Somethimes when im short on chicken,turkey or steak i eat lambs meat.

I know it has a rather high fat % then the others but is it soo harmfull for the diet ?
Im cutting for the moment and keep my cals right , so a slight increase in fat in one meal is verry bad or not ?

I recently upped fat % intake cuz my weight whas stagnated.

Since i eat a bit more fat , im back into loosing weight.

Ive looked up some specs of the meat on fitday, it gave me following information for 4oz :

320 cals
Total Fat 22.27g 34%


Saturated Fat 9.2g 46%


Polyunsaturated Fat 1.59g


Monounsaturated Fat 9.43g

since more than 50% of the fats in it are not satured , i assume its not that bad or is it ?

Lambs meat is so good. Keep your total calories inline with your diet plan, and you will be fine.

Curious is lambs meat commom where your at? Price comparable to beef? Its a bit pricey hear. I've only had it once, and it was good.

We've got all kind of meats here , thing is , my girlfriend works with a butcher so she gets things (all kind of meat) for free all the time.

Would have been a waste if i didnt ate , though its meat so loaded with animal proteins ;)
