An astounding 38 percent of people who make New Year’s resolutions will make a nutrition or weight loss-related resolution. Sadly, however, only 8 percent of people successfully achieve those New Year’s resolutions.
If nutrition, weight loss, exercise or healthy eating is at the top of your resolution list, consider adding lean beef to your healthy diet. There are 27 lean cuts of beef to choose from with about 157 calories per serving. You can enjoy lean ground beef, top sirloin, and tenderloin in a variety of low fat dishes for less than 500 calories.
And to help you maintain that healthy weight loss, consider this: adding lean beef to your diet (especially in the morning and afternoon) helps increase satiety and decreases hunger, which helps prevent unhealthy cravings and snacking!
