Limit size and fat: Most studies indicate that red meat consumption is not good for the health, and possibly adding even just one serving a day can increase the long term risk of death. However, most nutritionists recommend focusing on sensible portion sizes and lean red meat cuts, for those who choose to eat it. Substitute fish, chicken and turkey, nuts and beans as alternative protein sources. ...Read more

How long will it take to lose 30 pounds if I don't eat red meat and walk 2 miles every day?

How long will it take to lose 30 pounds if I don't eat red meat and walk 2 miles every day?

GOOD GOAL >15 weeks: Many studies show that a reasonable rate of weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week. So @ that rate 30# loss should take approx. 15+ weeks. You may have to look closely at calorie intake and 'not just stop red meat'. Perhaps a 1300-1500 kcal/day 'meal plan' will net you the weight loss you desire. It is a great idea to 'walk 2 miles a day'. Good job! ...Read more

Hi I am 27 yr old female. My LDL is 167 and HDL is 70. I weigh 122 lb and exercise 4 days a week. I do not eat red meat at all. What are my risks?

Hi I am 27 yr old female. My LDL is 167 and HDL is 70. I weigh 122 lb and exercise 4 days a week. I do not eat red meat at all. What are my risks?

Cholesterol : Your LDL is higher than the recommended level of 130 for the general population. This is a risk factor for heart disease. Some may consider your HDL level as a positive risk factor counterbalancing the elevated LDL but I don't subscribe to this position. Your LDL must be lower to reduce your long term risk, especially if you have other risk factors. ...Read more

My doctor tells me I am animic again. Have had all major tests. I am worried this will affect my heart. I eat red meat not to many veggies. Concerned.

No relation: Red meat diet and anemia are not a risk factors for heart problems. If you already have heart problems, like coronary artery disease, anemia could increase the symptoms and worse the condition by decreasing o2 transport capacity and increasing the demand of o2. Too much red meat suggested as risk factor for colon cancer. Try to eat mire fish and more veggies. Continue your doctor tx for anemia. ...Read more

Been on cont birth control year round for past year and half. I have above normal iron (iron binding capacity). Other iron levels normal. Cold it be from the pill continuous. Don't eat red meat.

Could be from pill : Estrogens can increase the proteins that bind iron and this is harmless. Iron Saturation is the number you want to look at, and is calculated by dividing (iron) by (total iron binding capacity). If your saturation is between 20 and 40 (or the normal for your lab), you are fine. ...Read more

How could i be anemic if I eat red meat, greek yogurt (plain), eggs, spinach etc..... Could my gastritis/ulcers/heavy periods be to blame?

How could i be anemic if I eat red meat, greek yogurt (plain), eggs, spinach etc..... Could my gastritis/ulcers/heavy periods be to blame?

Anemia...: Anemia (low hemoglobin) is caused by the body losing blood (heavy periods, blood in stool), red blood cell instability (hemoglobinopathies), destruction (hemolysis), the bodies inability to produce new red blood cells (for example iron deficiency), or a combination of these. I would guess you are losing a small amount of blood regularly, rather than diet. Blood tests can help figure out cause. ...Read more

I have stomach pain/cramps after I eat red meat or pork. I don't eat much red meat but I am concerned it might be gallstones as I had a wls 4 yrs ago.

I have stomach pain/cramps after I eat red meat or pork. I don't eat much red meat but I am concerned it might be gallstones as I had a wls 4 yrs ago.

Food intolerance: Most often intolerance of a specific food occurs when enzymes produced by the body to break down the proteins in the food are deficient. This is more common than a true food allergy. The fat in meat might suggest a gall bladder problem, but curiously it is fried & processed foods (donuts, pie), cheese, ice cream, butter more often. Consider GI (gastrointestinal) evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more
