For people who are serious about reducing their bad cholesterol it is essential to minimize saturated fat intake. It is well known that meat contains saturated fat, but is it necessary to forgo all meat? The answer is no. There are certain types of meat which will not significantly increase your saturated fat intake, but will still supply your body with the protein it needs (other sources of protein are fish and tofu). Try chicken, lamb, or the few red meat exceptions available, such as eye of the round in beef, or pork tenderloin, for protein. As an example, here is an easy and delicious pork tenderloin recipe.
