High Protein, Low Fat, Low Carb (Carbohydrate) Grocery Food Nutrition Facts

roadskater's picture

I wanted to share some of my findings in my search for relatively easy to find, affordable, options for high protein, low carbohydrate, low fat food. I typically go for high carb, low fat food before and during exercise, and try to eat more protein after. I love pizza and mexican-american food, so take that with a huge shaker of salt. Nevertheless, here are some of my favorites that help me get more protein and a little less fat, and also don't require refrigeration before opening:

  • Hormel Roast Beef (paraboiled and steam roasted with gravy, product of Brazil)
    • serving: 2/3c 152g. 2 servings per 12oz can
    • protein: 24g
    • fat: 6g
    • carb: 4g
    • sodium: 730mg
  • Valley Fresh No Artificial Ingredients White Chicken in Water
    • serving: 2oz drained 56g ~1/4c. 2 servings per 5oz can
    • protein: 15g
    • fat: 1g
    • carb: 0g
    • sodium: 180mg
  • BumbleBee Chunk Light Tuna in Water
    • serving: 2oz drained 56g ~1/4c. 2.5 servings per 6oz can.
    • protein: 13g
    • fat: 0.5g

Not Exactly Low Fat But High Protein Low Carb

OK I just consumed a pack of Sorrento Stringsters Reduced Fat 100% Natural String Cheese (over a few days) and it was good (enough). It's 50% calories from fat, still, but scores well on the protein. It's deceiving when you see 8g protein and 4g fat, but as fat has roughly twice the calories per gram as do carbs and protein, it makes sense:

  • calories/serving: 70; calories from fat: 35
  • serving: 1oz/28g/1 stick
  • protein: 8g
  • fat: 4g; saturated fat: 3g
  • carb: 1g
  • cholesterol: 10mg; dietary fiber: 0g
  • sodium: 180mg
By the old "If I buy this I will eventually eat all of it" rule it's 64g of fat.

Quick Easy Protein...Seapoint Farms Edamame Shelled Soybeans

Here's a snack (or dinner) that I found at WallofChinaMart in the frozen vegetables section, and it's a product of China, but a well-made one! I've purchased PictSweet brand before but they are not shelled and one is admonished not to eat the shells, so the Seapoint Farms brand (kelly green bag) is a better deal. Cooking in the microwave takes about 5 minutes, and it's quick on the stove as well. Nutritional Information 16 oz Seapoint Farms Edamame Shelled Soybeans (frozen): calories per serving: 100; from fat: 25 fat: 3g cholesterol: 0mg sodium: 30mg carbohydrates: 9g fiber: 4g sugars: 1g protein: 8g isoflavones: 35mg I made up a quick Spicy Tomato Dual-Bean Soup concoction that was pretty good using these items: 16 oz bag of edamame 10 oz can of Ro-Tel Hot diced tomatoes with habaneros (or use a milder version if you like) 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes 15.5 oz can of black beans This soup would be more balanced toward carbs, slightly more toward proteins, and less toward fat calories than the edamame alone. Either way, this is a nice snack that's in a handy package at a reasonable price, at least, as of this writing. And yes, it's not as great as fresh, organic, all that, but this is what I found, can afford, and will go to the little trouble to make. Hope you enjoy it.
