No prob! It's a slow process and we can always learn something! I definitely learned you need to change your diet slowly because I changed mine drastically when I started to diet almost a year ago and my stomach is still not right. I am seeing a gastro doc now to try and figure it out.. so just try new things slowly. But the way I work nut butters into my diet is almond butter on a carmel rice cake for breakfast and I like Reeses so instead I have a small spoon of peanut butter with a few chocolate chips on it for dessert sometimes.. that way it's not a ton on a sandwich, but a nice treat! And if you eat yogurt, you can try greek yogurt - it has close to 10 g of protien/serving.. I think it's an aquired taste, but worth a try! Just try something new each week and before you know it, you will be eating more protien! :) 2612 days ago
I saw your comment on a post about not getting enough protien.. are you vegan or vegetarian? If you are vegetarian, try eating more cottage cheese, yogurt, nuts & nut butters, and beans (all great snacks or additions to meals).. also Kashi Go Lean ceral has a ton of protien and other vitamins! One other idea is to add a vanilla protien powder to a fruit smoothie with vanilla soy milk added as well! I actually think it's tasty! My mom is vegetarian and was getting more protien than I was, so I have learned a lot from her! Protien is just so important in repairing your muscles after a workout.. so you won't be as sore. I think it gives me more energy too. Hope this helps you in your weight loss journey! Good luck!
