Tip: Make sure that the meat is very lean. Try to take in beef that comes from cattle that are grass fed instead of grain fed in their diet. Eat something sweet that is good for you, like dark chocolate which is full of antioxidants. Olive Oil should be used in preparation of food. It contains monounsaturated fat . Stay away from polyunsaturated fat that comes after processing, such as corn oil, safflower oil, and sunflower oil.
