Although people who strive for a healthy diet may shy away from eating red meat due high cholesterol and saturated fat in some cuts of beef, a healthy diet should consist of the right cut and serving size of fresh or organic red meat each week.

​Three ounces of red meat supplies nearly half the protein an average adult needs in a healthy diet each day. Protein delivers amino acids and enzymes that are important for healthy muscles and a strong immune system. The protein from beef supplies a good source of slow burning energy that helps satisfy hunger for hours after a meal.
