Calories in Chicken and Meat
For most of us, meat is an important source of valuable cell building proteins, necessary dietary fats, vitamins and minerals. Little wonder then that when we surveyed the items commonly entered into our online food diaries, meat products feature highly.
Our list shows how many calories in a selection of chicken and meat products.
Bacon, Back, Dry Fried or Grilled
With just 72 calories in an average rasher of bacon, it's easy to see why our members rated it as number 3 in their list of popular foods, while visitors to our website rated it as their number 8.
Calories in 100g of back bacon:
Calories in a rasher of bacon (25g): 72kcal
With the highest carbs per 100g, both members and visitors prefer a pork sausage to a beefy banger. However, this may have something to do with the limited availability of beef sausages in the supermarket.
Calories in 100g of sausage:
Calories in a beef sausage (60g): 151kcal
Chicken Breast, Roasted, Traditional, Tesco
Prepacked chicken breast may be a quick and easy option for lunch, but remember to check the label for excess salt and extra additives.
Calories in 100g of chicken breast:
Calories in ½ pack chicken breast (123g): 193kcal
Prefer to Keep Track on Paper?
Time and again research has shown that people who keep a food diary are more successful at losing weight - but not everyone wants to use an online diary, for some of us it's just easier to scribble stuff down. Here's an easy and very economical way to do it
Chicken Breast, Roast, Fillets, Skinless
Number one with members and visitors alike, fresh chicken breast has the lowest fat content of the fresh meats, and, being a white meat, it's a healthier option.
Calories in 100g of breast fillet:
Calories in a breast fillet (140g): 204kcal
Beef Steak, Fillet, Cooked, Average
Fortunately a fillet steak needs very little doing to it in order to enjoy the flavour, so you don't bump up the calories with extra dressings and sauces. Interestingly, a juicy steak is more popular with our visitors than our members - perhaps due to members being aware of the amount of red meat they are eating when entered into their food diaries.
Calories in 100g of fillet steak:
Calories in 200g of fillet steak: 382kcal
Gravy, Beef, Fresh, Sainsbury's
The traditional sauce to accompany your Sunday roast, a typical serving contains the lowest amount of protein in our list.
Calories in 100g of gravy:
Calories in a serving (83ml): 46.8kcal

This particular brand has the lowest amount of fat per 100g and was in the top 10 favourites for both members and visitors.
Calories in 100g of ham:
Calories in a slice (30g) of ham: 34.5kcal
Lamb Kebab, Greek Style, Sainsbury's
With the second highest amount of carbs per 100g, this lamb kebab also has a bit more fibre than the other items in our list. It's a great way to serve lamb - and even better if you make your own and add extra veg.
Calories in 100g of kebab:
Calories in a kebab (70g): 196kcal
Lamb Chop, Pan Fried, Asda*
With the second highest amount of calories and fat per 100g, and the second highest calorie value per serving, this is perhaps why our visitors rank it number 19 in their list of favourite meats; members didn't even rate it in their top 30.
Calories in 100g of lamb chop:
Calories in 150g of lamb chop: 369kcal
Pork Chop, Grilled, Asda*

Pork Sausage, Grilled

Calories in a slice of roast beef (35g): 47.7kcal
