The Health Benefits of Eating at Your Local Steakhouse


The Health Benefits of Eating at Your Local Steakhouse

Enjoying a delicious steak at a Dallas Steakhouse is a staple for any visitor or homegrown Texan.  Growing up, we have all most likely been told at one point that too much red meat is bad for your health.  Well, at Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse, we believe that serving the right cut of steak for a healthy lifestyle is important, and a well-prepared steak can provide health benefits as well as a satisfied stomach.

Steak is an Excellent Source of Protein

Protein is a factor that everyone needs to work into their daily diet.  According to recent studies, eating a high-protein diet can help one maintain and lose weight, and add a boost of natural energy to one’s lifestyle.

Y.O. Steakhouse’s choice selection of vegetable-based sidesAn all-natural, grass-fed steak, served from a Dallas Steakhouse can easily grant an individual half of their daily protein intake with a 3 oz.  prime cut of beef.  Combine that beef with a side of Y.O. Steakhouse’s choice selection of vegetable-based sides, and you are not only on your way to eating the best steak in Dallas, but you are also feeding your body the nutrients it needs. 

Lower Blood Sugar

According to research published in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism, the effects of healthy fats from lean beef is very beneficial to keeping blood sugars at a healthy level.  Based on the ideas of Dr. Richard K. Bernstein, protein is the most important part of a person’s daily diet especially if they are seeking to control blood sugar.

Steak is Loaded with Necessary Vitamins

Not only is a well-seasoned cut of lean red meat satisfying to the taste buds, but it is also packed with a punch of natural B vitamins.  Lean red meat contains B-12, which promotes nervous system health, B-6 for a strong immune system, riboflavin for healthy eyes and skin, and niacin, a B vitamin that helps with proper indigestion.

If you are especially health conscious and are looking to gain muscle mass, lean red meat is also great for you because it contains a good amount of zinc.  Zinc in a daily diet is necessary because it promotes the building of muscle mass, a healthy brain, and a strengthened immune system.  According to Livestrong.com, the body needs an average of 15 mg of zinc each day.  A Y.O. Steakhouse serving of sirloin is sure to provide your daily zinc needs.
