3 Tips to Eating Beef and Staying Healthy

Updated: Feb. 08, 2017

Learn how to enjoy lean beef with these tips from The Doctors.

1. Go lean! Here’s what to look for.

Choose round, sirloin, or tenderloin (including New York strip and filet mignon); these cuts have about the same amount of fat as a piece
of skinless chicken breast. Avoid prime and T-bone.

2. Spring for grass-fed if you can find it.

It’s more expensive, but it has higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed beef.

3. It sounds obvious, but—eat less.

The perfect meat portion
is three ounces (about the size of a deck of cards), which is a lot smaller than many restaurant portions.
