Eating chicken has become synonymous with eating healthy. It's a common and false assumption that chicken and fish make up the gamut of healthy protein and what you need to eat to stay lean. ENTER BISON. Bison is a SUPER-FOOD that is rich in PROTEIN and nutrients such as zinc and iron. It contains fewer calories, less fat and lower levels of cholesterol than beef, chicken & pork. According to the American Dietetic Association (ADA), "Bison is an excellent source of PROTEIN, vitamin B-12, zinc and a good source of iron. Vitamin B-12 promotes healthy metabolism, nerve function & blood formation (also known as The Pump!). Zinc plays a vital role in immune-system support, wound healing, TISSUE & MUSCLE GROWTH. Bison provides a significant percentage of the recommended dietary intake of iron per men under 50 & for women under 50."
Small changes can make big differences in your life and this is especially true about weight loss. Simply substituting leaner meat — like Bison — for fattier meats in your regular meals can reduce the amount of calories and fat you eat. Tom Venuto, author of "Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle," lists Bison as one of the top 10 protein foods for weight loss!
