Can anyone get B.P problems when eating meat (beef)?.. Can eating meat help us to pack on mass (lean mass)? Thank you.
Careful of red meat: BP depends on a variety of factors, including genetic factors, diet, other health conditions & diet. Red meat can be a source of protein which is important for building muscle mass, but it also has a lot of fat and cholesterol, so we generally try to limit it in a "heart-healthy" lifestyle.

Unfortunately : Unfortunately there is no way around this problem, the issue here is Cellulose (fiber found in raw vegetables) this is a carbohydrate that is very difficult for the human body to digest.
