Is ground beef good for a low carb diet?
In recent years, you’ve probably seen a lot of recipes that purposely replace ground beef with leaner proteins like ground turkey or bison. So what’s the deal — is ground beef a healthy protein option or not?
The truth is that it all depends on your diet. If you are following a low carb or ketogenic way of eating, then you can enjoy more fat in your diet than someone following a high carb diet.
Which means that ground beef is a perfectly good option for anyone eating low carb! It’s a great source of protein, plus it’s absolutely delicious.
You can of course also buy very low-fat ground beef, but I don’t recommend it as it doesn’t taste nearly as good as ground beef with higher fat content.
I typically buy 83% lean ground beef (17% fat) as I think it has the best balance between taste and fat content.
