Ruby Tuesday Steak [Apr. 20th, 2008|02:05 am]
Weight Watchers for College Kids

Hi everyone.

Okay, so I decided my body needed some red meat for the first time in a looong time...and after looking on Dotti's Weight Loss Zone and realizing that Ruby Tuesday's has a 7 ounce sirloin for 5 points and a 9 ounce sirloin for 6 points, I did it.

I ordered the Petite Sirloin, and had a salad with it. (I didn't eat the sides.)

However, here is my question:

Anywhere else I look, a 3 ounce serving of any kind of sirloin is no less than 3 or 4 points, so how could a 7 ounce steak be only 5 points?

The nutritional information listed on Ruby Tuesday's website is consistent with that on www.dwlz.com. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Thanks!!
~Carrie

Its a trick of the numbers.

typically, 1 oz of meat is 1 point. But, it depends on the fat content.

Also, points go by cooked weight, whereas the menu is raw weight. Its possible for a 7oz raw steak to become 5-6 oz when cooked.
