There's nothing like a good steak! moderation for anyone is the key. Meat is as stated above...an excellent source of protein and nutrients.
I eat beef with absolutely problems.
Taking longer to digest isn't the issue....actually foods that take longer to digest are better for your colon.
There are digestive enzymes to help break down protein....invest in them.
People make food decisions based on fear.....from my perspective.
Research and knowledge is the best tool for making best decisions.
Babying the digestive tract for too long isn't in the best interests of one's system....it just creates a lazy digestive system.
