High Protien, Low GI

Postby Etch » Sat Jan 31, 2009 6:29 pm

What are some foods that are high in protien yet low in GI. With recent changes to my diet i am hitting around 1600 cal a day, im satisfied for an hour or two before i am hungry again. I just cant seem to stay satisfied. Are protien shakes any good for this? And if so which ones do you guys use, are they high in Calories?

I've never used shakes but in my opinion you can't beat a big bowl of porridge, it will keep me going for hours.

I used to have that problem but have found when i have my fruit smoothy in the mornings i have a good morning and dont feel hungry until lunch. in my smoothy i put in 2 spoons of protein powder. Another great food is salmon- so I try to have some salmon for lunch and once again feel satisfied during the afternoons. I should start eating salmon most days- its a great food

I cant remember for sure- check out calorieking and it will tell you. From memory my breakfast is around 300cal but dont know if its because of the powder or another ingrediant- but I prefer having a high calorie breakfast as it really gives me the boost i need to get through my morning, it really suits my lifestyle.

You can get low carb/low cal protein shakes. I use 'sculpt' and it's only about 40 cals per serve (I think)
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

All high protein foods are low GI. GI measures effects on blood sugar and only applies to carbohydrates. Protein has little to no effect on blood sugar so foods high in protein with no carb content have no value at all on the GI scale. In fact adding protein to a meal is a way to lower the overall GI content.

Whey powder is possibly the best and most easily assimilated source of protein available. You can buy it at health food shops and either have it on its own mixed with water, or add it to milk-shakes or smoothies.

If protein isn't keeping you full and you want to incorporate more low GI carbs into your diet you can check this list of the GI values of foods. Just pick the lowest ones on the list and they should keep you full for longer. Always bear in mind calorie and fat contents, however. Adding fat to foods also lowers the GI so potato chips are technically lower in GI than baked potatoes, but they're not much of a food for losing weight!
