  • Wild Alaskan Salmon, Chicken Breast, and Buffalo for your choice red meat.  Preferably all organic if possible.

    Select leaner cuts of meat or poultry, as they are lower in fat and calories. Here are some lean protein choices I recommend to patients:

    - Beef: USDA Select or Choice grades of lean beef trimmed of fat, such as round, sirloin, and flank steak; tenderloin; roast (rib, chuck, rump); steak  (T-bone, porterhouse, cubed), ground round
    - Pork: Lean pork, such as fresh ham; canned, cured or boiled ham; Canadian bacon; tenderloin, center loin chop
    - Lamb: Roast, chop, leg
    - Veal: lean chop, roast
    - Poultry: Chicken, turkey (dark meat, no skin), chicken white meat (with skin),  domestic duck or goose (well-drained of fat, no skin)
    - Fish: Herring (uncreamed or smoked); oysters; salmon (fresh or canned); catfish; sardines (canned); tuna (canned in oil, drained), mackerel and other fatty fish
    - Game: Goose (no skin); rabbit
