According to Self magazine, there are 776 calories left in ground turkey after 1 pound is cooked. Of those 776 calories, 391 calories come solely from the 43 grams of fat in the meat, which account for 67 percent of the daily caloric intake of a 2,000-calorie diet.
Cooked ground turkey contains more calories than the same amount of ground chicken, which only has 656 calories, according to Self. One key difference, however, is that ground chicken contains 336 calories of fat for the same amount of cooked meat as the ground turkey. That is a 14 percent decrease in fat when compared to the turkey.
