Eating Clean in the Off Season - Protein Sources!

If you're on a fat restricted bodybuilding diet - that is, If you're eating clean for bodybuilding purposes - the following list may help you (the bodybuilder) make more educated choices for your protein sources for a productive offseason (each item calculated based on a four once portion, unless otherwise noted).

Protein Sources

Food Grams of Protein Grams of Fat
Chicken Breast (Skinless) 35 1 or less
Turkey Breast 33 1 or less
Tuna - water packed (2 ounces) 14 1 or less
Milk, Skim (1 Cup) 8 1 or less
Oatmeal (1 Cup) 6 1 or less
Rice, brown (1 Cup) 5 1 or less
Beef, Sirloin (Choice or Select) 34 1.5-3
Beef, Bottom Round (trimmed) 33 1.5-3
Chicken Breast (with skin) 22.34 1.5-3
Salmon 32 1.5-3
Peanut Butter (Natural) (2 Tablespoons) 8 1.5-3
Beef, Chuck (Choice or Select) 34 4-7
Chicken Leg or Thigh 29 4-7
Ground Beef (Lean or Extra Lean) 24-29 7-16
Extra Lean Hot Dog (2 Beef or Turkey) 8-14 10-12

Conclusion: There you go a very good starters list for your offseason of clean eating. I know some are gonna look at this and say HOT DOGS what the hell are they doing on this list. My word to them is not all hotdogs are made the same. Though they should never be your daily fare you can have a damn HOTDOG once in a while (once or twice a month) it not gonna kill your friggin eating plan. Also if your that self conscious about your eating you need another sport because you're on your way to problems as a bodybuilder.

As for supplement choices I recommend one, a good Whey Concentrate protein. It has just enough fat to make it a slower better choice than isolate when adding muscle mass and all the active enzymes are still intact which farther produce more muscle mass and less product waste.
