A few people here are probably going to point out everything wrong with my situation here, but I'm really just asking for a little insight on one specific issue.
I'm a college student in a dorm, on a meal plan, I only have a mini-fridge/freezer and a microwave, and I've found that an easy source of protein is Great Value 85/15 frozen pure beef patties. I can microwave them very easily, they don't take up a lot of room, and they supplement my meal plan nicely.
When I microwave the patties, the fat/grease ends up pooling in the bottom of the bowl. Since they're obviously CAFO beef, I don't want to consume that stuff. So I pour off the liquid fat twice (after 2 and 3 minutes) and rinse it with water to get the extra dangling bits.
My question: the patty originally had 17 grams fat and 240 calories, so how does pouring off that liquid fat impact the nutritional profile? Its obviously going to be leaner, but can anyone estimate what I'm left with? I know its difficult to estimate without knowing what volume of fat I'm pouring off, but can anyone give it a shot?
