Our expert says:
I'm pleased that you are losing steadily. Ostrich meat is low in fat and cholesterol (as is most venison) and you can certainly eat some in place of chicken or pork. If the biltong you eat is prepared from venison and you cut off the visible fat, then it can be regarded as "light' protein (low-fat), but beef biltong is still high in saturated fat and total fat because beef and mutton contains so-called marbling (fat globules that are spread throughout the meat between the muscle cells). So stick to the lower-fat options of ostrich and biltong made from venison.
