Replacing 3% of calories from red meat with plant protein was associated with a 12% lower risk of death over 26-32 years according to a recent analysis from researchers from Harvard University.
This is the equivalent of replacing roughly 15-20 grams of protein from red meat with plant protein for people eating a diet containing 1800-2500 calories per day.
A McDonald’s hamburger contains 12 grams of protein.
A quarter-pound hamburger contains 24 grams of protein.
A 9-ounce steak contains 70 grams of protein.
