Calorie Content of Different Types of Meat and Poultry

Calorie counting is an effective way to control your weight. Experts say that when counting calories, you need to carefully monitor the level of fats, proteins, and carbs you consume. One of the ways to get the right amount of protein is to eat enough meat. But meat is a high-calorie product. Moreover, differently cooked dishes contain a different amount of calories.

At 5-Minute Crafts, we made up a guide that will help you learn the calorie content of different meat dishes to control your diet more efficiently.
