Is pork loin (the round part that looks white) the same nutritional value as skinless chicken breast (white meat), if all pork fat is trimmed away?

Is pork loin (the round part that looks white) the same nutritional value as skinless chicken breast (white meat), if all pork fat is trimmed away?

Complicated: I checked a database that includes many brands of skinless chicken breast and lean pork loin - they're very close: for identical portions, the calories are identical (140 grams of meat=240 calories each; for pork vs chicken: total fat: 8.6 g vs 6.3 g but for monounsaturated (good fat)-3.7 g vs 2.2. For cholesterol: 100 vs 119. So, overall, they're about the same. (they both get a "b" rating). ...Read more

Been on my diet for a week just baked chicken salmon and turkey and I have not lost a pound and cherrios I feel bloated all the time to?

Keep cutting back on portion sizes and eating frequency and eventually the body will be forced to burn fat to survive. There are no shortcuts. This is the only way to lose weight and it always works. It may seem like you're not eating much, but scale doesn't lie. ...Read more
