Last month, we had our annual wellness physical at the Louisville office. I was anxious to see my results because I started running since the last wellness physical. As any good CPA would do, as soon as I got the results, I compared this year to last year. I was expecting to see significant improvement, but was surprised to see the my cholesterol was acutally higher (still average, but higher). After the initial disappointment I started tracking my diet using DailyBurn.com. I discovered that I was not eating too many calories, just too many carbs and not enough protein.
I started searching for foods high in protein, but low in fat. That proved to be a challenge. I also noticed that I was eating protein at lunch and dinner, but none for breakfast. So, I turned to my Twitter followers for help with this tweet. Within a matter of minutes, I had ten responses of high-protein tasty foods to try. Better than that, I received recommendations from people that I trust. See the responses below. I hope you find them helpful, too.
At the same time, I was helping a University of Louisville accounting student with inteviewing and CPA exam questions. As I logged off that evening I thought to myself, "If I were to describe Twitter in one word tonight, it would be helpful." That is the key to successful social networking: being helpful and adding value to your followers. Thanks to all who helped me.
inspiremetoday @MikeCampbellCPA If you're really looking for health benefits, it's the best thing possible. I use Metagenics or YoungLiving. Both great.

I think I need to eat a higher protein breakfast. Got any ideas for something low-fat, quick and easy? #twit2fit
