    So, if one were to do this with the following, what is the final % if one were to follow the procedure on


    Or as least a close approx.

    roughly under half the fat left, so no worse than
    90/10 - > 95/5
    85/15 - > 93/7
    70/30 - > 85/15

    and possibly even less fat than those...

    That only works if you want your beef well done. I prefer mine medium-rare, so the 93% lean is the only option for me

    true, but when i am doing the volume food for day to day, the ability to make up 5lbs of beef at once and store it in the fridge a week is worth more to me than enjoying it

I mean it cant be adding anymore calories beside the cheese correct? The only reason I ask this is because I have been on a strict routine with what I eat but over the weekend I was at my sisters and she had a left over hamburger in the fridge and I was starving so i just took it out and eat it and it was actually real good. let me know fellas....the beef i always use is just regular ground meat from the butcher!
    You guys gotta try Bubba Burgers. They are sold in the frozen section of most supermarkets. I know I know..a frozen burger? Well..holy ****...one of the juiciest burgers I have ever had. Probably not the healthiest but rank very high in the flavor department.

    Some info from one of my resources regarding lean meats:
    The USDA figures one of the leanest beef cuts to be double bone sirloin steak.
    A 12 oz sirloin, dry broiled and trimmed, yields 6.6 oz of meat, including 1.8 oz of fat. When you exclude the 107 grams of water content (57%) which has 0 calories, the lean meat left is 61 grams. The fat left is 19 grams including 9 grams of saturated fat. Lean meat (protein) is 4 calories per gram, fat is 9 calories per gram..so this works out as:

    Fat - 19 grams x 9 calories=171 calories=41%
    Protein - 61 grams x 4 calories=244 calories=59%
    Total - 415 calories

    So...one of the best lean cuts is still 41 % fat. 19.5 % saturated fat. That's way above the government health reccommendations of 30 % total fat, 10% saturated fat. All other cuts of beef are even fattier. Pork is worse.

    Note: The book is a few years old so those government reccomendations may have changed. Hope this tidbit provides some insight and something to ponder on.

  8. i am so hungry right now
