Personally, I wouldn't feed it to them, but to each their own I guess!

But ALL article , guides and discussion says that feeding meat to Betta 3 times a week is the minimum requirement to prevent their digestive system go haywire

Because Betta are a natural CARNIVORES (eats meat) living thing .....

And feeding meat to them is also a diet full of protein for them to recover from injuries , replenishing colors , brighter colors , healthier respiration system and maintaining amout of acid in stomach ...

When I first got my Betta he wouldn't eat what I offered him. I started off with BettaMin flakes and he did not like them one bit. They stayed floating at the top all day until slowly sinking to their demise. I tried Wardley Shrimp pellets after that but they seemed to be too large and heavy for the poor fella (I forget where it was suggested to feed that to him but that was a very poor suggestion. Their so heavy they floated to the bottom.) I tried Tetra Blood Worms -freeze dried- after and he still wouldn't eat. I finally picked up a bottle of Tetra Betta floating mini pellets. He LOVES them!! If anyone has a suggestion for a better quality mini pellet feel free to message me.

7 pellets seems like a lot. my fish always are looking around for some extra food hidden. betta will eat any food that you give them and pretty much all of it. 4-5 pellets should be fine and fast him every once and awhile too. i feed my guys 3 pellets a day(they're kinda big) and fast them a few days a month.

Don't let them trick you; they always act hungry! You definitely don't want him to get bloated, so I'd cut down to 4-6.

As far as meat goes, bettas don't naturally eat land animals, so I wouldn't feed it to them; I don't know if it would really do any harm, but it's not biologically appropriate. You could get some frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp or daphnia though. Frozen fish foods are great for them, and they really love it!
