lean ground beef point question

Recommended Posts

I bought lean ground beef at the store and it does not have nutritional information on it. I've been looking to figure out points I want to make a meat sauce tonight for supper. But according to the book, it depends on the fat levels. How does everyone else count point for ground beef. Any help would be appreciated.

Even though your beef doesn't have the ni on the package, doesn't it say what the % of fat is? That's what you would need to determine how lean the beef is. If it doesn't have that and just says "lean beef" I'd go with 85%, which is 2 points per oz uncooked.

According to the WW book:

 

95%/5% fat-------------------13 pts uncooked

90%/10%---------------------17 pts uncooked

85%/15%---------------------19 pts uncooked

80%/20%---------------------21 pts uncooked

75%/25%---------------------22 ots uncooked

 

Hope that helps.

I know this is off subject a little, but I think now I like the lean ground turkey better than beef, I use it for spagetti and all kinds of meat sauce for pastas.

I bought the 93% fat free ground beef and 4 oz is 4 points. I got ground turkey too and it was the same, 4 plts for 4 oz. Some stomachs are sensative to ground turkey so for the same points, I stick w/ the ground beef. I get 6 lb portions at BJS and freeze 3- 3 lb portions and then 6 - 1/2 lb portions.

I buy the 93% lean ground beef from Costco in the 1lb. chubs. It comes out to be 1 point for every ounce. Not too bad. Enjoy your sauce. :bcb_wink3
