5 Reasons to Beef Up Your Diet in 2020
Long gone are the dark
days of beef being mislabeled as the enemy of a healthy life and trim
body. In fact, since the unmasking of carbs as the real culprit in weight
gain, high protein and generously beef-filled meals have been the clear winner
in slim-down diets and sustainable healthy eating.
Just looking across
the diet landscape of Keto, Whole30, DASH and Paleo, you have ample room to
work lean red meat into your 2020 health plan.
If you’re not looking for an entire diet change, you could eat just a little healthier by changing Pizza Friday to Filet Mignon Friday – adding more high-quality lean beef into your diet.
Whatever you do this
year, thinking meat-filled and delicious is a real option. And we have 5 big
reasons to beef up this year’s diet.
- Protein is the building block of bones, muscle,
cartilage, skin and blood. So, basically like everything inside you that
matters. Lean beef is one of the top sources of protein and unquestionably
the most savory.
- As a high-quality protein, one 3-ounce serving of beef
provides more than 10 percent of 10 essential nutrients and vitamins for
less than 10 percent of your daily calories. Some call this the 10/10/10
beef benefit. We call it #superhappyfunbeefdancetime.
- Scientific studies show eating high-protein meals
boosts satiety and reduces hunger and food cravings. So, mixing a steak
into your breakfast and/or lunch can help fight cravings throughout your
day. Thanks science!
- Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet Study – referred to as
the BOLD Study – found that when lean
beef is consumed daily in a heart-healthy diet, LDL (bad cholesterol) was
reduced 10 percent from the baseline. We don’t call this study BOLD, we
call it DELICIOUS.
- Beef isn’t a kale smoothie. All the other wonderful
dietary benefits of beef aside, a diet being bearable is part of it being
possible. A beef-filled diet might just save your New Year’s resolution
and ensure a terrific 2018!
Whatever health and/or
dietary promises you’ve made yourself in this new year, we hope you’ve
considered beef as a sincere aid in meeting your goals.
It can’t run the
treadmill for you or lift weights, but it can certainly give your resolutions a
Cheers to a healthy
(and tasty) 2020!
