High Protein, Low Calorie

Discussion in 'Dieting / Supplement Discussion' started by Tkdmmafighter**, Nov 6, 2005.

  1. Im upping my protein intake to about 2.5-3g protein per lb bodyweight, unfortunately, that comes with higher calories too, so my question is, what are some foods/powders/bars with a good amount of protein (25+g) and low calories? thanks.

    Why you are upping it to 3g/lb?

    increasing the protein increases the calories...since calories come from carbs fat and protein...just clarifying that in case you didnt know.....if you did know then youre basically asking for a protein supplement that has no fat and no carbs right?

    optimum nutrion gold standard whey is good, 1g fat and 3g carbs, 24 g protein

    3g/lb is a huge amount even with gear. The results could be interesting though.
    Bars are crap. The nutritional info is frequently misleading to be attractive. The carb/sugar/fat content always seems to be higher imo going by my own experience. I tried a couple including u-turn. Chef Jay's is proven to be false.
    Canned chicken/turkey/tuna is your best bet.
     
  8. yea, i eat TONS of canned chicken/tuna

    You should be consuming around 1.5g/lb of your DESIRED bodyweight. Moderate to high carbohydrate diets are very protein sparing (meaning you don't need to use much protein as energy - it'll go toward repairing muscle). High-fat diets (CKG diets, carb cycling diets, low-carb diets) are also very protein sparing. The days of 500g protein diets are over in light of new research.
