Bacon: PreCooked vs. Traditional

Face it, with BLT season upon us, the prospect of bacon on your weight loss plan doesn't really look good. But consider this. Pre cooked bacon can have about half of the fat and calories of the traditional cook-yourself kind. Ok, so you won't get the grease splatters on your stove, and the smell of cooking bacon is really appealing, but consider this:

Oscar Meyer pre cooked bacon (4 slices) 70 calories, 6 grams of fat (2 pts)

Oscar Meyer traditional bacon (2 slices) 60 calories, 5 grams of fat (2 points)
The Hormel brand is 2 1/2 slices for 2 points

The pre-cooked can be expensive, but look for different brands on sale and coupons too.
