Protein Grams in Poultry
In many cuts, the amount of protein contained therein exceeds that contained in beef cuts.
For example, a chicken breast contains close to 60 protein grams; half - about 30 g. In comparison, a serving of Filet Mignon contains about 24 grams.
In addition, white meat has been recommended over the red cuts for decades now as it's lower in the bad types of fatty acid distribution which can contribute to heart disease, stroke, certain types of cancers and diabetes.
While red meat can still make a healthy choice for your eating plan, it shouldn't be on the menu each and every day.
Mix things up - and enjoy the red meats in moderation.

Fast Food Diet Tip: Choose the taco with the corn shell rather than the floured one. Corn shells generally contain about 40 to 50 calories each with their flour counterparts containing more than double the calories.
When dining Mexican, concentrate on the salsa rather than the chips. See how much salsa you can top the chip with and leave room for the real meal.
Remove all excess skin and fat from chicken before cooking. Chicken fat contains 100% fat and 100% cholesterol. Cooking with chicken fat is just shy of cooking with lard - lethal to any diet.
When preparing homemade cheeseburgers, opt for skim milk based cheeses and blot excess oil from meat before adding to bun. Toast bun using no calorie butter spray or non stick butter spray.
