Counting Calories In Beef

Written by Diet Bites


Excellent Source for Protein, Vitamins & Minerals

Please note that although red meats generally provide good amounts of zinc, iron, vitamin B-12 and protein - red meats can also provide extreme amounts of fat and cholesterol.  

Therefore, drain thoroughly, cook in the microwave to extinguish fat, braise with low calorie/low fat glazes and sauces, keep the portion sizes small and do not cook in oil.  

Be sure and add vegetables high in fiber to help offset the fat content and to strengthen your fight against cancer.

Foods that contain a good dose of fiber grams also assist in quelling the appetite for longer periods of time in comparison to foods lacking fiber.

The following nutritional values are based on three ounces of cooked meat unless otherwise noted - lean selections only with visible fat trimmed and removed.

Calories In Beef

BEEF SELECTION

NUTRITION NOTES

CALORIES

Beef Liver

Rich in zinc and iron.  Eat with steamed onions to offset fat and cholesterol as beef liver is devoid of fiber. Liver absorbs hormones fed to cattle; the older the species, the higher accumulation.   High in cholesterol.  Should be avoided by individuals with gout.

Blade Roast

Excellent source of zinc, rich in heme iron.  Half the fat is saturated.

213

Bottom Round Roast

Rich in zinc (promotes blood clotting/assists white blood cells in fighting off infection/speeds wound healing). High in cholesterol.

178

Brisket

Zinc enriched.

206

Good source of protein and zinc.

143
