Which Meats Have the Most Protein?

Finally, an Easy Way to See How Much Protein and Calories Are in Your Favorite Meats

Protein is an essential macronutrient to keep you fuelled and full. As a general guideline, The Institute of Medicine recommends that the average woman ages 19 to 70 consume 46 grams of protein per day. Not only can a protein-balanced diet aid in fat loss by making you feel satiated for longer, but it can also "help you maintain adequate muscle mass during the process of fat loss or muscle gain," according to online personal trainer Graeme Tomlinson.

To help you see how much protein you're getting in your favourite meats and poultry, Graeme (aka thefitnesschef) shared an awesome chart on Instagram breaking down the calorie and protein values. By the looks of his cheat sheet, venison tops the list at a whopping 30 grams of protein followed by duck (28 grams) and bison (27 grams). As for your everyday meats, minced turkey breast and chicken breast tie at 25 grams.

"Whilst meat/poultry is likely just one component of a balanced meal containing carbohydrates and fats, it is an area where you can make a relatively small change which could help your goal in the long run," he wrote in his caption.

See where your top picks stand in the chart above!
