I don't know if I eat enough protein--I don't really track it. I keep almonds and hazelnuts around, I eat 3 meals and 3 snacks a day, my cereal has a lot of protein (for a cereal; 7 g I think). I learned the hard way a few years ago that I need to have protein regularly. (I'm vegetarian, and I sort of follow diabetic eating guidelines, since they seem to work for me. I don't count carbs, but if I have starch, I make sure there's protein to balance it.) Sometimes I start to fiend for protein, and that's when I get the tub o cottage cheese.
The fitocracy "weight loss" group is kind of focused on calorie restriction, though some people talk about doing paleo or other fad diets. I should really leave the group so it doesn't keep showing on my feed. Though I can mostly ignore it, even if I really have to fight the urge to comment "and do you pass out from hypoglycemia twice a day?"
I'm 5'2", 140 lbs, and, aside from the massive thigh problem and being short waisted, I can fit into a size 10 or 12. I'm fine with that. I'd like to have smaller thighs, and in theory building muscle gets rid of fat; I'm still waiting for that to happen.
Thanks for the link! I'll have a look at those later. I need to get ready to get out the door.
