A nutritionist and endocrinologist explained the existence of a list of food products that cannot be combined with meat because they would worsen the absorption of iron in the body and would cause weight loss problems.

Meat and dairy products should not go together in a meal. What happens is that the calcium contained in cheese, milk, yogurt, worsens the absorption of iron by 50-60%, says the expert.

It is important to take this into account when it comes to the diet of children, pregnant women, and patients diagnosed with anemia, according to the specialist.

The nutritionist further added that it is healthier to eat meat accompanied by a glass of citrus juice or water than with coffee or tea because the polyphenolic tannin present in these drinks also reduces the absorption of iron.

According to the endocrinologist, people who suffer from obesity or overweight have to choose very well the foods with which they combine meat because it can be a bad idea to make some of the most used in the kitchen.

“Meat is digested worse with starchy foods: bread, potatoes, corn, pasta. This is an acceptable combination, but should be avoided by those who are prone to obesity. Overweight patients should eat meat with vegetables and greens.” , he concluded.
