Best high protein meals

A good "high protein meal" is a lot more than one with lots of protein. Clearly, if you are trying to gain muscle then the protein content of the meal is very important. If you are trying to lose fat then its important to pack a maximum of protein, vitamins, anti-oxidants, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids into a minimum of calories.

The mistake most people make when googling "best high protein meals" is that they are only getting a dangerous half answer. You cannot simply say that "baked chicken, spinach, and nuts" is a good high protein meal because its NOT unless you eat just the right amount. Eat too much and you will GAIN fat, not lose it. Eat too little and you cause your body to burn off muscle. Not only do you need to know what meals to eat but what the proper portion size is!
