Hi there I am new here
I will actually be starting South Beach Monday but, I'm trying to clear up a few food questions and maybe round up a few Phase 1 recipes (especially for make ahead breakfasts) so I can grocery shop & food prep over the weekend.
Ok, this may sound like a dopey question but the book says you can have ground sirloin. I have no idea what the % of fat in ground sirloin is
I do know that when I try to make a burger or meatloaf out of sirloin it is either dry or it falls apart on the grill
In the markets, you can buy ground beef that is 80% lean or 93% lean and when you grill them they don't fall apart. Does anyone know what % of fat is still acceptable to have in ground beef on South Beach? As a former Atkins follower, who had success & unforunately is plateaued
I have no trouble forfeiting burger buns & breadcrumbs in my meatloaf...I just ask a little moisture in my ground beef to keep it together on the occasions when I do want a burger or meatloaf.
I hope someone knows the answer. Thanks in advance for any guidance.
