Now that summer has come to an end I feel safe letting all of you know about this information regarding BBQ from the American Heart Association. Barbecue can sabotage your waistline. A 20 ounce T-bone steak can weigh in at 1,540 calories, with 124 grams of fat. A cheeseburger has 750 calories and 45 grams of fat. Pork or beef ribs come from the fattiest part of the animal. Healthier options include pork tenderloin, skinless chicken breast, and lean ground beef.
I hate to say it but all the studies showing saturated fat as being heart unhealthy were using BBQ. Turns out it isnt the saturated fat (although it is loaded with calories) but the charred fat that turns into trans fat that is damaging.
Best options I hate to say it are baking or grilling. Keep the BBQ to a minimum.
Have a blessed day!
