Share to save for later!

If you’re on the ketogenic diet, then you probably eat a lot of beef. It’s high in good fats and protein, and contains no carbohydrates. 

There are even several different cuts of beef that you can try, such as rib eye, steak, ground beef (beef mince), beef liver, prime rib, chuck roast, and more. Each contains a unique nutrient profile and taste, and there are many ways to cook them.

Health Benefits of Eating Beef

Beef is more than just a low-carb food. It’s also a good source of vitamins, minerals, and omega 3 fatty acids, especially if it’s grass-fed.

Grass-fed beef contains higher levels of some nutrients compared to conventional grain-fed beef, including more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), omega 3 fatty acids, cholesterol neutral stearic fatty acids, and precursors for vitamins A and E (1).

Grass-fed beef also contains fewer saturated fatty acids that have been linked to elevated cholesterol levels, such as palmitic acid and myristic acid.

Finally, grass-fed beef contains more antioxidants that has been shown to fight cancer, including glutathione and superoxide dismutase. Research shows that red meat provides a good source of protein and essential nutrients, and it may help you lose weight by keeping you full (2).

For example, a 100 gram serving of raw, ground grass-fed beef contains the following (3):

  • 198 calories
  • 12.7 grams fat
  • 88 mg Omega 3 fatty acids
  • 0 gram carbs
