Reduce the Risk
of Coronary Heart Disease
The best part of a diet like this is that we can eat lean meat and do so without guilt since meat is a carbohydrate and sugar-free food. In fact, new research published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, June, 1999, compared the impact of lean red and white meat on blood cholesterol levels.
The study found that diets including 6 oz. of lean red meat consumed 5 or more days per week can actually reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Both red and white meat proteins were found to lower the LDL (bad cholesterol) and raise the HDL (good cholesterol) levels. This amounted to nearly a 10% reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease during the 9 month study.
