Ok here goes - If you want some protein with your oatmeal just cook up a couple of egg whites and have it on the side.
If your having something like a pasta salad, just throw in a can of tuna.
If Im going to have a meal with less protien than I want I simple just eat meat as a side dish. Small steak, half a chicken breast, small proetin shake, half tin of tuna, eggs, turkey... The art is in the cooking. If you let the meat breath for an hour before you cook it, and use a nice oil, the meat will be perfectly tastey on its own.
You could try adding whey to your oatmeal. Some people like it.
I tried choc casein in my oatmeal once. Yuck!
I mixed ON's double chocolate and vanilla flavors today...
On another note, I usually add p-powder to anything sweet, like a pb sandwich or a bowl of cereal.
I'll have to try it again. It turns out the milk was sour...

well, 4cals toa gram of protein, so you can max out with 25g of pure protein to get 100cals..
not the most realistic attempt though. protein powder's an option, 24g protein, a couple grams carbs and maybe 1g of fat...it might be 120cals but that's not too far off.
otherwise, egg whites are about the next most pure source, 0g fat, and like only 1g of carbs in a whole cup of egg whites.
if you had any room for a couple grams of fat, I'd suggest ground turkey breast, and then mix in some typical spices used in breakfast sausage, and make a small patty.
The best way to maintain you diet is to make a diet chart which includes all the food items contains all those things which is good for a healthy body. Your one day diet must contain proteins, minirals, vitamins and all those things which is required for your healthy body.
use fitday, and plan out 'the perfect day'. then pay attention to the quantities of meat, eggs, etc that you had to use to reach that point.
when LV put me on his fat loss program, it was a lot different than what I'd been eating in terms of protein, because on certain days my carb intake is no more than a bowl of oatmeal and 3 cups of fiberous veggies. On those days (like today) I need 5-6oz of meat....50g of protein, at every meal.
it took me a few days to get my new meals figured out, and adjusting to that kind of eating.
when someone gives me their food intake, i'll plug it into fitday to compare calorie counts, which are usually not consistent because people over/under estimate their portions. I weigh my food when I can, and over time you get really good at telling how much a piece of meat weighs by looks alone.
I'm also a 2nd degree master at 1.00 ounce cheese slicing
What kind of scale do you use to measure/weigh your food? I always put estimates in fitday, so I never really know how much it is. That's mostly with chicken breasts and steak.
we went through 2 cheapie scales, and then recently picked up a Salter digital scale for around $50. it does grams, ounces, pounds, kilos, and zero's out with one button (making it easy to put your plate on the scale and reset to zero, then put your food on to weigh it)
Cool, thanks. I'm good on all of my measuring cups/spoons, I just don't have any way to tell how much chicken/steak or any other meat for that matter weighs. I'll head to wal-mart and see what they have. I'll check online for the Salter version you mention as well. Thanks for the replies.
I'm surprised nobody mentioned how much protein is in an egg white. So I looked it up and it's about 6.5 grams.
