PUT THE IDEA THAT MEAT IS UNHEALTHY TO REST!
Over the years, meat may have gotten a bad rap, and this is because it's true that animal products are naturally higher in saturated fat and cholesterol than other products.  
BUT...
Not all meat is created equally.  Some meats are MUCH lower in fat and cholesterol than others!!
In fact, it's a great idea to include lean meat in your new and improved diet, and if chosen with care, lean meat is a great source of:
  • Muscle-building PROTEIN
  • IRON
  • VITAMINS B6 and B12 (a must for optimal energy and mood!)
  • PHOSPHOROUS
  • ZINC 
* The US Dietary Guidelines recommends an average of 5-7 ounces (or 2 to 3 servings) of meat, poultry, or fish each day
STOCK UP ON THESE:  
Poultry:
Chicken
Cornish hen
Turkey
Extra lean ground turkey or chicken*
(white mean without skin is considered lean)

Pork:
Centerloin
Tenderloin

Beef:
Flank steak
Sirloin tip
Eye of round
Top Round
Tenderloin
Top Loin
Rump roast
Extra lean ground beef*

What's Your BEEF?
