- and lose fat.
this healthy high protein foods list puts all the best protein sources into ABC categories:
- the “A” high protein foods list contains only seafood and poultry. because of their high protein content compared to their low calorie count, poultry and fish are considered the best protein sources from natural foods.
- the “B” list of high protein foods contains dairy and legumes (beans, peas and lentils). dairy is also important for calcium. and beans, peas and lentils are your best protein sources from high fiber plant foods.
