Our expert says:
Untrimmed red meat has quite high fat and energy contents (for example untrimmed grilled steak contains about 17.2g of fat and 113 kJ per 100g), while fat-trimmed grilled steak contains 9.3 g of fat and 855 kJ per 100g. So a lot depends on what type of meat you buy and how you prepare it and how much you eat. White chicken meat without skin for example contains 4g of fat and 666 kJ per 100g and if you only have 50g then you would halve your fat and energy intake. Meat as such is a good source of high quality protein, B vitamins and minerals like iron and zinc, so it can definitely be used in a slimming diet, but white chicken or other poultry meat (ostrich, turkey)without skin, pork with all the fat removed and venison prepared with the minimum of fat are preferred.
