However, choosing white meat over dark meat would be a wise choice.
You should also try to stick to plain turkey tather than the Butterball variety unless you choose the Butterball fresh turkey, which cotains no added basting. Notice that one pound of comercially packaged turkey os 28 fat grams. Instead, consider having your butcher grind white meat turkey without skin for you at the grocery store.

We know that fish is considered to be a low fat food. However, you can see by this chart that some fish can be higher than others when it comes to counting fat grams. Of imporatnce to those with cholesterol problems, much of the far gram content comes from a more healthy polyunsaturated fat rather than the saturated fat s found in red meats. Fish is also rich in the oega-3 polyunsaturated fat that has been shown to help lower the LDL (bad) cholesterol levels in the blood and are especially potent in lowering blood triglycerides (fat) levels. If high blood triglceride levels are your problem, eating plenty of fresh fish may be your salvation.
