  • Best grams protein per calorie foods

    Suppose you are trying to lose weight and thus lower calories but want to keep protein intake reasonably high...what are some good sources of protein? (I'm guessing skinless chicken breast is one of them.)

    Joanie? Where is your list?

    For me...
    Lean beef, egg whites, gelatin, cottage cheese, lean lamb.
    ------
    HCLF: lean red meat, eggs, low-fat dairy, bone broth/gelatin, fruits, seafood, liver, small amount of starch (oatmeal, white rice, potatoes, carrots), small amount of saturated fat (butter/ghee/coconut/dark chocolate/cheese).

      Any lean meat and eggs whites would be a good choice if you are looking at maximizing protein intake while minimizing calories. I personally don't look at calories so I stick to any meat and whole eggs.

      Whey protein or BCAAs would be an OK choice if you are in to suppliments.

        Cottage cheese for sure, if you eat dairy. A lot of my protein comes from low fat pressed cottage cheese as well as seafood like crab and shrimp.

            Yup--mollusk, crustacean, and sole/cod/snapper type fish are probably the closest to protein-only foods.

                Not to mention that the "beneficial" fats are mostly in the form of ALA, which is very poorly converted to the useful omega-3's in humans. Beneficial to a chicken maybe. A delicious chicken.

                    I finally put this in an easy to post form:



                    These are for raw/uncooked weights, and the chicken doesn't include any skin or bone. The salmon is pink salmon; the more prized salmon have a higher fat content. I did these for me, so the protein powder is the one I used at the time.

                    ETA: Don't worry about "1" large egg or "6" brussels sprouts - there are columns that are in Hide mode for that screen capture. It's just large eggs or brussel sprouts.

                              Oh, my effin' god. He's back with his shriveled vegan brain. Hemp has no heart, but animals do, moron.
