Most meat contains excess fat and saturated fat – but if you love meat there are better choices:
- Select roasted chicken over roasted duck, which has double the calories and 8 times the fat, due to the dark meat and excess fat
- Select beef tenderloin over prime rib which is marbled with fat throughout, having three times the fat
- Lose the rack of lamb and go with the lean leg of lamb. Four chops have 48 gm of fat which is the same as eating 1 ½ lb of lean flank steak. It has three times the fat of the lamb leg.
- One serving of glazed ham has your day’s intake of sodium and equals eating 6 cups of roasted peanuts in sodium. Instead, go for a lean pork tenderloin.
Or how about vegetarian once a week?
