Protein awareness has become big business in the fat-loss high protein low carb diets of today. This decreases your options somewhat because it means you can only eat protein without any carbs. The list below indicates low carb protein choices very clearly.

Research done on the average American daily protein volume required is now set at only 50 grams, Bodybuilders know very well that if any weight training done in the gym or at home is going to be of any benefit, then daily protein intake needs to be increased.
