Pound of grass fed beef a day?

by 77322 · January 20, 2013 at 12:18 AM

I've started paleo recently, and find that I'm eating 3/4 lbs of 75% lean grass fed ground beef a day, with about 1/4 lb of grass fed organ meat ( heart, in this case.)

Is this too much meat? Too much protein?

Thanks

A pound a day seems incredibly wasteful. Meat and protein aren't preferred energy sources, so to use them as such is inefficient. Eat plants - roots, tubers, fruits, nuts, oils - for calories.

That is about 80g protein/day, which is not too much (depending on how much other protein sources you have). Everyone has different protein requirements based on weight, lean mass, exercise, etc. I believe eating offal daily is overkill as your body does not need/cannot use that amount of nutrients.

Variety is always good as well as different meats give you different nutritional benefits...beyond the fact that you might get bored eating the same thing.

Add in some eggs and salmon as simple other protein options. If available, other meats like bison and lamb are great too.

Meat and fish are the best sources of protein, since (as we’ll see later) plant proteins are often toxic. So how much meat and fish should we eat? Most meats have about 400 protein calories per pound.

There are a few exceptions to this rule: bacon has 210 protein calories per pound uncooked, due to its high fat content, but 700 protein calories per pound if fried to a crisp. Eggs have 230 calories per pound. But 400 protein calories per pound is a good rule of thumb.

Therefore, the peak health range for protein of 200 to 600 calories is satisfied by eating 0.5 to 1.5 pounds of meat, fish, and eggs per day.

Athletes and very-low-carb dieters will benefit from eating in the upper half of that range, but most people will want to consume 200 to 400 calories of protein, or 0.5 to 1.0 pound of meat, fish, and eggs per day.

Nope! Protein is awesome - fills you right up so you feel happy and don't crave donuts :)

The only reason we ever limit it at our house is to save a little money. When my husband and I find a good deal on grass fed meats, we fill up the freezer and eat about a pound a day each.
