    70% Lean Ground Beef Macros after Boiling and Draining

    It's a lot cheaper to buy 70/30 bulk ground beef which has 350 calories, 30 grams of fat, 19 grams of protein, and 0 carbs than leaner beef. $10 for 5 pounds!

    Of course, it has too much fat, so I like to cook it then drain it. Then cook it some more in water then drain it again.

    Does anyone know a more or less accurate way to guess the macros?

    I know that it still can't have 30 grams of fat. Also, it comes out looking leaner than 93% lean ground beef which has 170 calories, 8 grams of fat, and 23 grams of protein. Could this method be reducing fat grams to less than 8 grams?

    If so, why doesn't everyone do this?

    I came across this. http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/re...groundbeef.htm

    70% ground beef cooked and drained has 155 calories, 9 grams of fat, and 19 grams of protein still. That's 50 cents per 4 ounce serving versus paying $1 or more per serving for leaner cuts.

    who wants to eat a piece of ground beef that has been cooked then boiled?

    But I'm buying all free range organic now so I think we are at opposite ends of the spectrum here.
