  • You would be better of to eat turkey. It is much more lean. It never makes any fat and it's just as delicious.

  • Also a serving of meat should be the size of the palm of your hand.

  • Yep. ON weight watcher's, I ate it all the time and lost weight. On their plan, I ate McDonalds burgers and fries and still lost weight. It's not what you eat necessarily as how much you eat.

  • I eat that all the time. I tried to eat lean ground turkey but Im just not a fan of it...even though the kids couldnt tell the difference. I always buy 93/7 meat...very tasty

  • It's not what you eat but how much you eat!! Just like someone said above!! Eat in moderation but not the size of your palm that is plain stupid! If it's the size of my palm then I'm stacking it high!!!

  • Anon - a serving of meat is the roughly the size of your palm. a more accurate description is the size of a deck of cards.

  • i agree with the its not what you eat but how much if you stop eating when you feel about 80% full then by the time the singals in your body get all around youll feel 100 % full . dont stuff your self. eat actual severings not big portions

  • You (and your budget and your family) would be much better off eating lentil, beans, tofu, seitan, etc. They are loaded with fiber (which meat lacks), protein, calcium, and iron (especially beans).
