Too much iron may boost appetite
You may want to cut down on your red meat intake. Researchers from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found that consuming high amounts of dietary iron, often in red meat, suppresses an appetite-regulating hormone called leptin. And since humans can't excrete iron, having a high amount in your diet may trigger overeating due to increased appetite. Study authors also said high iron amounts are associated with an increased risk for several conditions, such as diabetes and Alzheimer's.
