Beijing time on November 22, the whole beef diet is not a trendy diet, as early as more than a hundred years ago has been practiced. However, there are still some “well-known” supporters of this diet to this day. In fact, the whole beef diet is hardly a “diet”. Other meat-heavy diets are generally more popular and at least somescientificly based. No reputable nutritionist would think it’s a good idea to eat just beef. The people who promote this diet are mostly small net reds that spread and profit from miraculous health changes and examples of successful weight loss.
In the real world, a pure beef diet simply doesn’t provide the nutrients needed to sustain the body, says Johanna Di Stefano, a biochemist and head of the diabetes and fibrosis disease division at the Translational Genomics Institute in Phoenix. “This is the stupidest question I’ve heard in a long time,” Di Stefano said.
In a follow-up interview, Di Stefano noted that the whole-beef diet will not only end up consuming basic nutrients, but also pose a more basic threat to human health. “Many studies have repeatedly told us that eating more plants and eating more plant-based diets can help improve glucose stability, high blood pressure, and blood lipid levels,” she said. “
In other words, plant foods help us maintain more stable blood sugar levels, healthier blood pressure, and healthier cholesterol levels.
In fact, animal fat is the only important source of dangerous cholesterol for most people, says Di Stefano. Therefore, reducing meat consumption can significantly improve blood health. “There’s also a strong link between eating beef and certain cancers,” she says. Not eating cellulose increases the risk of certain cancers, including rectal cancer and diabetes. Therefore, the plant ingredients in the diet, including beans and grains, provide many of the protections that are not available for eating meat. “
A 2012 study published in the journal PLOS One found that there was a fairly large population that traditionally came close to an all-beef diet. The Maasai, who live in Kenya and northern Tanzania, with a population of nearly 900,000, eatal almost exclusively milk, meat and blood products. The Maasai people usually have lower blood cholesterol levels and do not exhibit unusual levels of heart disease. However, the researchers report in their paper that the Maasai may also have a genetic ally to help them adapt to unusual diets. In a 2018 article on healthline,” Healthline noted that the way the Maasai eat sashimi is very different from that of cattle grown around the world, and that despite the lack of diversity in the diet, this difference may also guarantee their overall health.
Di Stefano says cancer and heart disease aren’t the only reasons to add other foods to your diet. “One of the benefits of dietary variation is that you can cover all the nutritional bases, get the vitamin C, vitamin A, and other vitamins, minerals and nutrients your body needs to get the best it can be,” she said. “
Nutritional science is still evolving, but these foods are essential to the diet. Without these key substances, problems can arise inside the body. “If you eat only one thing – not necessarily beef or apples – you put yourself in a state of nutritional deficiency because there is no food to meet all your needs,” says Di Stefano.
Scientists are still working on some nutrients that are essential for longevity, but we can’t get all of them from one food. For those who claim to live a long-term life and stay healthy on an all-beef diet, Di Stefano says credibility is low, “I don’t think sticking to a diet like this for a year leads to the conclusions they claim.” To be honest, sooner or later someone will suffer because of this diet,” she said.
