Industry-funded study of the week: Unprocessed red meat is good for you
My theme for this week is meat, poultry, and their alternatives, starting today with this:
The study: Unprocessed red meat in the dietary treatment of obesity: a randomized controlled trial of beef supplementation during weight maintenance after successful weight loss. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, nqac152, https://doi.org/10.1093/ajcn/nqac152.
Objectives: “We sought to investigate the effects of healthy diets that include small or large amounts of red meat on the maintenance of lost weight after successful weight loss….”
Conclusions: “Healthy diets consumed ad libitum that contain a little or a lot of unprocessed beef have similar effects on body weight, energy metabolism, and cardiovascular risk factors during the first 3 mo after clinically significant rapid weight loss.”
