too much meat?

So when i started to look deeper into what was costing the most money (meats) i figured out that im eating nearly .4-.5kg of meat at lunch and dinner wether it be steak,chicken or pork.

Re: too much meat?

Healthy food is worth the cost, it's the most significant impact on your health.

As for too much meat - as long as it's quality, it's almost impossible to eat too much. Especially if you eat it more rare, and include organ meats.

Just be sure to have a variety of whole foods in your meals, don't just eat chicken breast every day.

Re: too much meat?

I would say it depends on your activity level, age, general health, etc.
Eating that much of meat may not be an issue right now. Things would be different, though, for seniors or people with renal issues.
So if you want to be on the safe side, get regular complete blood counts and organ profile (correct word? ARGH! Language ).

That is one serving for some people here

One should view the WCRF recommendation in context though, because they also state ...

"Moderate consumption of fresh meat within a plant-based diet has other health benefits."

and

"The studies on nutrition and cancer also indicate that colorectal cancer is in most instances the result of multiple risk factors, including obesity, lack of physical activity, low intake of fibre-rich cereals and vegetables and that each individual factor contributes to the risk of cancer. Our results meant we could conclude that red and processed meats are contributing causes to cancer of the colorectum, independently from other known risk factors."

So one's total risk may be lower than average even if eating more than 500g meat per week, depending on other factors.

Re: too much meat?

If your trying to gain mass then you'll need more meat, carbs and fat than most other people. But, one shouldn't be eating meat all the time just to eat something and thinking it's just protein so it wont trun to fat.

Yes, this exactly. Your body is very efficient, and any excess consumption will be converted to fat and stored..including protein. Eat for the weight you want to be, then make what you do eat be good food.
