Best high-protein meats, say dietitians

Bison

 Bison is lower in fat than beef but has a fantastic gamey flavor, making it a great alternative for GERD sufferers who struggle to tolerate beef burgers without sacrificing taste. 

Canned tuna

For those looking for a convenient and nutritious protein source, canned tuna is a great choice. Canned tuna packs 27 grams of protein per 3-ounce serving.

Elk steak

Elk is lean, flavorful, and nutritious, yet it's often neglected. Compared to beef, turkey, and bison, it has the lowest cholesterol and maximum zinc.

Chicken breast

The finest high-protein meat is chicken breast. Chicken breast is lean protein, minimal fat, and calories. Regular chicken breast eating helps build, repair, and maintain muscle.
