Myth: Red Meat Is Bad for You

Red meat can be good for you, if you're eating the right amount, says Aronson. The Scientific Advisory Commission on Nutrition says adults shouldn't eat more than 17 ounces of red meat a week, and no more than 2.5 ounces a day. In general, it's smart to cut back on red meat because its saturated fat could increase heart disease risk. Go for lean cuts such as bison, sirloin, venison or 97-percent lean ground beef in moderation. Red meat is an excellent source of protein, which takes longer to digest, keeping you fuller loner. But humans don't actually need red meat, says Aronson. “If you enjoy it, value quality over quantity and try to find a local farm that raises organic, grass-fed cattle.” Organic isn't processed or filled with additives, which can help with weight loss.
