Default Best, Cheapest Steaks? great for strongman/ bodybuilding?

What is the leanest steaks that are the cheapest?

Is Beef Bottom Round Steak or Beef top round Healthier?

I am looking at 8oz raw for a meal?


or do you guys have any other preference with the same price tag that might be healthier, like a beef sirloin tip steak??


and can you include the nutritional value for each steak? for 1lb, or 8oz, either one?

I'm not really sure about stats of regular steaks but for convenience and taste I usually grab a box of No Name Steaks. Otherwise I go to our local meat market, they usually have great specials.

I am on a clean diet and only eating the leanest meats.. these are the only two allowed for me regarding steak:

Top round steak
Top sirloin steak

Hope that helps - and yes, calorieking.com ... you can look up the stats there!

Some stores label things differently. With beef, the eyeball method is pretty foolproof. The absolute leanest I have seen is "eye of round". At the local Asian markets it is often on sale and is like a round tube of all lean meat.
