Summary: Our data indicate that caloric restriction leads to a marked improvement in glucose metabolism and body-fat composition, including liver-fat content. The marked reduction in liver fat might be mediated via changes in ferritin levels. In the context of caloric restriction, there seems to be no additional beneficial impact of reduced red meat intake and increased fiber intake on the improvement in cardiometabolic risk parameters.

Key Takeaways

Reducing red meat has no impact on heart disease and metabolic disease. Increasing fiber also has no impact, but calorie restriction leads to improvement.
