    Hi All,

    I am brand new to this and will be starting VLCD tomorrow for the first time. Try as I may, I can't find exactly how much protein is supposed to be consumed a day. I think I read that it's 50-60gr, but it doesn't seem like I will get to that with the eggs, CC and whey powder I plan on using. Does anyone have the correct figures?

    About 40-50 grams. I think 7 oz of tilapia would have closer to 40 grams and 7 oz of chicken breast closer to 50 grams, so that's a good estimate.

    Thank you! I am on VLCD1 and want to make sure I'm staying as close to protocol as possible.

    foods Highest in Calories are Almond, Nuts, Dark chocolate and dried fruit, Avocado, Whole grain and all dairy products.
    Food that are highest in protein are Nuts and Seeds including Pumpkin, Squash, and Watermelon Seeds, Peanuts, Almonds, Yogurt, Milk, and Soya milk, Beans and Cheese
    These foods are beneficial to weight loss and maintaining good health

    But none of those foods are on the hcg protocol.

    Who are these random people who post things like this? Are they just running around the internet posting info about food and exercise completely unrelated to anything? What for?

    But I noticed you posted non-vegetarian options in this thread a couple of days ago?! Chicken, tilapia...those aren't vegetarian options.

    Are you talking about my reply to someone asking how many grams of protein are required for the diet? I answered that there's no gram requirement; there's only food requirements, so vegetarians should try to mimic the nutritional makeup of the required foods. For example, don't eat chicken or tilapia, but choose foods (vegetarian foods) with similar number of protein and fat grams to chicken and tilapia.

    Hi, according to the article I read, we really do not need much protein as we usually think. However, I guess it may depend also on our body weight and eating habits. Well, I found something online that could help us decide on the protein intake we should have per day. You may read about it here. I hope it will be of help to you guys

    Read on to learn demonstrated advantages of a high protein eat less, beside the advantages of expanded bulk and decrease of muscle versus fat, expanded protein admission is related with numerous other medical advantages, the amino acids that make up proteins are required for sound cells, bone development and nail and hair development...
