As we say good bye to barbeque season we will put away those delicious pork side ribs for another year. Better you do!

A side of ribs which can be a portion size will set you back close to 1500 calories and 86 gm of fat.  Virtually a day’s worth of calories, cholesterol and fat!

It doesn’t matter how you cook them or even what sauces you serve them with, they are one of the highest fat and calorie dense meats you can eat. So if you ate nothing else the entire day you might be alright. Those succulent ribs are equivalent to eating 2 packages of cooked bacon in terms of fat. You’d be better off eating half of a whole grilled chicken at Swiss Chalet with the skin.
