It says that I can't have any high fat meat like bacon, sausage,and hot dogs. But my question is what if it is all lean Turkey bacon, sausage, and hotdogs. Or does it make a difference?

I think that would be a question for your nutritionist. That being said, I eat turkey bacon on occasion but turkey sausage still has a lot of fat in it. I don’t eat hot dogs so I have no advice on that at all.

If you simply must eat bacon, sausage or hot dogs, the lean varieties are better that the normal varieties.

But, as to whether they suit your plan, you must consult your plan, and if it's not there, the plan's author.

Good luck,

The weight loss period is perfect for changing old food habits, trying new things & looking for better, healthier options. There are lots of unprocessed lean meat, & seafood or plant-based Protein options available you could try.

That saying, I lost the taste for a lot of things in the first four or so months but I found I could eat thin pork sausages which I bought from my local butcher who’s very good. He makes them using real meat & little else. Mass produced sausages tend to be made from the fatty off cuts, gristle, lots of meal, preservatives, artificial flavours, nitrates, etc.

I’d eat 1/2 sausage as one of my lunch options maybe twice a week. Cooked a couple of sausages at a time in dry in a non stick pan, cut them in half & froze the individual portions. Easy. My dietician was okay with me including them in my diet because they were freshly made by a butcher. See what your nutritionalist says.
