Trimming beef, lamb and pork of fat reduces calories simply by lowering the amount of fat. From a health standpoint this is key because there is clear proof that consuming fewer calories in the form of saturated fat lowers the risk of heart attack and stroke.
There is not much cholesterol in the fat, though. It is found in the meat itself, so the amount of cholesterol is fairly similar in most cuts of meat. Each ounce of red meat has about 25 mg of cholesterol.
