    The protein seems low. Most sources I've read say .7 to 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight for fat loss. Besides eggs, fish like wild caught salmon and grass fed ground beef are also good protein sources with some fat. On the pure fat side try using coconut oil. Its a solid so you could actually just eat with a spoon if you really need fat that bad, or you can put it in a smoothie or just cook with it. Dark chocolate and nuts have a good amount of fat too.

    Knifegill....a pound of meat per meal might be a 'tad' much for me, but I get the point, eat real food and lots of it. I do like my green although since I have started tracking micros I am realizing that I need to cut back a little....no one needs 914% of the RDA of vit K!

    Joanie, I usually am lazy and save leftovers for my DDs for work or the meat to top my lunchtime salad...maybe this goes back to Knifegill's point about starting each meal with more meat :-)

    Good tips Prine11...I am more worried about the protein than the fat, but I have thought about dipping a spoon in the coconut oil just to try it. I could easily add a little to my smoothie. Usually I add coconut milk, which I love but today I didn't.

    A pound is not actually very much. It sounds like a lot, but when you look at it, you realize you're going to need to eat more when it's gone.
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle
    At the expense of the American dream, American dream
    Of the American
