Fast facts on turkey
- Dark turkey meat usually has more vitamins than light meat. Dark turkey meat also contains more fat than light meat which is better for us keto people in the long run.
- Make sure to cook all turkey meat until it has an internal temperature of 165º Fahrenheit.
- Pasture-raised turkeys are better for you due to them containing more omega 3 than factory farmed turkeys.
- Most of the fat content in turkeys is in the skin. This is why the crispy turkey skin is the best part in my keto opinion.

Turkey is very high in protein and when you eat protein it fills you up. When you eat a lot of protein it will help to increase the feeling of satiety. This helps keep you from overeating and you will feel fuller longer.
Getting enough protein helps maintain lean muscle mass and keep insulin levels stable after meals. Protein is, however, the one nutrient that most meat-eaters are already getting in sufficient amounts. (Source)
