@ HONEYLISSABEE - you're absolutely correct in the statement that there's been no proof of saturated fats contributing to CVD. The research they quote for those recommendations lumped saturated fats together with trans-fats, and it's the latter which were the problem from the outset. Healthy animal (yes, saturated!) fats aren't the killers we're led to believe. In fact, cholesterol itself is a surrogate conclusion, since what they're looking for is what causes CVD, and those risk factors are for homocysteine levels, not TChol. Animal fats, WHOLE milk, bacon, butter... none of those are harmful to CV health. Don't let them alarm you. ;-)
I find a lot of good nutritional data at calorielab.com/index.html
The format can be a bit confusing, as you've already seen. I believe those listings are based upon the USDA standards, which state a lot of "yields-from."
Here's a link to their "turkey leg, with skin, bone removed": calorielab.com/foods/turkey/turkey-young-t
This does say "yield from," but it also lists the gram weight, which you should be able to measure or estimate.
If you're off a small amount, I think it hardly matters unless you're eating a bushel of turkey legs! LOL
Happy T-day. Hope you survive those yummy drumsticks!
...save me some skin

...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
