Some mouth-watering news for all middle-aged males torn between the boring chef salad and a juicy rib-eye steak. Scientists in Canada show a slab of beef helps men in their 50s and 60s keep their bodies in shape!


Beef Steak Boosts Muscle Protein

Here is what happened. Experts examined the effect of eating 6 ounces of beef on men between the ages of 35 and 59. Their findings? Research shows significant improvements in muscle building development following exercise.

The study was carried out at McMaster University in Ontario, and challenged long-held recommendations that just 3 ounces of beef steak was the optimal amount for middle-aged men.

Writing in the medical journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism, the authors claim the true optimal figure is actually twice this amount - or about the size of your typical 6 oz restaurant steak.

Protein Provider

Since muscle protein synthesis is essential to growth, repair and the maintenance of skeletal muscle, this research has clear ramifications regarding muscle loss in aging.

But that isn't all.

These findings also show how beef isn't only a tasty protein provider but can play a pivotal part in a muscle building diet too.
