If you are trying to lose weight, don’t

If you are trying to lose weight, don’t forget about red meat. Not exactly what you think of as a diet food, right? And you’re certainly not going to lose weight by eating nothing but steak. But it’s interesting that research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition compared diet results for women who ate lean red meat and those who didn’t and found that the meat-eaters lost more weight. The study results were most noticeable in women who already had metabolic syndrome. Experts think the dense protein in lean red meat helps you maintain muscle mass — but of course this assumes you’re exercising to build that muscle. http://ow.ly/i/dOTTx
