I have had 20grams of protein today, which used around 400 calories.

What can I eat in order to get at least 40 more grams of protein in under 800 calories?

I am a vegetarian (no meat or seafood) so my options are limited...

Greek yogurt, cheese, can you eat eggs? Protein powders, cottage cheese

Premier Protein's clear shakes use whey protein and are 90 calories and 20g of protein. Whey and soy protein can also be added to things to boost it. But, protein powder can always help augment what you are eating. Whey protein isolate is the most digestible, though.

If you are post-op be aware that the protein in plants is not as well absorbed as from animal sources, so you may need to rely more on protein powders.

Here's an example of whey protein with decent amounts and low calories per scoop:

I follow a ketogenic diet post-op. I also have a diagnosis of binge eating disorder. Feel free to ask me about either!

Soy milk has 8g protein, silken tofu has 21 g protein, blend together with cocoa powder and sweetener or some protein powder for easy protein.
Cottage cheese also has 13 grams per half cup.
