When I plug it on on livestrong.com calorie counter, 8 ozs of bison is basically the exact same as beef, macronutrients-wise.

This make sense? Phone Post

I might depend on the cut. Are you specifying that? If you are comparing tenderloin or something beef is pretty lean as is. Some of the round roasts too.

that is retarded. ground meat depends on the percentage of the ground...80/20 bison is obviously fattier than 90/10 beef and vice versa.

Not cutting fat, but between all the beef, fish, fish oil, coconut/olive oil, nuts, seeds, and all other sources of fat I consume on a daily basis, sometimes I need to find leaner sources of protein as not to go overboard on fat intake

Even healthy sources of fat, like any other macronutrient, can be over eaten.

I just always assumed that bison was a leaner source of protein.

... you know what they say about assuming. Phone Post

bison

beef

 

http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/beef-products/10526/2

 

both the data is on ground and grass fed (raw).

 

per ounce, bison is about 2 grams less fat, with 1 gram more protein with a few more vitamins as well :)

You need to keep in mind with ground meats that the fat content is pre-cooked. Once it is fully cooked the fat content is much less than before. All ground meats are considered the same way Regular 75/25, Lean 85/15, Extra lean 90/10
