Do you eat eggs? I do have to worry about my protein level. I went on a diet a couple of years ago and lost 122 pounds. I ate lean cuisines, fresh fruit, oatmeal, lots of yogurt, and skim milk. However, after I lost the weight, my serum protein level was below normal and I had serum BUN levels showing signs of muscle wasting.

I don't eat eggs either. I eat cheese, milk, lots of various kinds of beans and a variety of whole grains. Whole grains have a good amount of protein especially when you also eat beans, nuts or peanut butter, and milk products. I use a pressure cooker for beans and soak them first. Makes great pinto beans in under an hour.

Wow! 122 pounds! I hope you didn't lose too fast, it can weaken the body. If you don't need to lose a lot anymore, it's more healthy to keep some milk fat in the diet.
