    It looks to me that the sirloin is actually better for you, but I everyone always says sub ground turkey for red meat. Why is that?

    If you can fit the fat content of red meat into your macros it's a good alternative. I use 99% fat free turkey breast so it's quite a bit leaner than the one on the link you provided. Also, it really depends on what red meat you choose. Take a peak at an 85% fat free label and it doesnt look nearly as good. If go red I prefer the 93-96% lean type.

    Agreed. There are leaner and fattier cuts of both meats, so you'd have to be comparing 'apples to apples'.

    93-7 I can deal with that, I season it and add 1tsp tomato sauce and some cooking sherry to keep it moist and flavorful
