TIme for a holiday dinner! Which holiday meat is the most diet friendly?
 

White turkey breast (no skin)
 

Duck (with skin)
 

Deep-fried turkey
 

Response:

White turkey breast (no skin)
 

Feedback:

Correct!

White turkey meat with no skin is your best bet. A 4-ounce serving is about 118 calories and with 1.88 grams of fat. In comparison, a 4-ounce serving of turkey deep-fried in peanut oil comes in at 253 calories and about 14 grams of fat. Duck with skin is not much better with 229 calories for 4 ounces and 12.3 grams of fat.
