Beef Chart

Beef Chart


When using my recipes and meal plans you can sub a different cut of steak, but the fat ratios will change. Here is a beef chart of cuts of steak ranging from the fattiest cut to the leanest.

Also note, if the animal is grain fed vs grass fed will change the fat content.

NOTE: My favorite part of eating steak is the tasty fatty sauces you get to use to make the meal ketogenic such as my tasty Bearnaise!

    Very helpful! Do you know of a similar chart for cuts of pork?

  • Debra says:

    Love this, thanks to Craig, I love visual charts.

  • Mariam says:

    Wow, this is a great chart. No wonder I love rib steaks! I am now hoping you have similar charts for other types of meat that you will be posting in the near future! What a wonderful resource your entire site is- Thank you.

    wow, thank you so much for this chart. very helpful.. congratulations to your client with the pant sizes in the photo up there. great idea… happy for her and I would love to know who her doctor is. all doctors that I have gone to say what I am doing wouldn’t work and tried to shove diet pills down my throat. 70 pounds lighter, feeling great, but still no doctor. never been more satisfied. thank you maria for all you do. by the way I love my shampoos and conditioners and the oil for my skin. great stuff.

    FYI, the point cut of brisket not shown here is about 70% fat. Yummy.

  • Diane says:

    This is amazing. Thanks for this!

  • Looks like the ribs are the best part?

  • Mary says:

    Great resource! Thanks so much.

  • Kim says:

    Sine I am not supposed to eat eggs or dairy it is hard for me to figure out how to add fat to my meat

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      There are oils (like my super salad dressing) that can be added. Or a high fat side or dessert (like a fat bomb). 🙂

  • Susie says:

    You also need a chart for lamb! We eat tons of grassfed lamb and love it!

    I recently discovered a blog page that lists the insulinogenic rates of different foods (broken down by classification), and now I know why my husband gets excellent BG results whenever we eat ribeye or NY strip steaks. Besides them both being about 15% insulinogenic, they’re near the top in fat content (according to your graphic)!

    Hi Maria! Just wondering what I should do to get back on the low carb wagon. I have been eating between 40g and 150g for the past two weeks when I usually eat under 25g
