I use the US Department of Agriculture nutrients database. According to them, the calories in a pound of raw beef that's been broiled is 770 calories for 85% and 712 calories for 90%. Here's the link, You can use it online or download it to your computer for use anytime. It doesn't take too long and if you're on a serious diet, it's a big help.

http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcom...SR17/sr17.html

Be careful using it, though. You have to be very specific in choosing the right item for nutritional info as there are a lot of options and you have to be sure you get the right one or it can screw you up big time.

Good luck and enjoy those burgers!

Happy 4th!

I'm gonna cook me up some steaks for the 4th. I'm fortunate enough to work for one of the best restaurants in the state, so I get my steaks, freshly cut, at cost- and we're not talkin' no choice stuff, neither! Real prime beef.

Still, nothin' wrong with a good burger, either.
