Pork actually has relatively comparable amounts of protein, cooked or uncooked.

#4

I gotta get me some of that baby seal meat.


#5

ummmmm...... ?


#6

1 oz Seal bearded meat (Alaskan native)

So you'd have to eat the bearded seals? "Chuck Norris was here" He's given those seals the gift of protein.

And what's the dealio with squirrel cholesterol? 126%?!


#7

I like this thread with 176% of my whole being.


#8

% are daily values based on 2000 calorie diet.


#9

Whut, ya ain't never been in dat dere woods country?


#10

Squirrel is 11%.. Somehow I typed that one in for more than an once.


#11

Please say that number's a typo.


#12

It's an epidemic!!

Some things I realized:
1. Ground meat is worst cut of meat.

  1. Foods are lower in calories, protein, total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol before they are cooked (I would have thought opposite).

  2. Select and Choice meats seem to have best statistics as opposed to require. When select and choice meats are compared, select has lower levels of fat than choice.

  3. Besides Alaskan native meat, Moose, elk, and venison are very good for you (in terms of protein, low fat, and saturated fat.

  4. Cooking meats braised (on slow heat) not only gives you higher protein, but also gives you higher calories, total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol.

  5. Loins are generally higher in calories, total fat, and saturated fat. They can also be higher in protein. Cholesterol levels seem unaffected in most cases.

Here are some of the steaks:

1 oz beef porterhouse trimmed 0 fat usda select cooked:
Calories: 55
Total fat: 4%
Saturated fat: 5%
Cholesterol: 5%
Protein: 8g

1 oz beef ribeye trimmed 0 fat select cooked:
Calories: 51
Total fat: 3%
Saturated fat: 3%
Cholesterol: 6%
Protein: 8g

1 oz beef top blade trimmed 0 fat usda select cooked:
Calories: 52
Total fat: 3%
Saturated fat: 4%
Cholesterol: 6%
Protein: 7g

1 oz beef mock tender trimmed 0 fat usda select cooked:
Calories: 44
Total fat: 2%
Saturated fat: 3%

Brendan,

What's the source for this info?

Call me old fashion but meat is meat. As long as it has protein and previously walked on more than 2 legs I'm game. No shit, could you imagine if eskimos lifted. They'd dominate bodybuilding and powerlifting with all that muscle from the seals.

"Don't club a seal, braise it."


#17

Interesting stuff. I will have to print this out for next time I go to the butcher.


#18

More than 2 legs? Pussy.


#19

That's a bit deceptive. When you cook meat, you're evaporating the water content, so obviously per unit weight the meat will have more calories. However, cooking a piece of meat will not increase the total amount of macronutrients.
