high protein low calorie

#1 Postby lotusblau » Thu Aug 20, 2015 11:15 am

Hi,
I am having trouble arriving at my protein intake without going over my calorie intake. It seems that I can only eat protein and veggies otherwise I go over my calorie intake. I'm 74 kilo and I calculated that to have lean muscle mass, I need to eat 1500 calories a day and 148 grams of protein a day. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks,
David

Is that to lose weight?? If so it wouldn't hurt to go lower on the protein and put fats up higher with nuts, avacado etc.

Also do you use iifym.com ? Their calculator is pretty spot on, always worked for me.

But to answer your question, look around for unflavoured protein powders, pea is a good one or brown rice.
In terms of food, soya is your best bet (if your body can handle soya well) any form really, mock meats; mince, sausages etc.
or tofu, fried bean curd, soya beans and soya milk,

All the best!
