Protein Question...

So, the doctor said I'm not eating enough protein and that my body is breaking down my muscles to feed the baby.

Protein, if I remember correctly is: Meat, Fish, Beans and Nuts, yes?

I hate nuts. (get ya minds OUT the gutter!)
I don't like beans.
I can't eat fish.
I can't stomach meat right now.

Hmm... what am I supposed to eat? Oh - and I hate Peanut Butter as well.

You've eliminated most of the easy protein sources. Some left are

Tofu/soy (try veggie burgers)
Other vegetarian sources here: Vegetarian Protein Sources - Getting Enough Protein - Protein for Vegetarians - Vegan Protein Sources - Where to get protein on a vegetarian diet
Protein shakes
Protein bars (Luna, PowerBars, read the label)
Milk (cow, soy, almond)
Spinach (a lb of spinach has more protein than a pound of steak, the volume is just more)

Yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower. You can do a search of high protein foods and itll give you alot of different options.. Also, you could do protein bars and shakes.. The only problem with the shakes is they tend to be kind of chalky. Im sorry your having such a hard time Sad .

The PPs took all my ideas, I just wanted to echo that I'm sorry you are having such a hard time with this, and I hope that you are able to get what you need from some of the other sources listed.

Thanks ladies!

Honestly, I'd rather be having an issue eating protein than something really really serious be wrong.

She said I was severely dehydrated as well, but I've upped my water intake and lowered my soda intake, so hopefully that fixes itself.
