Ground Beef – Calorie Savings
How to Save Food Calories and Lose Weight By Eating Ground Turkey Instead of Ground Beef
Calorie Savings – Ground Beef
Choosing the right meat is vital if you want to lose weight.
Don’t forget, in order to reduce our weight, we need to reduce calories-in until they are LESS than our calories-out. Exercise helps us to increase calories-out but we can also reduce calories-in by making better food calorie choices.
Higher Calorie Example – Ground Beef
- 4 ounces ground beef contains about 304 calories.
- Twice a week, that’s 31,616 calories, per year
Choose Lower Calorie – Ground Chicken/Turkey
- 4 ounces ground chicken or turkey breast has about 129 calories.
- That’s 13,416 calories per year.
If you substitute ground chicken for ground beef in this way, you save about 18,200 calories, per year.
Weight Reduction Consequences of this Calorie Saving
18,200 calories per year is the equivalent of 5.2 pounds of weight.
