View Full Version : Hamburger and Pork

I always read posts about eating fish and chicken only. Does this mean that Steak, Hamburger, and Pork are off limits?

The reason people say this is because hamburger and pork have more calories and a higher fat content than do the "lean meats" such as chicken, fish, and turkey.
If you are cutting, it's easy to get way to many calories if you eat tons of pork and hamburger. Counting calories is hard enough so I would just add them to your calorie total. As long as you keep that under control and you will be fine. I'm not sure how bad the fat content would be, I would think that if you were in a calorie deficit that it really would not matter.
