Secret #7: Beware “low-fat” meat that isn’t
Chicken and turkey aren’t always healthier than beef. Some poultry-based products, such as turkey meatballs and sausages, are loaded with fat, and some restaurants add fat to their turkey burgers to make them taste better. A sirloin burger might be a better choice. Read the nutrition information on the package or, if you’re eating out, on the menu. Many chains now list those figures on their Web sites. Take a look before you go so you can choose wisely.
