Beef

“Red meat contains saturated fat and cholesterol,” says Dr. Jinan Banna, RD. “If these are consumed in excess, the risk of cardiovascular disease increases. If someone is consuming a diet high in saturated fat and cholesterol, consuming red meat every day may not be the best choice. Of course, beef does contain nutrients that benefit the body, such as iron, and can be part of a healthy diet if consumed moderately.”
