A Useful List of
Healthy Protein Foods

Here is a useful list of healthy protein foods. This protein chart is useful in preparing your meals because it provides a variety of everyday foods that contain protein and that can be easily added to your diet. It includes some of the highest protein content food.

In order to maximise your weight loss, it is imperative that you consume at least one of these high protein low fat foods in every meal. This means that ideally each of your 5 or 6 small meals during the day must contain one of these foods that contain protein.

Healthy Protein Foods

Of course, breakfast may be a little difficult; you don't want to have to eat eggs every morning. In that case, you can use a protein source that is higher in good fats like nuts and seeds. LSA (crushed linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds) is a good option. Simply sprinkle it on your breakfast cereal in the morning so you can balance out the macronutrient profile of that meal.

The reason why consuming healthy protein foods in every meal in so important is simply because the human body is a dynamic structure, which means it is constantly changing all the time. Cell are being built and are being broken down every second of the day.

Since a major component of all our body cells is protein, consuming a small amount of foods that contain protein every few hours throughout the day is a great principles to follow.

By doing so, you keep your body in a positive nitrogen balance or anabolic state. This means your body is building more tissue than it breaks down. This is an easy way to keep your metabolism elevated.

It is important to keep in mind that you don't need much protein. Just a small portion every few hours. This may be 100 grams of chicken breast with your lunch or dinner, which is about the size of a deck of cards or a tin of flavoured tuna. Perhaps you may want to have a handful of almonds with a piece of fruit as a snack!

As you can see, it is actually very easy to eat healthy protein foods with every meal.

The following list contains the highest protein content food. Therefore you can easily add them to other foods that contain the other two macronutrients to make a complete meal.

If you would like to get a comprehensive protein chart that contains more foods that contain protein along with their calories and amounts (in grams) of protein, carbohydrate and fat they contain, get a copy of my e-book, Look Good Feel Great! It is the only weight-loss resource you'll ever need as well as being a great reference tool.

Here is the list of foods that contain protein:

  • Lean red meat
  • Chicken breast
  • Turkey
  • Tuna
  • Salmon
  • Egg whites
  • Skim cottage cheese
  • Tofu
  • Almonds
  • Protein powder (whey is the best)
  • Diet jelly

For best weight-loss results, select one (or more) of these healthy protein foods and add it to a carbohydrate source to make a complete meal. Of course, you can add a fat source as well but many of these protein foods already have a reasonable amount of fat in them.
