Foods high in fiber work wonders for the digestive system and unfortunately red meat is not one of them. Being particularly high in fat and low in fiber, the body struggles to digest. In addition to this, particular protein fibers also offer a challenge for the body to digest. Reducing red meat in the diet to an occasional meal rather than a staple will improve digestive movements as well reducing the content of fat being consumed. Alternatives, if you prefer to continue eating meat, would be leaner meats such as turkey, chicken or even certain kinds of fish.
