Meat and dairy guidelines have changed. What and how much should we now eat? - Health - ABC News

For the first time, the health body put a specific limit on the amount of red meat Australians should consume: no more than three lean meals (totalling 350 grams) of unprocessed beef, pork, lamb or veal a week. It's also important to limit our intake of processed or deli meats, according to Heart Foundation chief medical advisor Garry Jennings.

The limit on eggs, however, has been lifted: they contain good quality protein and are a source of healthy fats.
