Health Tip: Don't Eat Too Much Meat

(HealthDay News) -- Eating too much meat can make you sick, says New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Too much red meat -- especially processed meats like sausages, bacon, salami and hot dogs -- contribute to chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

Overeating animal products often means the underconsumption of fiber, which is only found in plant-based foods. Fiber helps the digestive system, help lowers cholesterol and helps you feel full.

New York-Presbyterian says most of your calories should come from foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.
