Keeping the protein down

leave a comment »

As I mentioned, my goal is to get 55% of my calories from carbs, 25% from fat, and 20% from protein. When I eat meat or fish, I have to be careful or the protein proportion climbs. And when I decided to have fresh ahi tuna in a dish, I had to cut down the amount a LOT so that the protein would stay under control: a portion of 2.5 oz, to be exact. (Of course, I’m keeping my total daily calories at 1500, which means that portions must be fairly small anyway, but that tuna is definitely calorie-rich and protein-rich.) I can see how easily people who eat meat and fish can get too much protein in their diet. (Thank heavens for Fitday.)
