What is the best protein to eat?

January 15, 2015

What is the best protein to eat?

That depends.  Each person is different.  We all react differently and some of us have allergies to specific foods.


It also depends on your goals.  If you are trying to lose weight than most days you will need to consume leaner protein.  You want to get the maximum amount of protein per calories so that you can eat enough protein, yet less energy, so that your body burns the fat.


Here is a list of protein to calorie ratio foods (calories per 1 gram of protein)

chicken/turkey breast 1g protein per 4.5 calories
Tuna/Halibut 1g protein per 4.5 calories
Non-fat mozzarella cheese 1g protein per 4.7 calories
Pork Loin 1g protein per 5.2 calories
Lean beef 1g protein per 5.3 calories
Tofu 1g protein per 7.4 calories
Soy beans 1g protein per 10.4 calories
Eggs 1 g protein per 12 calories
Yogurt, Milk, Soymilk 1g protein per 18 calories
Nuts and Seeds 1g protein per 15.8 calories
