Hey rondon,

I don't see any reason to add in the red meat. If you don't enjoy it, why force yourself?

RobinHood - Red meat contains whole protein. Contains all the good stuff you need. If you train a lot I don't see any reason why age matters consuming red meat.

Find other tasty alternatives if you need to up your protein intake.

I read that ground beef is not a good protein source as the cell structure has been mashed up beyond protein beneficial. Phone Post
That's interesting, logic would say that if there's protein in it before, it wouldn't disappear, regardless if its minced. It's like saying there's omega 3 in eggs.. until they're scrambled and then it just breaks down and is no longer significant Phone Post

Or that the protein in powders isn't good.

Or that protein after consumption and digestion isn't good.

I'm curious where this was read from...

If you can get grass fed beef from a local farm it would be the healthiest thing you could do for yourself next eating farm fresh eggs.

Over processing does affect the amino acid and fatty acid profile - especially if there are additives and excessive temperature changes involved in the process.

Simply cutting or grinding shouldnt be a problem.

An example would be the bioavailability of a protein source before and after it's cooked...

I absolutely adore red meat. Never had a problem with it when I was younger. Problem I have now that I'm older is that given the choice between red meat and white meat, I still eat the same "physical amount". The difference is in the extra calories that red meat has over say a similar sized portion of chicken or fish.

It's not the red meat my older metabolism is having a hard time with, it's the extra calories.

some cuts of really high quality grassfed beef and buffalo are actually leaner than chicken breast. still, there is absolutely no reason to eat beef(or any other individual food for that matter), if you dont want to.

This should tell you what you need to know about red meat, and much much more.
