Red Meat is a great source of protein,
Dont shy away from a little fat, 15%-20% is ideal, that will maximize digestion efficiency and BV.
Red meat vs. chicken or fish, is more nutrient dense due to its higher content of iron, B vitamins, zinc, and cholesterol, which is important for the production of muscle-building hormones like testosterone.
Optimizing hormone production in the body, is critical to performance and muscle growth.
Red meat is a great tool in our sport IMO.Its all these little added details that help.
Between 10-16 oz a day. 96% lean ground beef usually. Eat steak a couple times a week also. Cholesterol is around 140-160. Just had Cardiac CT Scan done a couple months ago. Cardiologist said my coronary arteries looked "great". I'm 45 and weigh 275lbs. Party on. :headbang:
Absolutely!! I typically eat around 1 pound a day of 85% grass-fed beef. Brown it in a skillet with a little salt, pepper, minced garlic, and onion-herb Mrs. Dash seasoning! That's good shit right there.
1/2 lb. plus a day for decades. Total cholesterol is usually 140. Lean beef seems to be as healthy as chicken from the studies I have seen. People that eat beef usually eat processed meats are less healthy. The nitrates and processing seems to be where the unhealthy part comes from.
