Lean Meats: Lean meat like broiled fish or chicken has the highest protein to calorie ratio and eggs and non-fat cottage cheese are also excellent sources. Protein supplements like those based on whey or soy are expensive and have no advantages over the above.

Depends: If you eat dairy products you can try greek yogurt or cottage cheese (otherwise soy/almond/coconut yogurt). Non dairy sources include chia seeds, beans, lentils, quinoa, eggs, artichokes, broccoli, avocado, asparagus, tofu, peas, spinach, beet greens, peanuts, pistachios, sesame seeds, garbanzo beans.
