How can I eat pork if I'm trying to lose weight?

Keri Gans
Nutrition & Dietetics
To enjoy pork without sabotaging your waistline, follow these tips:
  • For the leanest cut, look for the word loin, i.e., tenderloin, loin chops, loin roasts.
  • Remove most of the external visible fat on the pork before you cook it.
  • Cook pork using a low-fat cooking method, including roasting, grilling, broiling, poaching, or braising.
  • Pass up high-fat sauces. Rather, flavor pork with herbs and spices. Coriander, cumin, curry powder, dill, garlic, rosemary, sage, savory, and thyme all go well with pork.
  • Watch your portions. Like beef, the recommended serving size is three ounces.
