Portion control plays a central role in managing your daily calories, and beef portions are no exception. The American Heart Association recommends consuming no more than 6 ounces of lean meat, fish or poultry per day. Lean beef is rich in high quality protein and contains essential nutrients, such as iron, zinc and B vitamins. In the right amounts, lean beef can fit into a healthy diet without the worry of adding excess calories.

Controlling Calories

When it comes to cuts of beef, the loin is lower in fat and calories than some other cuts. The T-bone steak is a tender cut taken from the short loin in the rear of the cattle. While the idea of having a big juicy piece of steak may seem tantalizing, it's better to control your portions. A good serving size for beef is 3 ounces, which is about the size of a deck or cards. A 3-ounce serving of T-bone steak with all of the fat trimmed off contains 210 calories, 5 grams of saturated fat and 6 grams of unsaturated fat. Trim any visible fat from your steak and choose cooking methods such as grilling, which don't require adding oil.
