Lean meat is part of a healthy diet

Protein can help in maintaining a healthy weight, building muscle and fueling physical activity – all of which play an important role in a healthful lifestyle and disease prevention. The body of scientific evidence continues to grow in support of a balanced and varied diet that includes lean meat as a key to long-term health.

Calorie-for-calorie, beef is one of the most naturally nutrient-rich foods. On average, a 3 oz. serving of lean beef is about 150 calories yet it is an excellent source of six essential nutrients: protein, zinc, vitamin B12, selenium niacin and B6 and is a good source of four essential nutrients: phosphorus, choline, iron and riboflavin.

Many of Americans favorite cuts are lean, including T-Bone, Tenderloin, Top Sirloin, and more. Beef gives your body more of the high-quality protein you need to achieve and maintain a healthy weight and preserve and build muscle. Click here to learn more about protein benefits.
