Beef is Part of a Healthy Diet!

Beef WISE Study

(Weight Improvement, Satisfaction and Energy = WISE)

“We know higher-protein diets are popular and effective strategies to lose weight. Can lean beef have a role in these weight loss diets without negatively impacting heart health?

Research, funded by the beef checkoff, shows it can! In a study released this month, researchers found that, when combined with exercise, lean beef is just as effective as other protein choices to help people achieve important health goals such as weight loss and muscle mass maintenance while supporting a healthy heart.  Information points were shared by Master’s of Beef Advocacy.  Thank you Beef Checkoff for funding the research.” – Ryan Goodman, Director, Grassroots Advocacy, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, a contractor to the beef checkoff.

Based on a 3 oz. serving size, beef provides

  • Nearly half of the daily value for protein
  • Less than 10 grams of fat
  • 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat
  • Less than 95 mg of cholesterol

Besides just tasting great, the nutrients in lean beef, such as protein, iron and B-vitamins can help satisfy you and maintain a healthy weight, build muscles and fuel a healthy and active lifestyle.

Oh, how could we forget?! Research suggests that eating lean beef can also improve cholesterol levels! Kind of a big deal.
