So, I'm in need of some suggestions. I'm supposed to be having 1100-1200 calories and 60-80 grams of protein per day. My NP told me to cut out bread, pasta, and rice and just eat protein rich foods and veggies and sometimes fruits. I've been eating things like chicken, lean lunch meat, green beans, protein shakes, and for a snack, string cheese. My problem is that I'm getting enough protein from 3 meals and a string cheese, but everything's so low cal that I'm not getting enough calories. Today, for example, I had a protein shake w/ canned pumpkin added (203 cal, 35 protein), lunch was 4 oz canned chicken, 2 tbsp bbq sauce and 3/4 c green beans sauteed in 1 tsp olive oil (235cal, 21 protein), and dinner was 2 things of string cheese (160 cal, 12 protein) since I had class. That's a total of 598 calories and 68 grams of protein. It's a problem, because I'm sustained on the meals that I ate. I don't want to eat more calories just for the sake of eating more calories, but I know that I have to do something so my body doesn't think it's starving. So, my question to you is, what tips do you have to add extra calories to food without adding bread, rice, or pasta? I also am not much of a condiment person...won't do mayo or sour cream. Any advice would be appreciated. Hope everyone had a great weekend, and here's to a good week ahead.
