How much red meat should I eat in a week?
Asked by peggy60 on Jan 24, 2011 in Nutrition




Answer

One or two red meat meals per week is enough and each portion should be limited to 3 or 4 ounces. In addition, leaner cuts such as round steak, sirloin and flank should be chosen and red meat should be trimmed of all visible fat. With ground beef, even 85% lean is still fatty. Excessive consumption of red meat has been linked to cardiovascular diseases, several cancers, diabetes, kidney disease, arthritis, and obesity.
