Evidence suggests that pork is 16% leaner and has 27% less saturated fat than it did 15 years ago (I told you they have been feeding and raising hogs differently than yesteryear). A USDA analysis (funded in part by the National Pork Board) found that a 3-ounce serving of pork tenderloin contains 2.98* grams of fat compared to 3.03* grams in a 3-ounce serving of skinless boneless chicken breast.
Not a significant difference, but if you are tired of chicken, then give the pork tenderloin a try. A 3-ounce serving of center cut pork loin (trimmed of fat) is a good substitute for the tenderloin.
* grilled or broiled, no additional marinades or sauces.
