How to Make a Healthy Hamburger and Save 400 Calories
2. How to Slim Down Your Hamburger Patty
The problem with many premade burgers is that they’re way too big. Many weigh in at a hefty 6 ounces, delivering 11 grams of saturated fat and 460 calories.
What to Do If You’re a Guest:
The solution is simple when you’re presented with an enormous burger: Cut it in half! By reducing your burger to a healthy 3-ounce portion, you can eliminate 203 calories. And you can save even more if you make the burger patties yourself.
What to Do If You’re Hosting:
By making your own burger patties, you can control how big they are and how lean they are—while still making them taste great! Try making 4-ounce (raw) patties with 90%-lean beef. You’ll slash 231 calories and 6 grams of saturated fat from the menu.
