Lamb - is there a reason it's not on the preferred list?

Just refreshing my memory on the Slow-Carb-Diet part 1 RULE #2 Eat the same meals over and over again.

Tim lists:

    *Eggs

    *Chicken Breast/Thigh

    *Beef

    *Fish

    Pork

Is there a reason why lamb is not also on that list?

(I'm cooking for 5 today - making it SCD without them knowing - but have a large (lean) lamb leg as the centrepiece)

Thanks

After a very, very brief search, I would imagine it's OK. I usually check the webpage http://nutritiondata.self.com when checking something new. Without knowing more specifically what type of lamb it is, it seems to be OK. Lamb leg looks to be about 20g of protein per 100g, which is nice, with little or no carbohydrate calories, though it can be quite high in fat by the looks of things.

    I would agree that it's ok to eat for your dinner, but I wouldn't make a habit of fixing it due to the high fat content.

I think he doesn't mention Lamb as it's not as popular as the big three (Beef, Chicken Pork) It's pretty close in calorie/fat/protein profile to beef, also absent is Goat which is one of the best meats out there from a fat to protein ratio point of view.

Just noticed how old this is...
