Calories Meat

The calories in meats, which are animal products, are primarily in the form of fat and protein. The percentages of nutrients depends on the exact cut, in other words the part of the animal the meat is from. Check the calorie chart to see which meats have a greater number of calories; higher calorie density indicates a higher percentage of fat because one gram of protein equals four calories, whereas one gram of fat has nine. Lean meats, such as chicken breast and white fish, will have the fewest calories per ounce. Red meats, such as lamb and pork, tend to have more calories per ounce. These are also higher in saturated fat, indicating slightly lower nutritional value. Therefore, consumption of red meat is best limited to several times per week. All meat is nutritious since it is an ideal source of protein, containing all essential amino acids. Meat is also one of the best foods for vitamin B12, iron, and zinc. Condiments and marinades can add significant calories to prepared meat; check nutrition facts on sauces and seasonings for more information.
