Is beef bad for health

Beef is typically high in fat and cholesterol which is usually associated with certain health conditions like heart disease. But in moderation it is ok to eat beef. Especially if its lean beef. Make sure you trim out all fat from your beef and it is always best to go with leaner beef like fillets. Red meat is actually very nutritious at the same time. They are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Is it healthy to eat meat every day

The recommendation is to eat about 3 portions of meat per week. This will be equivalent to a total of 12-18 oz depending on your weight. Wondering how much that it in grams, it should be about 350-500g of meat total per week. I personally eat lean meat about 1-2 times a week. Keep your portions small and try to include white meat like chicken into your diet for a variety.

    I made this tonight and it was delicious. I put it over a bowl of chopped kale to give it even more greens — yum! My only question the nutrition info seems a little off — if 2 servings use a pound of beef, then that’s 8 ounces of beef per serving, which is over 400 calories on its own — the nutrition label provided is showing 213 calories per serving. I ran the recipe through another nutrition calculator and got closer to 500 calories per serving.
