Annik Posted June 4, 2020 Report Share Posted June 4, 2020 Hello. I am embarking on a CR practice after an absence of about 12 years. I am a 60 year-old female, weigh 125 lbs., and have a history of VERY high cholesterol in spite of a lifetime of conscientious and healthy eating. (It is definitely genetic and I am on a prescribed statin.) I will eat approximately 1000 calories per day, as I did previously, and I have a mostly vegetable diet (steamed) but also consume a lot of blueberries. Here's my inquiry: How much protein do I actually need? My sources of protein are fish, occasional free-range chicken or grass-fed beef, and steamed tofu. And, btw - I enjoy my red wine - 1-2 glasses a day -- SO, that doesn't leave a hell of a lot of room, does it?😑 Any comments or suggestions are appreciated and a big hello to everyone.
