    Thank you for all your work. I'm glad this thread came back in a new and happy (so far) form. The information you've put together is so useful!

    It's interesting to notice how many items at the top of the ranking are budget friendly, so it is definitely possible to eat a nutritious diet also on a budget.
    Ah can you add a "z" to mozzarella? :smile:

    (thanks again for sharing this)

    Haha! I added the extra z, thanks for pointing it out.

    The cost column is up and there are new rankings !

    With all this hard work, you want to see if you can make it into an APP (not sure how all that works). I bet you'd have a few takers for it.

    You are very perceptive. It's in the works. ;)

    Yeah, sorry, the chart is definitely too busy for small screens.
    I use nothing less than 13" to read it and my workspace is dual 24s.
    I assume an iPad would be ok but I don't have one to check.

    this is great work. Can it be stickied? Because this would be a chart I would refer back to.

    Below you can see the link to the Google Spreadsheet that I created containing 318 foods (as of 5th Sept. 2015) which shows the following:

    Column Title Meaning
    A P%Cal Rank Ranking of food by Protein Kcal / Total Cals (Highest is ranked 1st)
    B Food Food Name
    C Food Category 1 of 12 food categories
    D Kcal Caloric content of 100g of food (EU standard)
    E Protein Protein content per 100g of food (also doubles as a percentage)
    F Carb Carb content per 100g of food (also doubles as a percentage)
    G Fat Fat content per 100g of food (also doubles as a percentage)
    H Fiber Fiber content per 100g of food (also doubles as a percentage)
    I Grams Fiber/100kcal This is the fiber bang for your caloric buck information. Especially good for calorie restricted diets

    J Protein Quality This info is taken from the nutritiondata.self.com site. More info here: http://nutritiondata.self.com/help/analysis-help#protein-quality

    K Nutrient Completeness info
    This info is taken from the nutritiondata.self.com site. More info here: http://nutritiondata.self.com/help/analysis-help#nutrient-balance-indicator
    uvs366ipki5d.jpg

    L P%Cal Percentage of how many calories of protein as compared to the total calories of the food. In essence this is the reason this spreadsheet exists.

    M-U Hidden columns. They contain all the ranking of columns B-K above and are used to calculate the overall ranking of the foodlist.

    V Rank of Rankings Takes all the rankings above (M-U) and averages the rankings. Highest average ranking (lowest number) is the top food based on the above criteria (Seafood, tuna) and bottom has the lowest (Food, Chocolate Dark 45-59% cacao). It doesn't mean that the bottom ranked food is "bad", it just means that it's not best bank for the buck in regards to the above criteria.

    There you have it.
    Have fun browsing the list.

    PS If anyone wants to add more info, please let me know and I can provide you with editing privileges.

    YOU FREAKING BEAST! I was going mental adding then deleting then checking content for kind of foods I can eat -this makes it so much easier.

    THANKS A LOT BRO!

    Ok I just hope all data is accurate tho lol so I'll be double checking
  • viren19890viren19890 Member Posts: 783 Member Member Posts: 783 Member
    Ok just want to say it again. This makes it so easier for me to pick and choose which foods I can eat as a vegetarian on a keto diet whilst having high fat content. !!! damn



    Edit: Thanks
