Not All Ground Turkey is Good

In my talks I warn people about the truth in the case of Ground Turkey. You need to see the words Extra Lean on the packaging. Then it is from breast meat. Here is something from Fitness Magazine.
The Foul Fowl: Ground Turkey

It seems like a no-brainer for burgers and lasagna, but ground turkey often includes fat and skin. A 3-ounce serving can contain 13 grams of fat — almost triple the amount in lean ground beef. With 40-plus percent of your day’s worth of cholesterol, regular ground chicken is no better.

Slim Strategy
Look closely at labels. Extra-lean turkey is your best bet, with 1 gram of fat and no saturated fat per serving. Can’t find it? Buy at least 92 percent lean ground beef.
