day. Try eating whole eggs instead of just the whites. They will fill you up for longer.

Lower fat cheese will give you a great protein snack. Broccoli has protein too!

Try eating your higher carb foods in the am, giving your body time to burn them off.

You know your always more than welcome to jump into the lowcarb daily!! There are alot of ladies that will be able to help you make the change to lc if thats what you want to try
