The incredible edible egg! At 6 grams per ounce, eggs are another body builder's go-to protein source. While most of the protein is in the white of the egg, don't hesitate to also eat the yolk. It is a great source of vitamin B12 which helps in fat breakdown and contraction, and does not enhance cholesterol as prevously believed.

Ounce for ounce, the breast meat of turkey and chicken have the most protein-- 9 grams per serving. It is also a rich source of vitamin B.
