Red meat has been linked to heart disease, cancer and diabetes and the ever expanding American waistline. Experts say that you can have your steak and eat healthy, too, as long as you follow a few simple rules.
1) Choose the leanest cuts of meat. It is best to choose your choice cuts and not the prime cuts. The prime cuts usually have more marbling in them and they’re higher in overall fat.
2) Cut back on portion size. One should really eat meat that’s the size of his fist or a deck of cards.
3 ) Use low-fat cooking methods. Do bake instead of fry. Grilling or broiling is okay, but avoid charring from a direct flame.
4 ) Eat red meat in moderation, especially if you already have health problems.
If your diet also includes fresh fish, low-fat poultry, plenty of fruits and vegetables, you don’t have to be left wondering where’s the beef.
