Top 12 Protein-Filled Foods for Your Physique

The 12 most-effective muscle builders on the planet.

Salmon contains slightly less protein per serving than chicken, turkey, or beef, but it makes up for this slight lack of protein by packing in the health-optimizing long-chain omega-3 fats EPA and DHA. Buying wild or farmed salmon doesn’t change the protein content but it does influence the fat content: Farm-raised salmon contains more pro-inflammatory omega-6s and fewer anti-inflammatory omega-3s than wild salmon. The protein and fat combination found in salmon makes it ideal for pairing with fibrous vegetables such as broccoli or asparagus for a simple, high-protein, carb-controlled meal.
