I feed both of us on mostly hamburger and chuck. With a recent craze for rotisserie chicken, because it's hard to find a good source but I did. I add bacon to my chicken wrap/salads. Cheese and yogurt are also staples.

Because I do best with 1 gram of protein for each pound of my healthy weight. Once I do that, choosing from high fat sources to appetite, I don't need much in the way of carbs. Or have the room or craving to eat from that category.

Once I've budgeted 3 meals with 40+ grams of protein, I'm happy and satisfied. It is crucial to my healing, too. If anyone is healing from something, follow the current medical advice I actually approve of: get more protein.

JEY's posts on protein got me ramping it up, and now I can't imagine going back to relative protein deficiency.
