You must eat protein first and then maybe a bit of veggie. Carbs such as pasta, potato, or rice would be the last item considered in the meal. What kind of interesting meals would you come up with?

You're describing Atkins/South Beach/Paleo. Lots of people do it.

Grilled steak or salmon or chicken thighs with a nice espresso/chile rub and sides of a variety of grilled vegetables, a little olive oil, S&P. No starch needed. It's pretty much a staple here.

Six ounces is not much. Typically, I lean more towards a substantial serving of vegetables and the protein is secondary.

For example tonight, I will steam some garden-fresh broccoli and carrots (yummy!) and fry a well-seasoned boneless skinless chicken breast. I won't be able to finish the chicken breast so the other half will be used for a chicken sandwich tomorrow.

I imagine that half of a chicken breast would be about 4-6 ounces.

I believe that 6 oz, protein first, is the dietary rule for post-bariatric surgery. It ends up that they eat pretty low carb, though, out of necessity.

For me, one of my favorite proteins is cottage cheese, which I like to eat with chopped fresh tomato. Otherwise, grilled chicken with any number of seasonings, grilled beef, pot roast, pork roast - on the roasts, you'd eat the meat portion first, then a couple of the veggies that were cooked with it. Grilled salmon, with lemon-butter veggies (I prefer broccoli or kale for this).

I could happily eat cottage cheese with tomatoes every day. Sometimes I eat it with cold leftover steamed broccoli and brussels sprouts. That is very good, too.

If it is post dietary gastric by pass or Lapland, trust me you will be damn lucky to even manage 6 ounces!!!! I went from 230 to 122 lbs ( i looked sickly at 122) in about 7 to 8 months and trust me you WILL need the protein. Ten years post surgery I am at a steady 135 to 145 lb which I am happy with.

Make sure the protein is cooked very tenderly and with little fat, the veggies should be tender greens and the pasta or carbs should be mushy like pasta or mash taters.

If this is not your case then the consistencies should not be a problem.

Sounds like a post-bariatric surgery diet. You may end up being able to eat more than that once your body gets settled in, or not. Good proteins are meat, cottage cheese, yogurt, peanut butter/nuts, and eggs.

chicken veggie soup is always nice to have on hand. You can make a big batch and freeze it in small portions to nuke when you want some. A bowl of that with a few crackers meets the requirements.
