    I can answer the last part: DOWN.

    To the OP, you should be able to *estimate* it using most food trackers (Food journal for the Paleo Diet - PaleoTrack is what I use). Just select the cut of beef and select 'trimmed to 0" fat' for the cut and select the weight and it should give you a good idea.

    Beef, rib, eye, small end (ribs 10-12), separable lean and fat, trimmed to 0" fat, choice, raw <-- I use this a lot

    To OP: If you wanna add fat to steak saute onion and mushrooms in as much butter as you like ( I take 2-4 tablespoons). Poor the whole bit over your steak.

    This is exactly what my dinner menu looks like tonite. Beef tenderloin is too lean for my tastes.
    To OP: You can either supplement your meal with another type of fat (as mentioned), or just trim off the fatty edges and don't worry about it. Depending on the type of steak and how the marbling looks, there will be still some fat in it, but even the online nutrition databases are a rough estimate, at best.

    If you want to eat more fat, just eat more fat. A few spoons of butter or coconut oil a day taken by spoon will do the trick. Or you can just fry your food in it.

    I don't know about all trackers, but googling for "calories in ____________" (fill in cut of steak) will often lead you to nutritional info like gms of fat. And since CW is stll anti-fat, you'll sometimes find the words "trimmed to no more than 1/4" of fat.

    You kinda just can't throw out "how many grams of fat are in my steak?" without any idea of the weight of the steak, the cut of the steak, how much fat was trimmed, etc.

    If it takes a hen and a half a day and a half to lay an egg and a half, how long does it take a one-legged monkey to kick the seeds out of a dill pickle? (I think I botched that quote, but it's from the intro of a Tom Robbins book.)

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
