    Lean Beef Mince

    I have began eating at work, along with my two chicken and rice meals a meal of 250g beef mince (from the butcher) cous cous and 100g brocolli.

    will eating this amount of beef mince (one every day of the week so 7 meals) contribute to uneccessary fat gain? I began eating this meal on Friday just gone so 22nd May and I am starting to feel alittle more portly and watery around the lower stomach.

    I have also since saturday been on "emergancy" protein powder (Holland & Barratt which has sweetners in it)

    do you think either or both have contributed to this added weight? Also any advice/observations on the mince meal would be really helpful

    Cheers!

    I eat lean minced beef every day. It's carbs that'll make you fat quicker than any animal protein/fat. Just keep an eye on your total calories, and you can't go too far wrong with some beef in your diet.

    Re: Lean Beef Mince

    I was wondering this yesterday.

    Been eating a fair bit of turkey mince, which I assumed was low in fat, however after checking the nutritional values on the net I'm not sure.

    Anybody got any opinions on turkey??

    well I find that lean minced beef is often not very lean, I only have it a couple of times a week, I would say that it is probably not the best thing for losing weight to have 250g every day.

    Re: Lean Beef Mince

    What is up with you people. Why do you all worry about fat in your diet? Apart from the fact that it is calorie dense and bumps up calories easily. IMO fat is not the baddy it is made out to be, refined carbs is the true baddy. Can someone provide me with any solid evidence that saturated animal fats causes obisity and or heart disease, because it's all a flippin' myth.

    It's not the matter of having fat in my diet, it's how much I'm having.

    Just always thought turkey was a low fat meat, however starting to doubt this

    The above link gives the opposite end of the argument about fats. Very interesting reading indead. Also recommend Barry Groves Book 'Trick and Treat' or Gary Taubes 'Good Calories bad Calories' You should educate yourselves about the big FAT lie.

    Depends where the meat comes from, breast meat is very lean, the leg and thigh is quite fatty.

    Re: Lean Beef Mince

    Well I hope not as I have 4 meals which contain lean beef mince made into burgers

    I've never had a problem.. If you feel your getting a bit fat don’t cut the calories just do some PWO cardio. Then assess your carbohydrate intake.

    Re: Lean Beef Mince

    We can learn a lot about body composition by looking at a turkey. The wing and breast are lean and white, and leg and thigh is red and fatty. White/Fast twitch fibres in wing and chest from anearobic short bursts attempting to fly, and Red/Slow twitch fibres in leg and thigh from walking around all day. Yet more evidence that anaerobic type exercise causes bigger and leaner muscles. Heheheheheehe

    Re: Lean Beef Mince

    Lean mince is no problem whatsoever as long as it is decent quality and the overall diet picture is considered.

    I prep on lean with lean steak mince as a staple (get it from morrisons, app 10g of fat per 100g raw wieght), and if I am really trimming everywhere I can, I get the "extra" lean which is approx half the fat again - ie just as lean as high quality cuts of meat...

    As said above, fat is not the primary enemy...
    every prick and his dog has to have a "protocol" these days - but hey, makes it sound like we know what we are doing, right?" me, 2011

    Read my sh1t journal! Or just come and take the pi$$!!! Drugs, women, booze and occasional gayness!

    Re: Lean Beef Mince

    The mince is use is from the butchers (so is all my meat for that matter) so i dont loose any of the liquid **** that the supermarkets pump into it. My mince doesnt taste, look, feel or let of any oily fat etc so thats not a concern of mine.

    Its prob the carbs. Thanks BIGJOE for your responses. They`ve really helped put my mind at rest.

    Goose - Could I grab your recipe for those brugers? Id be interested in giving them ago on friday
