Foods that I are high in protein and low in calories.

I've started eating a lot of cottage cheese because it's 90 calories for half a cup and it gives 16grams of protein. I also drink quite a bit of milk because I heard it can cause weight loss to consume large amounts of calcium. What other food can I eat that are as protein rich and diet concious as Cottage Cheese?

Are you trying to find low carb snacks, or are you trying to find only high protein low carb foods. Whatever you do, do it in moderation, please eat some complex carbs and omega 3 fats, especially if you exercise.

Though protien is very good for you and important you also need to have balance. Eat some fruit and veggies.
They are good for you.
As the last poster said egg whites. That is the one thing that I know of that is high in protien and only 17 calories per egg white.
Chicken breast is low in fat and a good protien if you eat meat.

OP, watch out for the milk! I only drink 1 glass a day because it's high in calories compared to some other dairy products. Yogurt is much better. I also eat fish 2-3 times per week - low fat, good fats, high protein.

1 cup of skim milk has 110 cals
1 container of yogurt (sugar free, FF) has 40 calories
both are excellent sources of calcium!

every little bit counts!

The container of yogurt that has 40 cals is around 4oz. Not so calorically different, based on volume, than the skim milk. Plus, it has Splenda and/or other sweetening chemicals.

Not dissing the yogurt; I like it too. But that's not a fair comparison.

plus, check your yoghurts. It's all good them being 'fat free' but many times it has heaps of added sugar. Light and fit uses Slenda apparently, although I'm not sure I'm to keen on artficial sweetners.
