Weight Watchers. South Beach. Atkins. Jenny Craig. Fat-Free. Sugar-Free. Gluten-Free. Vegetarian. Flexitarian. Pescatarian. Vegan.

Despite consumers’ obsession with food, recent government reports indicate that two-thirds of Americans are considered overweight and obese.

While so many consumers get caught up in the latest diet trends, beef producers from across the nation gathered at the 2010 Boston Marathon to remind people about enjoying a well-balanced diet with beef at the center of the dinner plate. The beef checkoff team comprised of National Beef Ambassadors Mandy-Jo Laurent, Malorie Bankhead and Project Manager Carol Abrahamzon, along with Pennsylvania Beef Council staff Paul Slayton and Lisa Jones. In addition, 13 runners, including Laura Raeder from South Dakota, represented cattlemen in the race by being a part of Team Beef. National Beef Ambassador Malorie Bankhead shares her experiences at the finish line.
