Reducing meat in diet can result in leaner waists, better health

Posted by Nancy B.

Doctors and health officials say you don't have to forsake meat to get the health benefits of a healthy diet that lowers your risk of heart disease and certain cancers. "Would we all be better off if we dramatically reduced meat to the point of one meal a week? I would say yes," Dr. Bob Lawrence, director of the Center for a Livable Future at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health said in a Forbes interview "But the reality is that, from a public health perspective, if we just get some modest reductions in our intake of saturated fats, it'll have a big impact." Dr. Lawrence and other experts suggest some simple steps to leaner eating, which include meatless Mondays, avoiding too much charred, well-done and barbecued meat and limiting portion sizes.
