I've been on paleo for a couple of months now.
I try to only eat meat when I know that it's well raised, well treated meat. In effect, this means I don't eat very much meat at all.
In the past few weeks I've eaten some nice big steaks twice. On both occasions I noticed the next day I felt better - mentally sharper and physically had more energy.
It's possible that this was coincidence, perhaps related to a better night's sleep, but I'd like to check in with some knowledgeable people on if I might be missing something that the red meat gave me.
My diet is reasonably stable. I eat 2-3 eggs for breakfast, fish a few times a week (baked cod/haddock, not very much oily fish), and lots of vegetables, carrots, broccoli, kale, zucchini/courgette, sweet potato. I eat lots of apples and bananas, dried figs and nuts as snacks throughout the day. (I average 50-100g of nuts/day). I buy a whole chicken maybe once a month. That's it, I haven't varied much from this for 4-6 weeks and in this period meat wise only had the two steaks and 1 whole chicken, meat wise.
Any input on the red meat question appreciated,
