Where do you find calories for odd meats?

I know it is not Calorie In/Calorie out -- but I just want to track what fills me up-- calorie wise. I bought some Bison Liverwurst (YUMM) but trying to figure out how many calories say 1 0z is? I know it is leaner than pork or beef liver. What would be your guesstamation -- I am thinking around 75 cal per oz?

Also, as a total calorie counter, you still can't let yourself get hung up on the specifics. I try to find the closest thing and just go with it. I know that it's not exact. I figure I am off anywhere from 50/100 calories each day just based on estimates and stuff.

You're mostly out of luck for prepared and traditional foods, such as liverwurst, since their contents will vary greatly.

It's also difficult for fatty cuts of meat.
For example, I slow cook fatty lamb roasts regularly. The fat contents varies greatly depending on the lamb and the cut. Also, since I reserve the fat/stock/gelatin there is absolutely no way to know the nutrition data.


p.s. Just make sure it's free of the bad stuff. Then eat up!

I always just google and then review the results for a site that I find trustworthy.

I found buffalo liverwurst listed here: http://www.americangourmet.net/bison-nutritional-information.aspx

1/3 cup is 90 calories.
