TVP (textured vegetable protein) is high-quality soy protein and not much else. Want 150 grams of protein without carbs or fat? Weigh out 150 grams of TVP and put it in the soup. Might want to add a jolt of something to hide the cardboard flavour.

Or, one could snarf down 3 lbs of tofu, and get stuck with 90 g fat (15 g saturated), 15 g carbs, and 15 g fiber [source: White Wave tofu label].

If i wanted to force protein without the collateral damage of a cholesterol bomb, i would go with TVP at about $2/lb. 150 g (1/3 lb) seems a bit much to munch in a day, though.
