    I too am struggling with post menopausal weight gain.. I'm a few years younger than you but had a hysterectomy and was plunged straight into the menopause. It's not been much fun.😖

    Ribeye steak here. They taste great, but they are fatty. An occasional indulgence when I'm tired of eating tuna and chicken.

    Really depends what you're looking for and how you want to prepare it.

    It's hard to beat a rare to medium rare ribeye with minimal preparation. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and let come to room temperature. Light the coals. For one steak, I light 17 to 23 coals depending on temperature and wind - I use a chimney starter. When the coals are right, cook on one side for about five minutes, turn once and cook another four or five minutes, then plate, add a little butter, cover with foil, and let sit ten minutes.

    Ribeye is a tender cut; it's very marbled with fat.

    NY Strip is from a similar part of the animal, but is less marbled. It does have a "strip" of fat on one side that you won't eat; that's fine. It adds flavor. It's also pretty tender and doesn't take much prep. It's a little lower on the calories because of the lower marbling.

    Top Sirloin is a leaner choice. If you don't mind it being a little less tender. Also pretty darn good steak and lower calories.

    If you choose leaner and leaner cuts, they can be a little tougher. Sirloin tip can benefit from a little marinade. Same with a cross-rib steak. They can also be quite tasty, but just a bit less tender.

    Then there's the ever-popular T-bone. The big side is a ribeye, and the small side is a tenderloin. Mmmm.

    I'm not a big fan of tenderloin on its own. Yes, it's really tender. It doesn't have as much flavor, though.

    Good luck!

    This is all newer to me. For about 30 years, I didn't eat animals. It was kind of funny when working in a restaurant to help pay for college, I got "promoted" to the grill. I was great with salads, sandwiches, pasta, and dessert. But the steaks and burgers kept coming back because they weren't cooked right. I had no clue. Now I have a clue.

    I inherited a smoker a month or so ago, so I've been experimenting with that. It makes really tasty things.

    Hello everyone! Ribeye for me all the way. I'm 55 and am an ex fitness junky. I injured a foot and developed CRPS, so the most I can do now is walk. Luckily I love walking! I have some lbs to shed - felt sorry for myself, ate lots of chocolate, and stayed in bed for about a year. Fortunately, I recovered from my depression and now I'm up and moving and have fitness goals once again. :smiley:

    Hi I’m Michelle. I’m soon to be 48 and I’m attempting to lose 60+ pounds. I’m at 18 pounds down and I’m hopping to maintain. I got this app so that I could see what I was eating and hopefully it would help me loss then maintain.
