10 Foods That Are High In Protein And Low In Calories

If you're trying to lose weight then protein is an important part of your weight loss plan. It makes the hunger pangs go away plus supplies vital nutrients to your muscles and organs. Too much of it can be harmful but in your are on a diet – especially a calorie restriction diet – then you run the risk of taking in too little.

What is the right amount of protein? Here's what Dr. Steven Pratt says in his book SuperFoods RX : "In 2002, the National Academy of Sciences published a new Dietary Reference Intake on everything from fiber to fatty acids … What does [it] translate to in everyday terms? Well, adult women need at least 46 grams of protein; adult men, 56 grams (very active and elderly people may well need more). It's very easy to achieve this protein recommendation. A woman can reach her daily goal with 3 ounces of tuna (20 grams of protein ) plus 3 ounces of turkey breast (26 grams of protein) … A few dangers in an exceptionally high protein intake: the more protein you take in, the more calcium you excrete in your urine, raising your risk for osteoporosis. "

Here is a list of 10 foods that are low in calories but have a good amount of protein:

Hard-boiled egg whites have 16 calories each and 3 grams of protein each.

Egg beaters have 60 calories per serving and 12 grams of protein

Hormel canned chicken breast in little cans has 50 calories per serving and 11 grams of protein

Albacore tuna in foil packet (expensive) has 90 calories per serving and 19 grams of protein

Fat free cheese slices (also a bit expensive, but worth it) have 30 calories per slice (3 slices almost 100 cals) and 5 grams of protein per slice (would be 15 grams of protein if 3 slices eaten)

(This one is weird, I know) A jar of baby meat sticks has just 70 to 100 calories, and there are 9 meat sticks in the jar! There are 8 grams of protein per jar.

Skim milk has 90 calories in a whole cup and 8 grams of protein (Hot or cold, mixed with sugar free Hershey's syrup-yum!)

Swiss Miss diet hot chocolate mix – only 25 calories in a whole packet! – 2 grams of protein (make it with skim milk and it's even more protein and SO good!)

Cottage cheese in half cup servings is 100 calories for 4 percent (lower fat versions have less calories) and a bit less than 12 grams of protein

Kidney beans or garbanza beans or similar – 100 calories per serving (about a third of a can) and 8 grams of protein. Beans are very healthy but need something zippy. They're great hot with raw onion on top and vinegar or ketchup.

Refried beans have 100 calories per 1/2 cup serving and 8 grams of protein.

As you can see, there are a number of low cost …

Egg Dishes & Sauces to be Wary of at a Restaurant

You may be surprised to find out that there are a number of egg based foods and sauces that call for either raw eggs or only minimal cooking or heating of the eggs. These include:
— Raw batter, filling, or cookie dough
— Eggnog and other egg-fortified beverages that are not thoroughly cooked
— Homemade and fresh-made dressings and sauces made with raw eggs
— Caesar salad dressing
— Bearnaise sauce
— Hollandaise sauce
— Aioli sauce
— Homemade Mayonnaise
— Homemade ice cream
— Mousse
— Meringue
— Tiramisu

California just recently changed its state law requiring the use of pasteurized eggs or pasteurized egg products in the preparation of of foods that are not cooked, effectively banning restaurants from serving raw, unpasteurized eggs or egg based foods. Many states will follow this requirement if they haven’t already. Check with you local Environmental Health Food Inspection Program.

The law in California states that for raw shell eggs that are prepared in response to a consumer’s order and for immediate service, the eggs must be heated to a minimum internal temperature of 145 F or above for 15 seconds. If not for immediate service, raw eggs and foods containing raw eggs must be heated to a minimum internal temperature of 155 F for 15 seconds. This second condition applies to all those egg based foods noted above.

If you plan on ordering any of these foods or sauces or see them on the menu, my advice is to either stay away from them or confirm with certainty with your server, manager or the cook that they are using some type of pasteurized egg product in place of raw eggs. Pasteurization is a special heating process just enough to kill common and sufficient numbers of microorganisms without affecting the quality of the food. Pasteurized eggs can now be purchased in three possible ways: fresh whole shell eggs(look at the label or stamp on the egg itself), liquid eggs and frozen eggs.

There was a recent outbreak (August 2007) at a popular restaurant in Los Angeles where at least 40 people were confirmed to have contracted Salmonella which was linked to Hollandaise sauce made with undercooked, unpasteurized eggs, even though the law had already taken effect. A reporter for the Los Angeles Times reported his painful experience with this illness in the paper.

The lesson to take away is not to trust that the restaurant is complying with the law but to ask questions, observe and do your own investigating if need be, to assure you and your family are protected, especially if you can’t stay away from these higher risk foods.…
