If you are watching your intake of calories, sodium and fats, you will want to avoid bacon. This tasty pork product is high in all of these three categories. One slice of pan-fried, cured pork bacon has 41 calories, 188 mg of sodium and one gram of saturated fat. The breakdown of the fat in bacon is 14.6 mg of omega 3 fatty acids which are the good fats but 318 mg of omega 6 fatty acids which are the fats that need to be limited for good health.
