I hope I have found something to help me feel better.

I went home two weeks ago to my mom's house and they have a place that you can donate Plasma. My sister has been doing it for almost a year now so I thought I would give it a try. So I made my appointment for the physical. Well it was late in the evening so I didn't get to donate plasma that day. But they sent me through everything they did. They take your blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sample in which they check the plasma level then the check the protein level.

That day my blood pressure was fine, my plasma level a little low, I drink soda. and my protein was 39, any lower and I would not get to donate. My heart rate was on the high end, but I have been fighting with my EX and I was nervous. So I went home to drink more water for my appointment in the morning. I was not hurting that bad that day

When I arrived it I was still fighting with my EX. My blood pressure was lower, my heart rate was higher and my protein level dropped to 38. So they would not let me donate. My muscles were hurting that day. So I went to the grocery store and bought all kinds of protein stuff.
That day I ate a whole bunch of protein, drank lots of stuff.

When I woke up I was not in pain anymore. So off to my appointment I went. My blood pressure was ok, my heart rate was still up but my protein level was 44. I was excited that my protein level was up. My heart rate was to high, but I attributed that to fighting with my EX and also it was the day my father had died a year ago. I probably shouldn't of went on the 22nd. But the amazing thing was my muscles didn't hurt.

So I got thinking that maybe it is the protein that I need to keep me from hurting. So who wants to try it? I have been making sure I keep eating things high in protein. So I thought if I can get someone else to try maybe I am on to something..HEHEHE
In the strength of the Lord, I can do all things

I'll give it a try!  I have been having eggs almost every day for breakfast and they are high in protein, so I have a start already.  Hmmm...it's time for lunch.  I think I'll make a roast beef sandwich!  Let's see what happens.

I'm game. Eating more protein to reduce pain sounds easy enough. I love to eat!

Going grocery shopping and stocking up on the protein.

you know whats funny .. I was just talking to my husband last night saying I think My diet needs to be more protein ...

right now I eat a lot of fruit , I seem to crave it.... and have a cup of soup for breakfast. Dinner Who knows depends on the day...

I have found that I can not eat gressy foods, fried foods. they make me hurt and feel Ill... or at least after I eat them I dont feel well and have to lay down in pain. so go figure..

I'll have to figure out what foods are high in protein. I'm not a big meat eater. I prefer Veg's over meat anyday ... and hate lunch meat grose. . I would have a cucumber sandwitch or tomato. Yumm..

intresting though.. Hummmm.

Spirit, mushrooms are a great source of protein.  I love a freshly sauteed mushroom and Swiss cheese omelet for breakfast and that has a lot of protein.

I'll give it a try.  I already know I don't eat enough protein and have recently tried to eat more.  I don't eat red meat, not much pork but I love chicken and fish.  I make myself turkey burgers sometimes for lunch.  I don't like egg yolks at all.  They make my stomach act up but I will try boiled egg whites in my salad( I just throw the yolk away-drives my husband crazy)  Oh and chick peas--love those seasoned and on a salad.
 
Wouldn't this be great if it helped?  I'm hungry now.

Since I have a hard time digesting dense meats I know I don't eat enough protein. I'm up to adding more protein to my diet. I do okay with fish and ground beef.

I found that this works for me. If I eat beef or lamb the night before I function better the next day. I eat eggs several times per week and they help also. I prefer the taste of pasteurized eggs, yum.

I don't know if Vestabula has read this or not but the herbal shop I go to now has P-28 bread. P-28 was designed by some bodybuilders who wanted to gain muscle mass but still lose weight. It's a whole wheat bread with 28 grams of protien in 2 slices. From what I read it's at Vitiman Warehouse and local Gold's Gym. There was an article about it a couple of days
ago in the newspaper. When I go to restock my herbs I'll check it out.  tongue

I'm sure I don't get enough protein, either. If I crave, it tends to be for carbs, or at best, peanut butter on whole wheat. I'm not much on red meat, and would just as soon skip on the chicken or fish, too. Labwork has shown low protein levels in the past. I do try to make myself eat more protein, but I could do better.

'K, then-I'm in! Wonder if there's any of that roast chicken left from yesterday's lunch.....

I have a recommendation for eating more good protein, which I also have recently started out of curiosity. I make smoothies for breakfast every morning using fruit, yogurt, honey, organic milk and silken tofu in a blender. Tofu (soy bean curd) is an excellent source of protein and also calcium. If you're squeamish about tofu or are just creeped out by it, you honestly won't notice a weird taste. I look forward to my smoothies every morning - they're portable, i can make the night before, and drink in the car on the way to work. AND, after a couple really really bad days, I've have had two almost pain-free days in a row. Bon apetit!
