    I just finished reading this book but she makes a very good case about eating buying grass fed chickens and beef.


    It would appear that we are all in agreement that eating more like a caveman is better for us so I think the same logic should be used with our food stuffs.


    This book is saying the same thing other writers are stating but for whatever reason her words stuck.


    Good book, I don't agree with her solutions.


    Off to the farmers market.

      It's a bit disheartening that the more eggs I eat, the less satiated I am. Otherwise I'd still be eating a ton of them! But now they're strictly a side dish, along with chicken (too low in fat) and bacon and sausage, even minimally processed as the sugar, salt and flavorings tend to increase my cravings (thinking I'm hungry when I'm not, as well as making me think about eating things I've decided not to). That's the long way of saying I eat mostly beef -- depending on what else I have that day, anywhere from a quarter pound to almost two pounds.


      As for grass vs grain, I buy grassfed now and then from some farms in the area, but most of it is grainfed from an excellent local butcher. I eat as little mainstream supermarket meat as possible, like when I'm eating at a friend's or with my family. This is primarily a financial consideration, but should the books allow it, my freezer is empty and waiting for a quarter grassfed cow this fall. Even though I don't have a baseline for comparison, I'm looking forward to seeing some lab results when I can swing that expense as well -- Charles Washington makes a point of stressing how healthy he is on grainfed beef, most of it cheap stuff, reasoning that although grain is an unnnatural diet for cows 1) better they eat it than us, and 2) feeding cows grain enables us to feed more people with said cows. Personally I'd prefer to eat all grassfed if for no other reason than BECAUSE it's an unnatural diet for the animal which necessitates unusual measures to prolong its life until slaughter. But in the absence of mo' money, I'll buy the best I can afford in a constantly ongoing balancing act of compromises with my other expenses.

        Frogfarm - You find eggs don't satisfy you either?! I guess I'll have to start cooking mine up with bacon, if I could ever find any at Publix without nitrate...Hmmmm...Tough call..


        Well, isn't grainfed chicken better than grainfed beef? I try to tell myself that at least..

          Jess, check out my post from the other day:

            I eat 1 or 2 eggs plus 6 to 8 oz of meat (fish, poultry or beef) which over the last three months has averaged about 60g of protein per day (according to my MyNetDiary.com stats).

              Jess, my Publix carries Maverick Ranch bacon. It is uncured and nitrate free. See if yours has it or can get it.

                This is a good thread. I will be getting a chance to go completely primal for 4 days next month.


                I am planning to eat a Kg (2pounds) of meat (fish etc), including the bones, per day, and little veggies. I will be adding a lot of fats. I think will be using half a Kg of fermented cream for marination. Maybe more for cooking.


                From comments here, it seems that 1Kg might be on the higher side.

                  I'd say just figure out what your appetite is. If your appetite is for 2kg of meat a day and your weight is doing what you want, I wouldn't worry about it. But don't waste the meat stuffing yourself past when you're full.
