Canadian bacon is better choice

If you eat bacon, choose Canadian bacon to cut down on calories and fat. Grilled Canadian bacon, more like ham, has about 50 calories and 2 grams of fat per ounce (one thick slice). Regular bacon has about 165 calories and 14 grams of fat per ounce (four slices). They are equally high in sodium, however, with 450 milligrams an ounce.
