Turkey is a great choice for any bodybuilder as it is very low in calories and will give you very little fat content with a high good quality protein that can be easily digested. A small 33 gram piece of Turkey will give you 6 grams of protein with only 1 gram of fat which will only be 34 calories.
If we compare the difference between turkey and beef then you will notice that although turkey will often not give you the same amount of protein per gram that beef will give you there are many advantages of having turkey instead of a beef burger.
If your specific objective is to lose fat then it is recommended by the experts that you should rather select turkey when compared to beef. Turkey will have a lot less sodium and potassium that beef but will have more calcium and more cholesterol than beef with the same weight.
If you do not have a problem with the cost of turkey you can create endless turkey recipes that you will never get bored of but it will need a bit of preparation if you prepare it at home. The turkey recipe selected below gives you 40 grams of protein, which is adequate for any bodybuilding meal.

2 slices of any low-fat Swiss or cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon of olive oil

Then slice the cheese into 4 strips and slice the avocado into 4 long pieces. Then place a strip of cheese on the 4 strips of turkey as well as the avocado and then roll the turkey into a tube.
You the place the turkey rolls that you have made on the frying pan that you have heated with oil and flip them over until they are golden brown on each side when the cheese should be nicely melted. One could add a little salt and pepper to taste and then serve.
