Calories in meat, fish and poultry foods vary widely according to the type of animal or fish and cut.
Part of the protein food group, the recommended daily intake is 56g for men and 45g for women (aged 19-50 years).
Calories in poultry such as chicken and turkey are the lowest. Calories in fish depend on whether it is 'oily' (e.g. mackerel, salmon, tuna) or 'white' (e.g. cod, haddock, plaice) - 'white' is lowest. Calories in meat can be reduced by trimming all visible fat and choosing the leanest cuts.
