Try to keep some of these things handy -
Cooked kitchen strips - one cup has 38 grams of protein and only 180 calories
Lowfat cottage cheese - one cup has 28 grams of protein and 168 calories
A three ounce can of white-meat chicken has 14 grams of protein and 70 calories
Two sticks of string cheese has 14 grams of protein and 160 calories
A full can of tuna packed in spring water - 37 grams of protein and 175 calories
Reach for nuts. Keeping nuts around will keep you from binging on high carbohydrate junk food because they are just as convenient for when you have to eat something now!
Nuts supply you with good fats that can lower your cholesterol as well as fiber and important vitamins and minerals. Make sure to select dry roasted and unsalted. And don't forget, even though it's high in good fats, that still translates to 9 calories per gram. Don't over eat.
