I have to agree with Sailor64. There are a lot of good protein sources out there, so pick one or several that appeal to your tastebuds and incorporate them into your diet. Don't be afraid to experiment with the exotic. You may find emu or bison or snake a tasty source in addition to regular supermarket standards.

The best source of protein is the one you will actually eat. It doesn't matter where it comes from as long as you get 56 grams/day on a 2000/cal per day diet.

Nonfat cottage cheese. Most protein for lowest calories.

Chances are you don't need tons of protein. I usually have 4 oz of lean pork for lunch and 6 oz of chicken at dinner. That's 55 grams of protein . The RDA for protein is 56 grams. Throw in a protein bar, 8 ounce protein shake, and a serving of Greek Yogurt and you will add another 50 grams, never mind the additional protein in any vegetables or nuts you might eat. A balanced diet will go a lot further than protein loading. The fact is if you eat within an appropriate calorie range and exercise -- actual exercise that elevates your heart rate--you can get incredible results and you won't have to spend tons of money on steak and protein shakes for a gimmick diet you can't possibly sustain for the rest of your life . My 2 cents.
I recently re-discovered lentils (seasoned and sprouted The Perfect Snaque); they have 6 grams protein in 28 gram serving along with 4 grams of fiber and only 1.5 grams of fat. Great for on the go snacking, otherwise I think chicken is a good source of protein. Buy some boneless skinless chicken, chop it up into bite size chunks and steam it in a double-boiler; done in 10 or 12 minutes. Make enough for an entire week of meals.

I hear they whey protein is the best. That is what I'm using just so that I don't loose muscle as I'm losing weight.
