Hey, so my Local market is having a HUGE sale on extra lean ground beef... 1.50 a lb, I'm thinking about going and buying A LOT... so, I did some research

34 Ounces of Extra Lean Ground beef shows these stats

1120 Calories
36 g Of Fat
16.0 Saturated Fat
and a WHOPPING 192g Protein

If I eat 2lbs of Beef a day ($3.00) I'll still have 2k Cals to get in 40g of Fat (100G Peanuts = 600 Cals) and now 1400 Cals left for carbs is this right?

If so, This seems way to good to be true.. Super happy if this is all correct

192g Protein, 80g of fat, and then the rest in carbs, does that seem reasonable?

I'm on dat dere clean bulk, Prob fill carbs with Spaghetti, Ice Cream, Rice, Bread, Tortilla's, whatever..

This seems correct. I buy 96% lean ground beef which is 150 calories/4oz = 600 calories/lb ~ 1275 for 34 oz. I find this to be the beauty of lean ground meat and chicken - fairly low calories for the volume of food vs lower protein/higher carb options (not intended to hate on carbs, just a point). I can make a taco salad with 1.5 lb chicken for basically the same calories as a large cinnamon roll and it keeps me full much longer

Well while you're doing "dat dere clean bluk" be sure to add a sufficient amount of fruits/veggies! (Wouldn't be clean without them)!! ;)

Clean bulk as in 250-500 calorie surplus, but of course I get dem fruits and veggies! :) Cut em up and throw em in with da beef! I'm so happy Beef is like this, 2lbs of beef is a lot, and after cutting for a year, this is gonna be the start of something beautiful

yeah thats about right - we eat it all the time..its a little drier than juicy fatty beef, but its great for spaghetti sauce, etc, etc...just sauce it up ( cutting :-( )
