Many Americans could benefit from adding high-quality protein to their diet. A moderate to higher protein diet plays a positive role in weight management, healthy aging and disease prevention. Contrary to conventional wisdom, research shows that including lean beef, even daily as part of a heart healthy diet and lifestyle, can improve cholesterol profiles. A recent study called BOLD (Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet) demonstrated that when adding lean beef to the most recommended heart-healthy diet it reduced levels of total and LDL "bad" cholesterol.
