  1. I made these burgers last night...good or no good?


    96% fat free beef patty
    150 cals
    20g protein each

    Whole Grain Buns
    200 cals
    36g carbs
    2g fat
    10g protein

    All I added was onions, tomato, mustard and ketchup (no mayo)

    I ate two of them, are these okay post workout?


  2. The kcals on the burgers don't add up. It should be closer to 120, but it's a decent post-training meal. Throw in some additional fruit and it would be golden.

    96% beef should have a higher amount of protein and a lower amount of fat. The fat should only be 4% of the total weight (4g per 100g), but the nutrition listed on here indicates it has somewhere between 8-9g of fat per 4 oz (FYI, 4 oz ~ 113g).

    Well it does say 4g of fat

  9. I'm gonna check again today when I get home to make sure, cus I could be mistaken. But I'm sure it has 150 cals and it's 96% fat free

  10. 4g fat~36 kcals
    20g protein~80 kcals

    ~116 per 4 oz.

    Something is missing.

    Ah I see what your saying, so it's either higher in protein or higher in fat right?

    Kilocalories (kcal) it's 1,000 calories. The 'calories' you view on nutrition facts are actually kilocals, labeled incorrectly.

    Meat packaging is weird like that... The FDA actually allows for a claim such as 96% fat free to have more than 4% fat - because they allow a small portion of fat to be present in the lean portion of the meat (and remain uncounted). Its confusing, and completely whack...

    There is some turkey they sell at my grocery that is supposed to be 95% fat free, but has more fat grams than protein grams.

  17. Okay so I was wrong each pattie has 25g protein

    Its not a big deal. The "Nutrition Facts" still are accurate... just don't always trust the % Lean or % Fat Free... Ground Beef is good protein, keep at it.

    so long as its slow digesting (whole grain, wheats), its all good. fast digesting carbs i only use in two scenarios :
    1 - post workout
    2 - 20 minutes prior to training for that extra energy

  22. Suncloud's got it... Sounds like you are just lifting to get stronger / bigger... carbs are your friend - just don't overdo it. If that is high quality whole grain, you're in good shape... plus its straight after your workout. Solid meal overall.

    How many grams of carbs should I be eating daily? Just to have a rough idea so I don't worry that I'm doing too much/too little

    That's not an easy question to answer... Depends on your goals... Your flat metabolic rate for the day... how much protein and fat you're taking in...

    I'd say if you're lean bulking around your weight, 200g should be comfortable.
