Chicken recipes can be deceiving. You think you’re eating a muscle-building protein meal, but you’re often getting a good amount of carbs or added sugar in the mix.

Check out these 10 low-carb meals that are almost all protein. But remember: It's important to get at least some carbs in your daily eating plan, as carbs are the primary source of energy, especially for your muscles.
