Kangaroo meat!!! For the Aussie readers out there, we grew up watching ‘Skippy’, so now it can be hard to come to terms with eating him! These statistics are collected mostly from the calorie king website, both the US and Australian versions.
Most elite sports people requiring endurance eat kangaroo or ostrich due to the high iron and protein component. Chicken breast with no skin contained the highest protein on the list with saturated fat remaining nice and low. If increasing muscle size but staying lean is your goal: Chicken breast, ostrich, white fish, pork tenderloin, or beef. If you need more iron (intense exercisers, mums to be, tired, pale, and elderly): Kangaroo, beef, or lamb. I suggest finding some recipes and experimenting with your three healthiest meats until you find a dish that’s easy to prepare and tastes good. Many people become irritable and lethargic on these diets, and they certainly find it harder to exercise intensely. I recommend cutting carbs out at night, having only vegetables and protein, but I always recommend carbs for breakfast and low GI carbs for lunch.
Love your website (found the ski preparation tips really helpful for when I went to Thredders this year).
I have so say, I was lucky enough to be coaxed onto Kangaroo when I was finishing school and have eaten it religiously since. Also, to anyone yet to try kangaroo meat, I highly suggest starting off eating the fillet versions, rather than the steak versions.
I am so pleased you like my site but very jealous you got to go skiing this year – I missed out. Although i do know that it is concidered taboo to eat horse meat in the US, it is used regularly in European and Asian cuisine.
I’m tired of people assuming the whole world is obese, some of us are already very athletic lean and cut, and could really some healthy fat for the winters. The Roo carcass have a high rate of Toxo which when consumed by humans can cause birth defects in unborn babies, permanent illness and even death. 13% of Roos shot by Licensed Shooter (that dosen’t include farmers, weekend cowboys or illegal shooters) are done so humanely. The majority of Roo Shooter have left the industry in the last 3 years as there are NOT enough Roos to MURDER & make a living.
Australia has the World’s record for causing the extinction of more Wildlife in 225 years than any other Country has done in thousands of years. Keep eating Roo meat and you might be able to skite to your Grandkids that you helped cause the extinction of Kangaroos (as well as that you supported cruelty to Kangaroos). Also, if there are Christians here that expect to go to heaven, they should be aware that as a Christian you are NOT to consume certain animals, Kangaroos, horses, dogs, cats, ostrich, clam, crab, lobster, crayfish, oyster, shrimp (prawns), bear, fox, koala, pig, snake, primates, camels.
ProfileAmelia Phillips Trainer, Fitness & Nutrition Expert, TV presenter, blogger, and Co-Founder of the Michelle Bridges 12-Week Body Transformation. High-protein diets are toted as being a solution for people who are looking to lose body fat. As its name suggests, a high-protein low-fat diet is an eating plan which emphasizes the consumption of foods that are rich in protein yet low in fat.
A number of health experts agree, however, that while a diet centered only on protein consumption may speed weight loss, it can also present a number of health risks.
The high-protein low-fat diet may offer dieters a way to lose weight effectively while avoiding some of the health risks commonly associated with high-protein eating plans. While a high-protein low-fat diet may be a safer alternative to a simple high-protein diet, some might find the plan difficult to follow due to the limited number of foods which fit both the protein-rich and low-fat categories. Though fitness will of course play into the ability to add lean muscle to the body, diet plays equally as important of a role. I’m sure you know what tastes great, or what you are comfortable cooking, but what about the health benefits? Kangaroo meat has less calories and fat per serve than white fish yet as much iron as red meat and almost as much protein. Also extremely low in fat and high in protein, white fish will provide you with some iron, minimal cholesterol and lots of healthy omega 3 fatty acids.
I’d like you to note on the chart the vast difference in nutritional value of chicken breasts without the skin versus a BBQ chicken.
This has been a reliable source of nutritional information, especially for fat and calories. It’s usually in the frozen section of the supermarket and can be cooked exactly the same as beef.
But be sure to eat the right part of the pig because other parts such as pork belly (many people’s favorite!) and roasted ham are extremely fatty.
Check out their stats, 300 calories, 14grams of fat. Steer clear if you value your health! Go for kangaroo, white fish, ostrich, chicken breast, pork tenderloin, or bison (in that order).
Click here to find out your daily iron intake recommendation as well as other foods rich in iron. A question; there has been a big change in the way we look at fat and these days a lot of diets claim that fat is the most important thing we can eat. They are unsustainable, promote unbalanced eating and in my experience only work in the very short term. Where do you think these items fall on the list for weight loss or are they just an over-hyped substitute for some of the other meats listed?
I always advise clients to buy organic as there is a lot of turkey products out there containing unnecessary hormones and chemicals, just like chicken. I occasionally will cook an expensive beef Angus or lamb steak, but the saturated fat content is always really noticeable. They are slightly more pricey, but are more representative of the uber-lean, delicious nature of this meat. I thought earlier in your article you said to avoid ham because it was much fattier than pork loin and that the latter was the preferred choice when it comes to pork!
Do some research – game meat is loaded with parasites and diseases not found in livestock. And then on top of that there is the handling of the carcass before it gets to the abattoirs. Compared to the many popular diet plans which center on the consumption of protein without attention to fat intake, a high-protein low-fat diet may allow an individual to lose weight without endangering his cardiovascular health. This may be because foods which are high in protein create a lingering feeling of fullness, thereby discouraging overeating.
First of all, many high-protein foods, such as red meat, are also high in saturated fats, which can raise cholesterol and endanger cardiovascular health. This diet involves choosing foods which are good sources of protein, but are also low in fat. Further, health experts caution that those following this type of eating plan must take care to ensure that their diet is nutritionally balanced. To get the lean muscle that you want, you need to eat a lot of protein—but not all protein is created equally! I also prefer this in a stew but I have eaten the steak and it’s especially nice marinated in soy sauce. Interestingly it is quite low in saturated fat, it’s just the unsaturated fat that tips this fish over the edge. UK Newspaper, The Independent has written a really interesting article on red meat and its effects on your health.
A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. This is a luxury industry and their is no need at all to be consuming and slaughtering our so called protected fauna. Some dieters may find this type of eating plan difficult to follow due to the limited number of food choices it offers, however. Furthermore, when consumption of the body’s usual energy source, carbohydrates, is minimized in favor of protein consumption, the body may begin burning fat as an alternative energy source. Further, a diet focused solely on high-protein choices tends to lack a number of important vitamins and nutrients which are normally derived from lower-protein foods. Examples of high-protein low-fat foods include skinless white-meat turkey and chicken, beans, fish, and egg whites. For instance, they should incorporate healthy sources of carbohydrates and fiber, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, into their daily diet.
I have examined our most popular (and some less popular) meats, and you might find the results surprising!
The main problem with these two red meats is that they are high in fat including saturated fat. On the positive side, salmon contains a lot more essential omega 3 fatty acids compared to other fish.
