i eat it maybe once a week. I love it and I don't steer myself away from it for any specific health reasons. I just find myself eating salads for lunch and chicken, turkey and pork more often at dinner. while I rarely have ground beef, I do enjoy a grilled ribeye and a Cail Cabernet.
Most people eat more red meat than they think. I mean a big rare steak - maybe once a week, but are we including meatballs (when you think you are only eating pasta in your mind), beef and broccoli, won ton soup or steamed dumplings on "Chinese Night". Pizza with Sausage? Eggs and Bacon in the morning??? Wink

I'm probably red meating in some way 4 days a week at least.
Beef? Once, maybe twice a week. Usually it's lamb (we buy whole lambs twice a year), duck, bison, chicken, or seafood. Less often, but maybe once a week it's pork, veal, venison...

To answer the general question: "How often do you eat red meat?" - 50% of the time.

Now THAT's an honest answer Smile

Not sure I'm buying into Bez, Irwin and IndyBob up there for 3 meals+ per day where it works out to red meat once a week, 3 times a month or "almost never". Razz

Who's counting that Roast Beef sandwich at the deli for lunch when you had that healthy grilled chicken for dinner.
Very, very rarely. Since I started eating meat again almost two years ago, I mostly stick to fish unless I'm being served at someone's home, in which case I eat whatever is prepared. I eat a burger once every three or four months at most.

I did recently surprise my husband with Zingerman's bacon manifesto so the temptation is around but I don't plan on indulging too often (although a blt for dinner is sounding really tempting).
I eat red meat 1-2 times a week - usually ground beef. However, once spring/summer arrive and the snows have melted away, my comsumption increases to 2-3 times a week - as I am grilling more.

My wife and I eat more chicken, turkey, and fish than red meat by a large margin.

I will never give up my NY/ribeye steaks and Cali cab, er Syrah, er Malbec.

I make other adjustments in my diet to compensate. In the immortal words of Krusty the Clown: "Forget it! I'll just have to cut back on the Condor egg omelets...mmm...a couple of those sure would be tasty right now."
Spo, I was a vegetarian for 12 years. I was in very good health but I wasn't one of those vegetarians who subsisted on french fries.

I decided to stop because I hated that most restaurants only offered veggie plates or some ghastly crap. I also like to travel and didn't want to be one of those people who makes hosts or hostesses feel weird about my choices. I also wanted to raise my good cholesterol and since eating fish it has gone up to protective range. My ldl is still great. My blood levels as a vegetarian were always in ideal range except for hdl.

I was never the type of vegetarian who looked down on others for their choices (except for people who ordered their steaks well done!) I started in my 20s and it just kind of stuck with me and then I got worried about how my body would react to meat. The first couple of times I ate meat, my body was not happy at all so I transitioned very slowly. The oddest thing is that I am now allergic to salmon but could eat it before. That sucks as I like the taste.

I have not eaten chicken since I started eating meat. I never really liked it before, so why start now? Fish, especially sushi, is my favorite. I do love a good medium rare steak or burger once in a while.
I eat much less red meat now, which for the purposes of my discussion here means beef, than I once did. I was reading a magazine last year at some point, I can’t remember what magazine it was, and there was an article about things you should try to do at some point in your life. One of the items suggested was to go vegetarian for one month. At the beginning of 2008 my wife and I said that through the month of January we would not eat beef, pork, poultry, or lamb. The only meat that we ate was seafood so I guess we cheated somewhat. However, I still have not eaten any beef in 2008 and have had chicken only once. I do not have plans to totally eliminate beef because I love it too much but I am going to make an effort to scale back the amount of beef that I eat. I once ate beef 4 or 5 times per week but have no plans to do that again. I once used to believe that, because I exercise quite a bit, I could eat just about anything I wanted to and I would still maintain a high degree of health. I now believe that there is just too much valid research and literature showing the detrimental effects of beef on cardiac health.

I agree. I think some people have select memory and are excluding taco night, pasta with meat sauce and that quick hamburger they had while on the run. Wink
Hunter, GlennK,

Nope, no selective memory here. I know what I eat. In the last two years, I've had red meat three times, twice at Thanksgiving, and last March, I had an In and Out Double Double when I was in Ventura for work. In the past 18 years, I've had red meat about a dozen times, and pork once (in a migrant farmworker's camp--- I felt guilty refusing the sweet abuela who prepared it). I was all Veg all the time for about 10 years, but missed seafood too much, so I have it a few times a week, and have poultry rarely.

I'm in great health, and feel good. It works for me, more meat works for other people, no problemo.

Like Een, in that I don't give much thought about what anybody else eats. IMO, neither should anybody else. Smile

The Double Double from In and Out would be the deal breaker if I ever considered going Vegetarian. Well that and the Carne Asada burrito from Roberto's, prime Delmonico fresh off the grill, fried pork chops, barbaque ribs, etc.

Razz
and be for the kid were born she was a veggie !
an i would only have it on the weekends or when we went out!
oh did i forget she doesn't eat any sea food !
Hunter...
I don't eat meat at breakfast.....never. No sausage, bacon, never. I do eat yogurt, herring, cheese, cereals and eggs.
For lunch, I typically have either a chicken caesar salad, greek salad, or sometimes a turkey sandwhich. I don't eat hamburgers at lunch, nor roast beef.
For dinner, at least once or twice a week I eat vegetarian stuff.....Either veggie soy meatballs, or salads, or spinach pie. I might eat sushi. If I get Chinese food, it's typically a chicken dish. But, every once in a while, I'll eat a steak, meatloaf, or beef ribs. And, sometimes lamb or veal.
But, also there is fish.
So, I am sticking with the one time a week estimate.
If it weren't for Gentleman Farmer's cheesecake and genetics, I'd be svelte.
But, please don't suggest that I am dishonest. I am, after all, a lawyer.
