Where's the beef?: The choice of eating pork vs. beef ultimately depends on your health goals. The same size of pork compared to beef contains relatively less calories but about the same protein content. Although generally pork tends to have a higher fat content, the fat content of beef can vary depending on the cut. How either one is prepared may also have an impact. All the best in your pursuit of healthy eating.
