Although roast beef is not considered to be an extremely lean meat like chicken breast, roast beef still provides a lot of nutritional value. Roast beef is a rich source of both protein and iron, and roast beef is relatively inexpensive and widely available, which makes it a good addition to your diet. You want to check product labels, as nutritional values for roast beef may vary between brands. Roast beef is a good source of protein, which is a macronutrient you need to help build and maintain muscles, to grow and repair tissues, to stimulate your immune system and help produce enzymes and hormones. The protein in roast beef contains all of the nine essential amino acids that your body cannot produce. A three-ounce portion of roast beef provides about 21 grams of protein. The recommended dietary intake of protein is 46 grams per day for women and 56 grams per day for men. And eating roast beef can increase your nutritional intake of iron, which is a mineral you need for red blood cells. Iron is part of a molecule called haemoglobin, which is something that is found in red blood cells and helps to transport oxygen from your lungs into your cells throughout your body. Iron also participates in the enzyme dependent chemical reactions to include DNA synthesis. Deficiencies in iron can result in anemia, which is a condition where by you produce fewer red blood cells and may result in the cells receiving less oxygen.

Roast beef is food that is relatively low in calories, which can be beneficial if you're trying to lose weight. A two ounce serving of roast beef provides just 70 calories, which is 20 fewer calories than a cup of skim milk provides. This amount comprises only 3.5 percent of the daily suggested calorie intake of 2,000. You could burn off those calories in two ounces of roast beef through just seven minutes of jogging. Roast beef is also low in carbohydrates. Roast beef contains just one gram of carbohydrates per two-ounce serving. This makes roast beef food that is suitable for diets that are low-carbohydrate. While such diets necessary for weight loss, you may find success when using eating a diet that is low in carbohydrates. Roast beef provides all of the B vitamins and is an especially rich source of niacin, B6 and vitamin B12. The B vitamins also function as coenzymes, which means that they are necessary for enzymes to do their jobs. In that role, the B vitamins help convert food into energy, but all three of the vitamins may also contribute to heart health.
