    Egg whites are pretty much unbeatable for calories to protein ratio.

    10g of protein is only 40 calories in and of itself. What are you obsessing about? That should be easy to get without even remotely affecting your cals for the day.

    If you want to cut cals, get some BCAA, otherwise there's no way around.

    Branched-chain amino acids. Protein is made out of amino acids and there are 20 types of amino acids I think. 3 of them are called branched-chain amino acids and they are the most important amino acids for muscle growth or to prevent muscle breakdown while dieting.
    10 g of protein will be worto 40 cals no matter what but 10g of bcaa will be more useful to your body than 10g of various amino acids.
