meat

(met)
The flesh of animals (such as cows, pigs, and poultry) eaten as food. Meat is a concentrated source of proteins, fats, cholesterol, calories, and many vitamins and micronutrients. It contains significant amounts of B complex vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin), iron, and other minerals. It has limited amounts of calcium and fiber. Its metabolic by-products include organic acids.

Western diets contain far more meat than is needed for growth and development. Excessive consumption of meats and of other calorically dense, high-fat foods contributes to obesity and atherosclerotic heart disease. See: Food Guide Pyramid
