and i was thinking i don't like protein so much because it means fish and beef and chicken!!!! i love the protein sources you mentioned Cassie, now, thinking of protein does not make me sick, thanks to you Cassie.
and Chris, i know a good protein powder that has no carbs in it, it's by gold standard and is 100% egg white but i have the vanila custard flaour and it tastes deliciuos!!!! i love the smoothies i make with it! give it a try and see how you like it. i think they have it in chocolate flavour as well!

i have found a great tasting protein powder called Protein Complete 40. the chocolate tastes like chocolate cake batter. it has 40 grams of protein per serving and only 203 calories.

Thanks all for the protein powder advice. I ended up at GNC (yeah I know, over priced) and found some "tasteless" powder called "any whey". It has 70 calories, 17 grams of protein and 1 gram of carbs per serving.

Yeah, it was, shall we say "interesting"? I added it to my morning smoothie of plain low fat yogurt, fresh strawberries and soy milk and I think I'll cut it in 1/2 tomorrow cause I thought I was going to throw up I felt so overly full afterward.

It's not bad, just not, well, yummy.

I can't do "sweet" first thing in the morning at all, makes me sick! So that's why I was looking for flavorless. My unsweetened shake is plenty sweet!

@farah,

That's a good sign! It means your body is adapting to needing less carbs. Hopefully this will be followed by a reduction in appetite so you won't feel a need to be eating all the time (a big problem for me when I followed a high-carb, low-fat diet).

hi Nik,
the funny thing is, on fitday, i'm eating a lot more than i used to. seems like i was starving myself, the first few days, my calorie count was on average about 700, max 900 and about 85% of it from carbs. and i felt so weak and tired, and funny enough i didn't even know the reason
but i found out i should eat more so my metabolism starts working and i have tried to cut down on carb and have more protein. i just hope i don't gain more weight in the meantime my body's adjusting.

Good luck Montana, I have been on and off every diet known to man . Eat this not that... Now I am also trying to look at nutrition and ratio's, I just started with fitday, and am very surprised at my fat intake , I feel like I will learn alot from the nutritional breakdown charts . Strength in knowledge right?
I am trying to loose the mind set of dieting. I want to eat for health and of course enjoyment. I have come to conclusion that I am over weight because food is my crutch(drug of choice). So what am I using food to hide from? Thats my journey.
I started out need to loose 106 pounds, a little more would be ok to. That is magic number to get to a considered healthy BMI. I am down 20 pounds, but it has been a long journy to get here. Two years been down a liitle more back up to starting weight, as I have said tried several things looking for a quick fix.They dont exist so now trying to face my feelings, and start new healthy habits with exercising and eating well.
I will think of you on your walks as I go to the gym . Keep on stepping and next year at this time think how great we will feel.

Just for fun, try this online metabolic type test to see what they recommend for ratios.
