Protein is one of the three macronutrients. Protein provides 4 calories per gram and promotes muscle preservation and synthesis in the body. Protein is the slowest digesting macronutrient, which means it keeps us full for longer after a meal. Protein also has a very minimal impact on blood sugars levels. Grass-fed beef is a great source of protein. Including grass-fed beef in your meals contributes to longer satiety and more stable blood sugar levels.
