Tuna is one of the cleanest sources of meat protien. Clean, meaning that it is usually very low in any fats. Then you have the whey protiens. If youre looking for specific type of protien drinks, one that I used to drink, and one of the best that I was aware of at the time...it's been a few years though so there may be better stuff out now....was called IsoPure. It's got 50 grams of protien in one serving, and not much else to make you fat like most other protien drinks. Very low in carbs.

Eggs are another very good source. The egg whites being the best part to consume. The yolks have the "bad stuff" in them. Red meats are good also. Soy protiens are on the lower end of the scale , but also a good source.

In addition to what swm said, also cottage cheese and fat free kraft singles. The fat free kraft singles have 5 grams in a single piece and its casien protein, which breaks down slow. Throw two slices on your eggs or eat a couple slices and it helps. The cottage is 14 grams in a half cup. Everything I eat during the day has some protein in it and I have no problem getting ~200 grams a day.

I would advise against consuming too much soy protein, since it has been shown to elevate your estrogen levels. It doesn't do you much harm if you only eat it every now and then, but it is truly on the lower end of the scale in bioavailability (meaning that your body won't process it nearly as effectively as an animal source protein), just like you said.

Cottage cheese, non fat sugar-free yoghurt and lowfat cheese are also good sources. You wouldn't believe how much protein there is in cheese... close to 30 grams per 100g in good quality cheeses.

Isn't your body only able to handle around 40 grams of protein per serving? I heard some of the Isopure protein wasn't even usable

yes, it depends on your body weight though. some massive bodybuilders can probably take all 50 grams, but for thenormal person it can be as little as 30-40 (I think).

even if you're body can't use all it, drink half, put it in the fridge and come back later (maybe before and after your workout or something)

Any source of meat is GREAT for protein.
Try beef, chicken, turkey, fish, lamb, pork .... its all full of protein, especially the Fish and Beef.

Don't forget about eggs/egg whites - also a good source of quality protein.
