How best to get more protein?
I began using Cronometer 9 weeks ago and I am using it to log foods and activities every day.
I am 68, white male, 220lbs at the start. My goal is to get too 200 lbs or below. I began to exercise with dumbells every day, and also to walk, run in place, calisthenics, and and/or bicycle 5 days a week, in addition to adjusting my diet.
My weight is not going down as fast as would be indicated by the numbers I am getting in Cronometer (which shows I should be losing 1 lb. per week). It is flucuating between 215 and 217 lately. It is my sense I am replacing some of the belly fat with arm and leg muscle.
According to the app I am getting the full % of carbs (not too much) but not enough protein. I am wondering what might be the best quickest way for me to add 20 grams of protein per day. I have been averaging about 80 grams (most days are above or below 80). I would like to raise that to a consistent 100g or so.
I eat meat only occasionally and do not wish to add more. I do eat greek yogurt, full fat cheese, 3 eggs twice a week, and a lot of tuna, shrimp, and other fish. I have been adding protein powder to the mix every now and then. Should I make that a daily item? Would that suffice?
Looking for recommendations here.
