Infographic: How to Choose Lean Meats

The following infographic presents a simple rule for choosing lean meats.

But why are lean meats so important?

The National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) reports that indiviuals who are able to lose at least 10 percent of their body weight and keep it off long term (for more than one year) consume a diet low in calories and fat.

Choosing lean meats as opposed to fattier meats decreases both calorie and fat intake!

Additionally, red and processed meats may lead to increased risk of colorectal cancer – which is second leading cause of cancer related deaths in American men and women!

So to decrease calorie and fat intake intake and improve your overall wellness, count the legs when choosing your meats!
