Default High-Protein Diet - New guide from DietDoctor

In 2021, DietDoctor, the world's largest low carb website has been adding more protein focused articles, recipes, and other information based on Dr Ted Naiman's The P:E Diet. Today they published an updated complete guide to High Protein Diets.

https://www.dietdoctor.com/high-protein

If you wonder if increasing protein would work for you, what is actually meant by "high" or "higher", this is a good place to start. Many links in this guide to studies and related information. If you want more information about Dr Ted Naiman's own program, the thread is: https://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=483930

My immediate challenge is to eat. I'm doing what I can, starting my day with a Premiere Protein shake (30g Protein, 1g Sugar, 24 Vitamins & Minerals, Nutrients to Support Immune Health). My next meal is coffee with HWC, or maybe bulletproof if my stomach can take the MCT oil. I try to eat during the day but lose interest after a few bites. My muscle mass is way down from spending so much time in the hospital bed.
Maybe I should just drink several shakes during the day to add up to the recommended 150gms per day.
I had PT yesterday and am suffering today because I'm so weak. Once I get up and walk around for a bit, I can keep going, but the sacroiliitis pain during transition can be challenging.
I also have to take lots of psyllium every day to avoid straining, as that engages the same raw nerve.
Ideas?

If you could mix the Protein Powders with 0% Greek yogurt or low-fat cottage cheese (see breakfast bowl in article), I think (wild guess on my part) they may be easier to digest with whole food protein sources. A full day of processed powders sounds hard to digest besides not the best. Smoothies of course, using 2% milk and ice. There are 145+ high protein recipes here...if you could buy already prepared soups, chicken, fish, maybe you can find ideas that are doable for your digestion . Wishing you a full recovery.

I love Janet's idea to bulk up your protein smoothie with Greek yogurt. You need the protein. I'd also consider those collagen drinks? There are premade ones with keto-friendly sweeteners, and I water them down to keep the sweetener on the low side.

Also, add dry gelatin to a hot beverage, or get those dis-solvable types of collagen you can add to any liquid.

These are complete proteins which reduce inflammation while helping your body heal.

After seeing Dr. Naiman on Diet Doctor and reading some of his articles, I figured I was a bit low on the protein side. For over a month I've been drinking a daily Jay Robb egg white protein powder shake made with unsweetened coconut milk (sold in a milk type carton). Unfortunately for me, I must avoid dairy so I can't buy the whey powders or boost protein with yogurt, etc. However, as it is I think the added 24g protein is helping me, and definitely boosts my daily protein levels. Still, I'm lucky if I make 80g per day total.

It's also interesting to consider that things like Bullet Proof Coffee, Fat bombs and such are way over on the left side as well probably right in between shugar and donuts. The graphic has it's own built in bias - just as we all do
