    Ground Turkey Vs Filet Mignon

    Hi Guys,

    I have been eating really clean with my protein being extra lean ground turkey and ground chicken breast. 1 LB of extra lean ground turkey is roughly 500 calories with 100G protein. 1 LB of filet is roughly 1200 calories with 120 G protein. So my normal day consists of 2 lbs of extra lean turkey which bumbs my protein over 200G and i fill the rest with greens/fats. Is there a benefit of eating 1 lb of red meat compared to 2lbs of turkey?

    I am currently 200 lbs 6ft and roughly 15% BF

    No.

    However, if you're eating 2lbs of turkey, and you're also eating other foods, you're going to be massively over-consuming protein in general...

    You do not need that much protein.

    Also, why are you eating this kind of diet? it sounds like a KETO diet, which is also not something you need to do at all...
    The power of carbs compels me!

    Eating that much extra lean ground turkey and ground chicken breasts just sounds awful in general. Do you like your food as dry as possible?

    Well, a couple things. I feel like I am really sensitive to carbs. The moment i have some other than green veggies and oatmeal, my weight will jump significantly and it will leave me craving a whole lot more. I eat the turkey because I am hungry throughout the day and would rather eat quantity in lean meat than quality rich meat. So i make 8oz portions of lean turkey and eat 4 of them throughout the day. I will have oatmeal in the morning, an egg, and even a quest bar which jump starts my fiber. I know its not the best but on a typical day, i have about 1650 calories - 270 g protein, 78 g carbs, 38 g fats. I used to be down to roughly 13% BF at 193 lbs but I let myself go a bit. Went on a 2 week trip and ate everything and anything with no exercise. then when i came back, diet was ok but weight lifting went from 6 days a week to 3 days. Back on track since last week though.
