Calories in Meat

The number of calories in meat can be quite high due to high protein content and often high fat levels. Trim visible fat off red meat before cooking to reduce calories, saturated fat, and traces of fat-soluble pollutants. Trimming away all visible fat is an obvious beginning; roasting or broiling on a rack or spit allows the fat to drip free of the meat. Of course, controlling the size of the portion is important.
