One nutritionist's opinion about eating meat.


A very popular question that I often find myself being asked is ‘is eating meat healthy?’ I can understand the confusion because there’s so much conflicting information out there. However, to me the answer is quite clear and if you don’t value my opinion you can stop reading now. But if you want to know why I think the way I do, then you are invited to read on. As far as I’m concerned, eating meat can be very healthy provided that it is consumed sensibly. What do I mean by ‘sensibly’? For that you’ll need to read on.


Like I said, there’s a lot of confusion, especially with the conflicting, sometimes misleading information out there. You will get different answers to the same question, depending on whom you’re talking to. Those who follow Paleo diet will swear by it whereas Vegans are likely to get out their crosses, garlic and wooden stakes. The world Health Organisation recently stated that processed meat and bacon are carcinogenic and that red meat is most likely too.
