Belgian food and health experts worked together to write a report on how to live longer by changing your eating habits based on the newest science, taking into account Belgian eating and living habits as well as common chronic diseases.
Red meat, for example, should only be limited to 300 grams per week, the equivalent of two small steaks, according to the Superior Health Council, that is part of the Federal Health Department.
The Council recommends substituting red meat for fish, poultry or pulses and legumes, and charcuterie for pulse or legume-based spreads, fruits or fresh cheese, reports De Standaard.
