    I've always wondered this. If I buy 7% ground beef and it says it has 8 grams of fat per serving, is that number still the same if I cook it well and drain all the grease/fat?

    What Chris3G said..just go by the basic nutritional info.

    Calorie counts are all approximate anyways :o

    Should say on the label usually whether the counts are for dry/cooked, etc. If they don't, I think you can assume it's just for the product as-packaged.

    Course, then you can go look it up on calorieking or fitday or nutritiondata and get the differing counts for it.

    If you cook it and drain it ... it will have alot less fat than it did before being cooked
