You'll notice that even though the fat count is included on the high protein foods list above, there's no saturated fat count listed. That's because the foods on this list of high protein foods are ALL low in saturated fats.

For example, there's no red meat listed for two very good reasons.

Red meat is usually too high in saturated fat, which has been shown to lead to many degenerative diseases. And red meat also increases inflammation, which causes pain, suffering and numerous health problems.

When it comes to choosing foods with protein, it's vitally important to choose healthy high protein foods from the best sources of protein.

So you can confidently print and use this high protein foods list for a high protein diet, since it has all of the healthy protein rich foods high in protein content to help you say healthy, lose weight and build muscle.
