It is possible to eat meat and stay slim in the meantime. Learn how you can turn meat from an artery clogger into a health-conscious option:

Minimize meat-centric meals. We should eat no more than one serving of red meat a week.

Choose meat packages that are labeled lean or extra lean. Lean means the meat has fewer than 8.5 grams of fat per 3-ounce serving; extra lean, fewer than 4.

Trim external fat before cooking and use that well-sharpened knife to remove any that’s still there once it’s on your plate. You can slash fat intake by as much as half this way.

Blot meatballs and burgers with paper towels after cooking to remove both grease and calories.

Try to buy meat labeled “grass-fed” or “pasture-raised.” It may have 25% to 50% less fat, fewer calories, and more heart-healthy omega-3s than regular grain-fed meat.
