Meat and meat products contain varying amounts of both fats and protein but they typically do not contain any carbohydrate. Consult the calorie counter for your favorite meat and meat products to determine the calories and nutrition facts.

High Protein Content

Meat and meat products are an excellent source of complete proteins. Complete proteins are just proteins that contain all of the essential amino acids your body needs. Adequate daily protein intake is important for a number of reasons – it helps to maintain healthy muscles, bones, skin, blood, and hair. Protein is also important in helping your body to manufacture new cells and to repair damaged cells.

Saturated vs. Unsaturated Fat

Meat and meat products that come from animals have the potential to contain fairly high level of saturated fat. Some of the meat and meat products that contain the most saturated fat include pork, lamb, beef, sausage, and organ meats. When selecting and preparing meat and meat products, look for lean cuts and trim away any excess fat before eating it.
Different types of meat provide a wide array of health benefits, though some types have the potential to negatively impact your health. For example, fatty cuts of meat may increase your risk of heart problems while lean protein may help you to lose weight. Consult the calorie calculator for your favorite meat and meat products to determine the calories and nutrition facts.

Increased Risk for Heart Disease

Meat and meat products as a whole will not significantly increase your risk for heart disease – it is only if you consume high amounts of saturated fat from meat and meat products that you may have cause to worry. Fatty cuts of meat like beef and sausage tend to have higher levels of saturated fat and it is those fats which can cause you to develop high cholesterol and, potentially, heart disease. To reduce your risk, choose leaner cuts of meat and meat products like lean ground beef and skinless chicken breasts.

Healthy Weight Loss

A number of studies have shown that an increase in lean protein intake coupled with a decrease in carbohydrate consumption may help you to lose weight. The body utilizes the energy from protein more quickly and efficiently than it does energy from carbs – these calories are more likely to be stored as fat. Thus, if you are trying to lose weight, consider swapping out some of the high-carb foods in your diet for lean meat and meat products.
