I know I am a very bad bandster for not knowing about protein, so I am really hoping you guys can clue me in a little...
I have noticed on a lot of the American lap band blogs that I read that you all focus a lot on eating protein and it seems to be a strict rule from your doctors. My doctor has never mentioned that I need to eat protein, but I am thinking I really should from what I have seen you guys saying. Aside from anything, you guys mention it can really boost weight loss and I am all about that. Does anyone know why eating more protein helps you lose weight?
I would say the foods I eat most now are eggs, seafood and legumes, which are all great for protein, but I am still not eating that much because I can only eat such small portions now. I guess I need to try a protein shake, but I am nervous because I have read how disgusting so many of them are to drink. Plus, we really don't have the range available to us over here in Australia that my North American friends have. I would love to hear from anyone that has any advice on great protein shakes or ways you add more protein into your diet.
Thanks so much for taking the time to help out, I feel completely clueless about all this!
