Some ppl even consume beef when dieting down, I for one do that as well since I find it helps keeps me full and allows the progress to continue during the entire time I'm dieting.
Personally I think it is a must b/c of the following benefits:
-There are at least 12 cuts of beef that are leaner than a skinless chicken thigh.
-Calorie-for-calorie, beef is one of the most nutrient-rich foods. Not only does it provide you with a bundle of essential nutrients, it has one of the highest concentrations of these nutrients compared to many other proteins.
-Beef is High in zinc, which is important for a healthy immune system.
-Beef contains more iron than most foods, and it is more easily used by the body than iron from other sources
-Beef is a great source of phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, selenium and b vitamins.
-Not to mention an Excellent source of complete proteins
-Beef contains more creatine than any other protein which aids bodybuilders in building muscle.
So what does everyone else think???
