How can I reduce the calories I get from red meat?

Keri Gans
Nutrition & Dietetics
Here are some tips to get less calories from red meat:
  • Enjoy red meat twice a week. If you choose extra lean cuts, and stick to the appropriate serving size, you can eat it three times a week.
  • A serving of beef is about 3 ounces—the size of a deck of cards.
  • More often than not, choose loin or round cuts.
  • Try bison—it is much lower in fat than many cuts of beef.
  • Broil or grill rather than panfry.
  • Drain the excess fat from ground beef before you add it to a sauce.
  • Leftovers count toward your two servings per week.
  • If you order a red-meat entrée served with a sauce, request the sauce on the side.
