High-Protein, Low-Fat Foods

Updated November 21, 2016

Eating foods that are high in protein and low in fat can help you reduce the calories in your diet and still feel satisfied after a meal. Many high-protein foods are also high in saturated fats, but there are plenty of low-fat options as well.

Beef is a good source of protein. Lean cuts, from the round or sirloin, are the lowest in fat.


Chicken and turkey provide a good quantity of protein and are low in fat, if you remove the skin and eat only the white meat.


Most types of fish are low in fat, and all provide plenty of protein. Stay away from fried fish, or canned fish packed in oil.


Egg whites have almost no fat at all and can be used in place of whole eggs in most recipes.


Beans can be a filling source of low-fat protein, if you avoid refried beans and canned beans with added pork.


Choose low-fat or nonfat cottage cheese, whey powder or ricotta cheese for a calcium-rich source of protein.
