Bacon is beloved but it's not health food. Just two slices of pork bacon can have about 80 calories, 7 grams of fat (about a third saturated), and 200 to 400 milligrams of sodium. Turkey bacon cuts those numbers in half but taste is cut too, our tests show. Bacon comes in regular and thick-sliced uncooked bacon, precooked bacon, and turkey bacon.
