I am going on a low fat diet, but not a vegan diet. I am looking for meats that are low in fat and so far I have come up with salmon and chicken breast.

Basically I am eating only fruits, vegetables, and lean meat and going to take in less than 20% fat as noted in a study of tribal populations that don't have acne.

I'll update later. I have a good feeling about this diet. It makes sense to me and is very anti-inflammatory.

Interesting, as I remember during a discussion on the merits of the paleo diet you had said that the paleo diet had cleared your acne several times.

As far as lean meats, pork tenderloin is supposed to be as lean or leaner than chicken breast. Wild game meat is also low in fat.

Any kind of 'loin' is low in fat. Get some beef in your diet. Have some sirloin steaks. If you can find turkey breast, get some of that too. Try some bison or venison.

That's wrong. Beef tenderloin is not low in fat. http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/beef-products/3783/2

First of all, who the hell would eat beef raw? And way to choose data for something that's trimmed to 1/8" fat. It's like arguing that chicken breast isn't near zero fat because of the skin on it.

Here's nutritional data on beef tenderloin cut to 0" fat that's cooked:

And i suggested he try sirloin cuts in particular.

That's still not low in fat, even assuming the person trims it and gets that particular cut. Most cuts of beef tenderloin are quite fatty, even when cooked (some more than 70% fat).

And your comment was that any kind of loin is low in fat.

lamb loin isn't low in fat either http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/lamb-ve...products/4780/2

Again, using 1/8" fat cuts.

Here's a page for lamb loin seperable lean only: http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/lamb-ve...products/4552/2

Loin cuts in general are lower in fat than, say, ribs or other cuts of meat from the same animal.

Moreover, the data for these meats are for ones that are broiled. You can easily eliminate a lot more of the fat on a grill or a foreman-type grill.

My point is that there are loin cuts that aren't low in fat. You had previously said all loin is low fat .Some are actually very high in fat. So if one is on a low fat diet, he or she should be on the look out for that.

And even the lean cuts that you have provided have fat contents of 35% and above.

Kiwi - 50

Spinach - 10

With that I am up to 2360 for calories and would like to add food to get up to the 2800 area.

Must be low fat, anti inflammatory or very little inflammatory, and at least moderately low GL.

That's a lot of fruit to be starting out with, IMO. I'd minimize the fruit and slowly increase it over time.
