I've always been told that Salmon is one of the best meats you can eat when working out. However, I never really looked at what the reasoning was behind it. Just now, I got inspired to take a look... and it sounds like it has more to do with providing more goodness, with less calories.
6oz steak: Calories: 487, Total Fat: 16.7, Carbs: 0, Protein: 42g
6oz salmon: Calories: 300, Total Fat: 9g, Carbs: 0g, Protein: 46g
My question is, is there more to it then these macros? I'm wondering whether to replace my steak dinners with salmon dinners to cut cars on cardio days (HIITS), where I likely need less calories then a day I am lifting.
