Today, I am having chili. A lb of ground beef. I can leave all the grease in there, or strain it off, or even rinse it off in water to get rid of as much of it as I can. I have read articles on SP about this maybe cutting 40% of the fat. Opinions vary. I choose to just count the fat that it started out with, even though I strain some fat/grease out. It just isn't worth thinking about. I could find info on the meat cooked, but then i would have to weigh it cooked.
I may lose a few calories, and fat, but it just is too much hassle to be this detailed. I would just put in bacon, and use whatever macros, the SP tracker gives you, or what's on the side of the box. The meal sounds awesome by the way.
I think this is why we have ranges though. If you aim for the upper half, and actually lose some bacon fat, then maybe you will end up in the middle of your ranges. Obviously you would not want to barely make your range, and then maybe be low for the day in calories/fat. Since the range is 350 calories, a little bit of bacon fat isn't going to push you out of range. You may save 5 grams of fat, and that may be 45 calories, but it isn't going to have a huge effect on you.
