Be Careful What You Eat It With
A recent study from Tufts found that the more red meat people ate, the more likely they were to gain weight. However, when people ate their red meat with more vegetables, rather than refined carbs, that weight gain was blunted. This serves as another reminder that if we must demonize a food, let it be white bread, french fries, and sugary drinks. "I'd rather see people make a positive change in their diet by cutting back on junk food," says Purdue's Wayne Campbell. "And not worry about whether their serving of meat is three or four ounces."
