    Do I have to restrict the foods I like to eat to be ...

    Meet Kaylee. She is interested in her health and looking for results from a new eating program. She says, “I know exactly what I should and shouldn’t eat. I just need to stick to the plan.” This new way of eating is different from her usual diet, and it restricts a number of foods she normally would choose. At first, following the plan seemed easy. But lately, Kaylee is having a few struggles. Sometimes she just doesn’t feel satisfied after eating her meals, and misses foods she has cut out of her diet. She has also noticed an increase in food cravings.

    Meet Rayna. She wants to lose weight, so decides to get serious about clean eating. After a week of sticking to her plan, things go off the rails over the weekend. Waking up on Monday with a food hangover, Rayna reflects on her slip up. “Why did I binge? I really regret my choices. I am so weak. I can do better.” I hear this story a lot and am guessing you probably have seen or experienced it too. As a dietitian, I recognize what is going on and have some thoughts that can help.

These are excellent sources of protein; however, there are other high protein foods I keep on hand to help meet our daily protein needs. I have some favourites that work well for breakfast and lunch and help spread our protein intake throughout the day.
