Short version is I'm wondering how much of the fat cooks off burgers when you grill them?
With summer right around the corner, I'm wondering how much fat is left in say a 4oz raw portion of those crappy but cheap 75/25 walmart patties that are originally 330 cals, 28g fat and 19g protein. When I'm grilling myself, I'll get at least the 85% lean when its on sale, but when going other places It'd be nice to know what I'm actually consuming
I found this study http://www.beefnutrition.org/CMDocs/BeefNutrition/ReducingFatinCookedGroundBeef.pdf
Which is some great news when it comes to making tacos or pasta with meat sauce where you brown the burger into crumbles on the stove, but it doesn't address the cooking method of grilling over charcoal. Anyone found a study for that? Like I said, it'd just be nice to accurately track so I know what those two burgers, few chips and a beer barbeques actually are

September 2012- Made my goal of competing at feather weight for Bjj (under 149 with a little water cut)
Now I'm just trying to maintain around 152ish to leave me in easy cutting range. Also trying to relax and eat more like a normal person now, balancing enjoying life and staying healthy.
