The Little Things That Make a Big Difference’ is an article series outlining weight loss and diet interventions that may seem insignificant, but can make a huge difference to the success of your diet plan.

Go meat-free occasionally

This is not going to be a “preach” about going vegetarian for the rest of your life. So right off the bat, I’ll say this: I eat meat. But here’s the thing – just because you eat meat doesn’t mean that meat needs to be in EVERY meal, or even in EVERY day.

Meat is not unhealthy, as long as you keep it in moderation with the rest of your diet plan. I generally eat meat four to five times per week (including fish and chicken). The rest of my meals come from fruits, veggies, starches, eggs, dairy, cereals, pastas, nuts and seeds.

There are two central ideas here

One, you need to eat a variety of foods if you want to be healthy. Two, you may need to eat less red meat and pork because they are high in saturated fat, which is not good for your heart, and can also be linked to cancer.

I personally think meat can be part of a balanced diet, but not in the quantities that most people eat it. Cut down a little, and see how much better you feel.
