Best: Turkey

Eating any high-quality protein helps to trigger satiety so you’re less likely to over-indulge on less healthful foods. And turkey―dark meat or white―is one of the lowest-calorie protein sources you can eat. A three-ounce serving of skinless turkey breast has about 120 calories and one gram of fat.
