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
