Looks like you're not eating enough, even if you want to lose weight. Add an egg to breakfast, a chicken salad to lunch, and have snacks of fruit, veggies, and nuts throughout the day. If you try to eat on that menu you'll starve and then cheat. Read some stuff by John Berardi.

Still need more protein. Maybe get some unsalted, unsweeted nuts like almonds, and an egg at breakfast.

Agreed. You need to be eating more. Do you track your calories?

Sounds like your just starving yourself and the second you start eating normal again you'll gain it all back.

Yeah for sure, two scoops for that is about 50 grams of protein. The shake is just like normal food.

I would go to fitday.com and track all of your calories. You'll see you still aren't taking enough in.

Protein is essential for keeping you healthy and preventing muscle degradation when you lose weight. Carbs and fats are just for energy. For lunch, get a tub of 100% peanuts peanut butter and eat it with your banana.
