    I posted about it here http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread20415.html

    Haters gonna hate, what can ya do? Their self-schema is contingent upon hatin', so all you gotta do is state the facts and let them keep on fuming.

    Points of contention: Carnosene, carnitine, CLA, alpha-lipoic acid, all highly abundant in grass fed meat, all have clinical levels of positive activity and are not found in as great quantities in poultry and pork. Plus ruminants naturally produce less omega 6. There are some terrible terrible arguments against red meat which I cover in shallow detail in that post and link to some better detail. There is just so much to say about the issue.

        I eat red meat several times a week usually. These days I'm more into fish though as I have some kind of fish nearly one or twice every day.

          Eat it as often as you like. Unlike CW, we love our fatty ribeyes and believe it is quite healthy!

          My diet is center around 100% grassfed/corn fed red meat (beef, lamb, goat, bison) game, and wild caught seafood, with little pork/poultry. I do this because it helps keep omega 6 as low as possible.

          Try to get organic/100 grassfed as much as possible.

            I try and eat read meat - specifically wild game meat - at-least once a day. I believe it is incredibly healthy, and a nice bit of fat doesn't hurt either.

            However, I suspect that these type that advocate butter-fried bacon and sausages are probably indulging in a bit too much of a good thing (as I wash down a hunk of salami with coconut milk).

              Red meat, white meat. It's a completely invalid concept.

              The primary defining factor in whether animals are white meat or red meat is whether their muscles are mostly fast-twitch or mostly slow-twitch. Slow-twitch muscles are used often, for extended activities like constant walking, standing or flying. It has a lot of the protein myoglobin, which stores large amounts of oxygen to support this long-term energy use. Myoglobin is reddish in color, sort of like hemoglobin in blood, which is why red meat can look so bloody.
              Take a look at what we call white meat before you cook it. It's pale pink. A shade of red, really. You cook it and it turns white. You cook red meat and it turns gray. But we don't call it gray meat. Meat is meat.

                I love red meat. I go with what my body is craving. Sometimes its red meat, sometimes poultry or fish. But I do try to make sure I am eating grass fed and as lean as possible (unless its a ribeye of course)

                People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                  I know I feel far better when I eat red meat (& liver) several times a month, but I am now eating mostly grassfed. Prefer meat on the rare side. Carpaccio is a favorite meal.

                    Red meat with fat attached is ftw 100%. Who is arguing against a lamb chop or 3 on here?
                    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/

                      I was raised a vegetarian, and had never eaten a mammal in my life until this fall. I have significantly more oomph with beef in my diet than without - I think I may have been borderline anemic before.

                      Now, I eat grassfed beef almost daily. Soon I'll be adding in some goat and bison. I wish I could get game and lamb too! Like Zed, I focus on grassfed ruminants and wild fish, and less on poultry and pork to optimize my n-6:n-3 intake while minimizing total PUFAs. Plus, I love my meat raw or rare, and grassfed steaks and wild fish are the safest choices. Yum.

                      If your meat is grassfed and from a good source, there is no reason why you would need to choose leaner cuts.

                          I enjoy it, eat it on a daily or near daily basis. I know that I also have a penchant for becoming anemic, so I make sure I eat it at least every other day. I've found that, for both taste and positive effects, rare- medium rare work best for me and I need to cook it in an oil or solid fat.
                          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                            I was trying to research to find out what the most recent poop is. I have been eating more beef lately than usual. Today alone, about 110g of red meat. I am still under my calories, but my protein for the day was about half again as much as it should be. So I was just wondering if it was too much of a good thing.

                              I only eat it about 5 days a week, so I guess maybe I could eat a little more of it.
