    Top Round is pretty good - I eat it constantly. Sirloin is already fairly lean.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    Not part of a cow, but similar: I get buffalo (you may know it as bison). Nice and lean, really red. And cheap - at least where I live. Ground buffalo has less than half the fat of extra lean ground beef and it costs the same as regular ground beef.

    Where the heck are you finding bison for the same price as ground beef? Either I'm paying way too much, or the ground beef at your stores is expensive.

    Lean Meat!

    I try to eat wild game as much as I can. Elk is my favorite then Deer (Venison). Pheasant is also great! (all White meat)
