MEAT Diet Plan
Possibly the greatest nutritional debate centres on the question of meat. No other natural food causes such heated debate, while the general public always on the menu, hot plate or takeaway display.
The overconsumption of meat can cause problems. will firstly provide the list of problems associated benefits.
POSSIBLE DETRIMENTAL FACTORS
1. Excess consumption of meat.
2. Excess saturated fat intake.
3. Low carbohydrate content.
4. Excess cholesterol intake.
5. Uric acid, nitrates, adrenaline.
6. Antibiotics, hormones, drugs.
7. Low calcium content.
9. Excess body acids.
10. Obesity development.
11. Processed meats.
12. Bacteria, long digestion time.
13. Free radicals.
14. Lacking the supply of omega-3
15. Low in numerous nutrients.
16. Other factors.
POSSIBLE BENEFICIAL FACTORS
1. Moderate protein content.
2. Supply of vitamin B12.
3. Long lasting, ‘ full stomach feeling’.

As with nearly all foods, any excess is not beneficial. The serve of meat often takes up 70% of the dinner plate and the small quantity of foods ‘on the side’ barely provides sufficient nutrition for a proper balanced diet.
The balanced diet requires 50% carbohydrates, 35% protein and 15% lipids.
On average, meat (steak) supplies a proportion ratio of 0% carbohydrates, 28% protein and 72% lipids. Unless the diet supplies a balance of carbohydrate foods without added fats, the common meat meal can become a ‘big’ problem! are often pushed into meat consumption as it is

The fat from two lamb chops or two sausages or two slices of bacon easily exceeds the daily ‘lipid limit’.
The average beef steak supplies the proportion of 45g saturated fats, 1g polyunsaturated and 9g mono-unsaturated. The essential fatty acid omega-3 is not supplied by meat. Saturated fats can be used for energy but ideally the carbohydrate foods are the best energy foods as they require less digestive effort and, generally speaking, they supply the associated nutrients to support energy production. Excess saturated fat intake can lead to heart disease.
An excess consumption of saturated fats per day is more than one main meat meal per day, or over 100g of cheese or one meal of bacon and eggs.
Saturated fats do provide a ‘full stomach’ feeling for many hours and this can be considered both a bonus and a detriment. Once consumed, the digestive system attempts to process the protein content of meat within the stomach. Saturated fats slow down the protein conversion and can cause problems later in the small intestine and colon. Saturated fats are not processed in the stomach; they are converted into fatty acids and glycerol in the upper part of the small intestine (duodenum). This ‘delaying factor’ of saturated fats can seem like a satisfying meal, but for the digestive system, it is in ‘the too hard basket’. Saturated fats increase blood cholesterol levels in addition to those supplied by the meat.
As mentioned previously, meat supplies hardly any carbohydrate content or, more to the point, no roughage or fibre content. Both these factors can become a problem for the regular meat eater. Especially if their diet also includes refined foods—white bread, chips, etc.—as there will be insufficient natural movement in the lower digestive system.
This can lead to constipation and, over the long term, colon cancer can develop due to the bacteria caused from the build-up of toxins within the large intestine.
Nearly all animal protein foods are very low in fibre and carbohydrate content.
It is essential to obtain such foods as pears, apples, rice bran, figs, coconut, legumes, bananas and other fruits and vegetables regularly in order to protect against the meat getting ‘stuck in a rut’!
