Chicken or Beef?

With swimsuit season right around the corner a lot of people are looking at their waist and thighs and realizing they might have a little cutting to do.  If you think 'fish and chicken' with lots of salads are the meals of your future;  rethink chicken verses beef.

Many cuts of beef are actually lower in fat content than some cuts of chicken. Three ounces of cooked top sirloin steak, for example, has 4.9 grams of fat, while a skinless chicken thigh has 9.2 grams of fat per cooked three ounces, (according to USDA research).

Whether you’re dining out or staying in, pay attention to the cut of meat you’re considering and don’t just assume that chicken is better.Print Friendly and PDF
