So I was crunching numbers tonight, and I could slash my costs for dinners nearly in half by switching to protein shakes instead of actual steak…I’d be giving up about 150 calories roughly, but I’d also be eliminating roughly 20 grams of fat as well.
(These numbers are based on 12 oz. of top round steak separable lean & fat, trimmed to 0", being replaced by 5 scoops of protein). Is there any reason NOT to do this?
I know that meat has other nutrients in it…but if I could replace them with the other food I eat, then what would the downside of doing this be?
