You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!
Depends on what else you eat, as well as your age and gender. If you are a per-menopausal female you need lots of iron and, by not eating red meat, you are passing up a good source of iron. So, unless you are eating lots of chicken liver, or lots of iron-rich vegetables like spinach, you might want to take an iron supplement.
fish is pretty awesomely comprehensive if you eat a variety of species (fatty and lean).... you could track your micronutrients on cronometer.com if you are really concerned!

Tons of fish is probably better for you than red meat, anyhow, but who eats a pound of fish every day?
If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
Thx for the info guys (32 year old female).
I grew up eating so much meet and I had a iron difficiency and very low blood pressure, and whenever I used to eat red meat I felt tired and sloggish (15 years).
I stopped eating red meat (and eggs) and only chicken breasts (no liver) and fish, at the age of 16 years my blood pressure and iron went back to normal.
I started adding eggs to my diet about 6 mnths ago and I'm doing fine. Just had the underactive thyroid issue (T3) the last year and I think that confused all the hormones in my body that caused me to gain 4 lbs and feeling crappy. (5.4f and 129 lbs). I experienced a lot of cravings (nuts & cheese since gaining wait) and started Primal a week ago. (previous diet for about 15 year included no fat at all, only fish & chicken, and some cheese once a month)
I have gained weight since Primal (was 127 nou 129lbs)
