  • Too tasy to be good?

    I eat lamb (I guess almost everyday and always pan-fry it in grass fed butter for a long time to get a nice crust to form. It's very delicious and oily. I eat it with a lot of salad greens. The only variation to this is 3-4 times I'll replace the lamb with King Salmon and or grass fed beef. For snack, I eat grass fed cheese (kerrygold) OR rarely sardines.

    From this, I guess I'm getting higher omega 6 than 3?

    If you don't already, you can supplement with fish oil capsules to raise your Omega 3 levels. Do you eat omega 3 eggs?

      The omega 3 eggs is pretty much non-existent considering that it has something like 3g of omega 6 and only like 0.2g of omega 3. I also use tons of grass fed butter but that is probably very low in omega 3.

      One can of sardines provide about 1g of omega 3 .

        if the info here is correct, you're getting omega 3's from the lamb and beef if they're grassfed

        Meat from grass-fed animals has two to four times more omega-3 fatty acids than meat from grain- fed animals.

          best way to find out is to put your meals down on a program like FitDay or Nutricalc. I eat fish 5 times a week and I only eat grass fed beef and dairy but my ratios still come out to 1:1.5 or 1:2. It is pretty tough to get to 1:1. I found that my highest omega 6 fats are coming from avocados.

          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.

            As per Don Matesz you could eat 6 lbs of ruminant meat (beef, venison, lamb/mutton) a week and an extra pound of fatty fish like salmon would balance all the O-6s.

              Yeah - fatty fish or fish oil is the way to go for omega 3s. Check it out on nutritiondata.

                That makes sense to me. Isn't most of the fat in the ruminant saturated and monunsaturated?
