Beef Week! Myth 1 "But isn't beef bad for you?
Meet Layni! My oldest daughter. She is an athlete- And there is no better way to fuel for her sport than with high-quality protein!
If there was a protein contest, beef would undoubtedly be crowned the king! Among the complete package of 10 essential nutrients, beef is known for, protein may be one of the most notable. In fact, one 3 oz cooked serving of beef provides 50% of your Daily Value (25 grams) of this vital nutrient—making it an excellent source!
A wealth of research has linked protein to improved lifestyle markers such as healthy body weight, maintaining and building muscle, and overall diet satisfaction. When you’re looking for ways to improve your health or satisfy your appetite, consider all that protein can do for you:
Feeling hungry? People who eat a higher-protein diet (about 30% of daily calories from protein) feel more satisfied, which may help prevent overeating.
Protein helps support healthy bodies. Eating at least 4 ounces of high-quality protein from foods like beef at each meal provides your body with energy to lead an active lifestyle.
Research has shown that exercise is more effective when paired with a higher-protein diet, and beef provides the amino acids necessary to build and replenish muscles.
