We eat red meat a couple times a week. I tend to border on being anemic at times and I like the protein it provides. My cholesterol is 115 so I don't think it's gotten me to the verge of a heart attack. Have you had lab work done lately and is anything in a concerning range? If so, you may want to avoid it for some other options.

I would think that the fat would be more problematic than the calories to overall health. I'm not sure because I don't get ribeye, but I believe it is one of the fattier of the marbled ones?

If you are concerned, you could maybe switch to a leaner cut, and be sure that you cook it in a healthy way (I live in the South, and people really fry steak here...)

Check out this chart for leaner cuts of meat for comparison's sake, if you're interested.

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
