Are these OK to eat? Higher in fat? The other white meat LOL?

I haven't eaten them alot, but I'm tired of chicken, tuna and steak.

Comments please........

on the packages they seem to have the same nutrinal (dam I cant spell) values as chicken. I dont see any problem w/ them

Pork can actually be very lean. The main reason is that almost all of its fat is outside the muscle and can be trimmed off. And nowadays pork is raised to be leaner anyway.

They are good with gravy and yams. :d

Eat it theres nothing wrong with them, a little more fat will not kill you.

Thanks folks. I will put that on my shopping list. In fact, I had some for breakfast already with my eggs;)

If you check my journal you see I really am not too picky with my diet...I just try to eat every 3 hours. The reason I asked mainly was because I want to gain 10 pounds without adding too much bodyfat.

But, I weighed today and was at 185 (kind of been here a few weeks basically). But the last 4 pounds I have put on seem to be going to my stomach area. Or at least in my head that is where I feel it has gone.

I'm not sure if I can handle 10 more pounds like I put on the last 5. But, I'm almost to the point of saying screw it and just adding the weight and cutting later.

Pork tenderloin is very lean, not much more fat than chicken. I say go for it, they are a great tasting lean protein source.
