    I like tuna. It's awesome. I have about one can a day sometimes more. It contains 23 grams of protein per 3.5 gram serving but it also has 10 grams of fat. This might include the oil that comes in the can though. I try to drain as much as I can. You can get it in water instead but the oil adds a lot of flavour. A couple of years ago I started eating the one in water and kind of got used to it but have since switched back to oil.

    yes the fat is from the oil. I like the pouches. They are moist, easy to use, and have between 90 and 120 calories. They also have flavored pouches that are around 160 calories but have a lot of protein.

    only 180 calories? Are you sure that isn't per serving? And these pouches are also low in fat.

    180 Kcal per 100 gram serving. Can has 99 grams/3.5 oz.
    Sorry I made a mistake in my previous post. I stated that it had 23 grams of protein per 3.5 gram serving. I meant 3.5 oz. I've never seen these but I'm in Canada so maybe they're not available here. I'm not big on the low fat thing I need every calorie I can get into my frail little body.

    I'm down to 151 and just recently started riding again. whatever I eat doesn't seem to be enough. I'm always hungry. I don't eat junk food but I don't mind a little fat.

    Don't be fooled that high protein means animal derived sources. There are plenty of veg foods that are high in protein and other essential nutrients without being full of cholesterol and other negatives that come with animal proteins... and soy (tofu) certainly isn't the only high protein veg food.

    Tempeh
    Seitan
    Soybeans
    Lentils
    Tofu
    Kidney beans
    Lima beans
    Black beans
    Chickpeas
    Pinto beans
    Black-eyed peas
    Vegetarian baked beans
    Quinoa
    Peas
    Peanuts
    Spinach
    Bulgur
    Sunflower seeds
    Flax seeds
    Pumpkin seeds
    Almonds
    Brazil nuts
    Broccoli
    Cashews

    I was under the impression that from this vegetarian list, only the soy products and quinoa contain complete protein, ei. all the essential amino acids

    Dunno about you guys....but reading that list made me feel like a big juicy eye fillet. Medium rare.

    Now that's protein!

    The net protein utilization, or NPU, is the ratio of amino acid converted to proteins to the ratio of amino acids supplied. This figure is somewhat affected by the salvage of essential amino acids within the body, but is profoundly affected by the level of limiting amino acids within a foodstuff.

    Experimentally, this value can be determined by determining dietary protein intake and then measuring nitrogen excretion. One formula for NPU is:

    NPU = ((0.16 (24 hour protein intake in grams)) - ((24 hour urinary urea nitrogen) + 2) - (0.1 (ideal body weight in kilograms))) / (0.16 (24 hour protein intake in grams))

    As a value, NPU can range from 1 to 0, with a value of 1 indicating 100% utilization of dietary nitrogen as protein and a value of 0 an indication that none of the nitrogen supplied was converted to protein.

    Certain foodstuffs, such as eggs or milk, rate as 1 on a NPU chart.

    You can combine proteins to get a NPU of one or even a little higher. Wheat gluten, and especially products like seitan made from gluten,
    is ideal for this. A small amount of gluten can raise the NPU to 1 easily with a wide variety of vegetable protein sources. With cyclists, quality is more important than quantity.

    I shop at Trader Joes and I've not seen this turkey meatloaf of which you speak. I shall, however, inquire as to its existence next time I'm there.

    I like tuna and salmon, but I'm a sushi lover, so I cook mine as little as possible, or not at all if I can get ahold of high grade fish.

    Soybeans are great for protein.

    I've also noticed that whole wheat pasta has a fair amount in it.

    The turkey meatloaf is usually near there pre-made salads.. It is fresh so usually has a shelf life of about 10 days..
