I got a notebook from my program outlining food introductions for the entire first year.
My surgeon did not say anything about not eating red meat until 6 months out.
We were allowed lean ground beef, actually, for me plain old 80/20 ground beef worked better than 95% lean but the dietary sheets did not introduce beef steak, roast, et****il we were one year out. I ate it earlier than that, and did not tolerate it well. In fact, to this day, beef steak, roast and white meat chicken seem to "swell" once I eat them and drink my beverage, and I can "lose my lunch/dinner" if I get too full from the meat absorbing the liquid, and I'm 3 1/2 years out. That might be something to think about. It seems the juicier the meat, the better it sits, and medium rare to medium is juicier than well done.
The burnt T-Bone advice may be due to the carcinogens that develop when fat is charred by flames during broiling. That's something that came out a few years ago in popular health news. That used to be my favorite part of the steak, but no more! There's enough stuff in food these days that leads to one disease or another!
