Highest protein with the lowest calories...

I have looked into this and from what I have seen it looks like Shrimp gives you the biggest bang for your buck! 100g is 100calories- makes counting easy too!

Any other low calorie protein choices?

Beef jerky gives you 11 g of protein for just 70-80 calories.

I think most fish, or at least white fish is fairly low in calories. I often buy tilapia that comes in individually packed pieces so that I can cook as much or as little as I want depending on how many calories I want to eat.

Yes, shrimp is good. I do tilapia fillets and boneless/skinless chicken breast. White turkey meat is also a good one, and cheap protein.

Tuna pouches are great too. One tuna pouch is 14 grams of protein and 70 calories.

Egg white omelets with a cube of Laughing Cow cheese has plenty of flavor, lots of protein and very few calories.

I was looking at TVP earlier today (after reading the thread about rinsing beef), and in general it is pretty low cal (if you are not opposed to soy). Bob's Red Mill says 12g protein for 80 calories, and it is pretty bulky once reconstituted.

Seitan is a nice, chewy meat substitute (if you aren't opposed to wheat gluten). I buy it at an Asian store, for my vegetarian son, but it's not too hard to make at home. One label I just looked up says 18g protein in a 3oz serving, for 90 calories.

Another way I bump up my protein intake is with liver pills.
Four pills=6.4g protein (28 calories)...same protein as an egg (70 calories)
and similar to 2 egg whites or 1/4c egg beaters (34 calories).
While they don't save a lot of calories over egg whites, sometimes it's easier to take them instead of eating more, and they offer different nutrients & amino acids...I like them!

They are pretty good. They are small, so you get a good number of them for 4 oz.
I use them in the cabbage and Laughing Cow combo.

the canadian bacon at trader joes is my friend. 3 slices is 60 calories. I dice 6 slices with pickles and a hard cooked egg and throw it over chopped romaine for an easy DD meal. the 6 slices of canadian bacon alone is 20 grams of (tasty) protein.

If you have a Sam's Club near you, they sell the most AMAZING fresh boneless, skiness chicken breasts! And to think I ate frozen chicken breasts for so many years.... Add garlic and other spices (like fresh rosemary) and you're in heaven! High protein with low yummy calories.

It's not protein, but coconut oil is a MUST for my DDs. Prevents hunger and keeps me going.

White fish also has one of the highest satiety ratings. So it will keep you full for longer.

My favourite protein sources that are low cal are:

- eggs
- turkey breast
- tuna
- salmon
- chicken breast
- quark

I mix it up, but currently 2 eggs and smoked turkey breast are my favourite high protein DD food!

FF plain greek yogurt, egg beaters and talapia are my go-to choices, but I don't really crave the protein on DDs anymore. I usually make 2 tbsp of PB2 before bed and often fast till about 9pm. I don't seem to get hungry until I actually start eating!
