    Depends on your size, your activity level, your goals, your genetics etc etc.


    It also depends on how much you eat.

    7% fat for a 300 GRAM serve = 21g of fat and that is more than enough for anyone. 7% fat from a 50 GRAM serve = 2.5g of fat and that is not a lot of energy....


    However, the protein in the beef will also be used as energy - so it is not as easy to say.



    (ps: I hope you are eating vegetables with that! ).

    A lot of variables here. You do have to consider that protein has the highest thermic effect of food, and somewhere around 30% of the calories you obtain from protein will be used simply to digest that food and convert it to glucose if need be. That saps a good chunk of the energy you obtained from that meal right there.

    All in all that sounds like a pretty lame meal to me. I would get some kind of vegetable and carbohydrate source with that...
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
