What are some high protein vegan foods, other than tofu? Would like to know the high protein, low fat ones.
Beans, nuts, seeds: All beans, lentils and chickpeas are good sources of protein, as are nuts & seeds. Hemp seeds contain as much protein as any food and it is a "complete" protein rich in essential fats. Quinoa is the highest protein grain. Seitan from gluten is also high in protein. While nuts and seeds do have some fats, these are relatively healthy fats. See nutrition/protein. Read more
I'm keeping track of food via app. If shows food % protein, carbs, & fat how do I know if food has good fat, or bad or a good carb etc.??
Nutrition: Good fats are polyunsaturated like fish, nuts or monounsaturated like olive oil rather than butter, red meats, coldcuts pastries. Unhealthy carbs are refined sugar found in sweets, refined bread. Healthier carbs are the complex ones such as pasta, whole grain bread, oatmeal, potatoes, rice. It's advisable that you obtain a book on nutrition which gives you much more detail. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have to eat in town daily for lunch. What foods should I look for to find a good amount of protein without a lot of fat, calories, sodium, etc.?
I am 19 yrs I have chronic pancreatitis (idiopathic), I want to increase my weight any advice for exercise. I am having fat free food no animal proteins?
Will be difficult.: Most ppl w/ CIP become thin. To increase weight, you need 2 increase caloric (food) intake. I normally recommend exercise & increasing protein intake. However, ur diet & pancreas preclude this. There must be some (vegetable?) proteins that you can consume. I would have you coordinate with a nutritionist who is experienced with your condition. Tell them ur problem & ask them how to gain wt safely. Read more
Should I continue consuming around 3000 calories of clean low fat high protein foods for the muscle gain?
Not that Simple: Endurance, slow twitch, red muscles (eg. Cardiac muscle) primarily burn fat. Higher strength, quick twitch, more white/less red (lower capillary density/blood flow) muscle burns more sugar. No scientific evidence that sat. Fats, of natural origin, less healthy than carbs/protein, indeed opposite true. Study: big fat lies, mcgovern's report, science for smart people, dietdoctor, nusi. Org, lustig. Read more

What are some food that I can eat that's high in protein and fat but low in carbs? I always come up short in protein and I use calorie trackers.
Nuts may be best bet: Don't know whether you are looking for snack or regular foods. Of course meat would be the obvious answer, but nuts contain very good fats as well as significant protein. Almonds and walnuts are probably best. So do cheeses. Of course they have calories, but you do need fats and calories at your age to continue to develop normally. Read more
Low fat is unhealthy: Eating low fat is unhealthy. There are many bad fats in our food supply such as hydrogenated and many of the plant based oils. You should always avoid those and foods fried at high temperatures (hi temp alters fats).

Sport's Nutrition: what's the best macro ratio? Carbs? Protein? Fat? For the purpose of building or maintain muscle mass (adding resistance training).
I think it depends: My brief research into this suggests it is debatable & depends somewhat on your goals: bodybuilding vs. Fat loss vs. Maintenance. More carbs are needed for body building, and many fewer for fat loss. 40-60% carbs are recommended for body building, with 25-35% protein and 15-25% fat. You might target somewhere in the middle: 50% carbs, 30% protein, 20% fat. Good luck! Read more
