A cup of regular yogurt has 5 grams of saturated fat, so that just exceeds the recommended limit for an hour. Trying a low-fat version will cut this in half. If you opt for plain, you won’t get artificial sweeteners or added sugar. Feel free to add a cup of berries or other fresh fruit to give it a little somethin’.
Why not go for the full-fledged dairy? A small ice cream at ice-cream-chain-not-to-be-named is 20 grams of saturated fat, nearly five times your hourly rate.
CUT THE MEAT?
If you eat red meat, opt for “grass-fed” beef, which has multiple benefits. Aside from being lower in saturated fat, grass-fed cattle are more likely to live on local ranches in a more natural habitat.
Lean cuts have 4.5 grams of saturated fat (or less). For context, ten ounces of a rib eye or New York strip steak have three times the saturated fat of lean cuts. Burgers reach about 20 grams of saturated fat.
Poultry like chicken and turkey is usually a safer bet, so long as you’re not eating the skin. A chicken leg with skin triples the saturated fat content of skinless chicken breast to about 15 grams.
It’s easier for vegetarians to make smarter choices about saturated fats. Tempeh, tofu and other protein sources are generally OK on sat fats. Note: that doesn’t mean you're healthier-than-thou of you get your tofu deep fried or butter-soaked!
