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.

The long-term pleasure of being in shape far outweighs the short-term pleasure of eating things that are detrimental to your health.

Sorry, lady lurking, but I couldn't resist jumping in. . .

An egg has 78 calories, 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat (mostly monounsaturated) and you can boil a dozen in 15 minutes and have 2 every day for a week -- the ultimate take-with food!

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.
