Many women with PCOS who are watching their weight choose white meat because of its lower calorie content, though the difference with dark meat is, in fact, minuscule.
According to the Department of Agriculture, an ounce of boneless, skinless turkey breast, for example, contains about 46 calories and 1 gram of fat, compared with roughly 50 calories and 2 grams of fat for an ounce of boneless, skinless thigh.
It is true that dark meat contains saturated fat. But there are also healthy fats in the dark variety, including Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Compared with white meat, dark also contains more iron, zinc, riboflavin, thiamine and vitamins B6 and B12.
Both white and dark have less fat than most cuts of red meat, however, so you can’t really go wrong with the former, provided you eat only moderate amounts.
