    Ground Beef

    Im looking for the marcos in Extra Lean Ground Beef. My grocer said their in 10% or less fat. I also rinse the beef in hot water when done cooking-the meat is rather dry. Fitday just says extra lean beef say 30P, and 20F. Anyone know any different?

    Sounds about right to me, most of that cooks off though!

    I can very easily stay relatively lean on red meat.

    No thats not right. My ground beef is extra lean and its 93% fat free.
    4 oz or 1/2 cup cooked
    21g Protein
    8g Fat

    If you drain it in hot water after cooking you can cut it down even further.

    At 10%, you prolly have 10g per serving.

    1 cup=42g protein? Why do you think fitday says its 30g protein for 1 cup? What do you think is right?

    Fitday is not always accurate, unfortuantely.
    Its best to go by the package when in doubt. If your supermarrket says it 10% lean or better, I would go with my stats Yes, 42g p and 20g fat per cup for your meat. You can cut the fat by 1/3-1/2 by draining all the fat.

    No probs

    BTW, fitday says 30g protein for one cup because their calories are coming from more fat, hence making less protein per serving

    That's how I've been counting my extra lean ground beef
    1/2 cup = 8g Fat
    but that's 2 oz. cooked and the protein 15 g per 1/2 cup

    I asked this before, what if you grill the ground beef, how much fat would you have left from 4 oz. cooked/grilled beef?

    Sara says 2oz = 1/2 cup = 15P 8F
    Leslie says 4oz = 1/2 cup = 21P, 8F

    Should we go with the scale / size when measuring? Im confused
