Research Suggests Beef Just as Effective as Alternative Meats in High-Protein Weight Loss Diets


High protein diets as results-driven weight loss solutions are gaining popularity in today’s society. One protein commonly left-out of this hype, is beef, due to consumes’ misconception that beef is not as healthy or nutritious as its leaner alternatives. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Executive Director of Human Nutrition Research Dr. Shalene McNeill, is combatting this notion with science-based research, that has proven beef to be just as effective in a high-protein diet, as other meats. Ron Hays, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network farm director, had the opportunity to speak with McNeill during the NCBA Summer Business meeting in Denver this week.


“We’re really excited about this great new study called ‘Beef WISE,’” she said. “And what it stands for is ‘Beef’s Role in Weight Improvement, Satisfaction and Energy.’ That’s what we’re really wanting to understand, is how can beef become a part of weight management.”


In collaboration with internationally renowned obesity researchers at the University of Colorado, a study was conducted involving two separate groups on high-protein diets. One group was encouraged to eat beef frequently, while the other was allowed no beef in their diets. The results showed that after 16 weeks, both groups lost an average of about 20 pounds. Interestingly, 95 percent of the weight lost, was pure fat.


“So, even the beef eating groups were losing about 20 pounds on average,” McNeill said. “So, we do not have to restrict beef intake to lose weight. That can help us overcome a big myth that we often see with consumers.”


Listen to Dr. McNeill explain the basis of her research on beef as an effective component in weight management with Ron Hays, on today’s Beef Buzz.
