Instead of increasing protein when you are cutting carbs you should increase fat.

Oh wow! I didn't realize yogurt and cottage cheese were considered protein! Thanks! What kinds of fiber do you recommend?

Need ideas for more PROTEIN please!
I'm trying to leave out as much carbs as possible this time around. Can you guys give me some ideas for more protein that I can add to my diet? Chicken worked well for me before, but I'm kind of tired of it. Other than meat and fish...what else can I take in?
