    I get mine a lot cheaper than that by buying in large quantities (1/4 cow) but I know that's not an option for everyone.

      Well that's still only $12 a kilo which should either feed you for several days, or feed a whole family. You couldn't buy takeaways for that. Or maybe you could, but I wouldnt' be able to.

        Yup, but most people could not afford to feed that to dog(s). Heck yeah, good meat is cheaper than junk food, but hands down, a vegetarian diet be it for people or dogs is the cheapest option.

            Which later on they could eat and thus further not support the meat industry...sounds like win-win.

                I would assume not much if one could find a cheap supply of Timothy hay.

                    Knowing how fast rabbits multiply, you'd probably have a few weeks of meat supply before you got home from the pet store with the first bag of bunny chow.

                      Not far from the truth there - it's their ability to breed quickly without being to demanding in terms of diet that has made them very popular meat sources for urban homesteaders. In WWII, British homes were encouraged to raise meat rabbits because of rationing.

                        Can't find any Timothy hay, but Bubba has hay across the street that's pretty cheap!

                          • Newbie here, just wanted to share my experience today which I know will make you all groan.

                            Went to see a new Nurse Practitioner today for a physical and to review blood work. My labs were all very good, even though I was eating crap when they were taken. Thyroid numbers all normal, fasting blood glucose of 98. I need to lose a substantial amount of weight (about 100 lbs) so I was interested to hear their advice (without me mentioning Primal). Here was the advice I was given -

                            -Follow the American Diabetes Association diet (no coconut oil, butter, lots of whole wheat bs, only the leanest of meats etc)

                            -Eat 6-7 small meals a day to "regulate glucose and avoid wild swings"

                            -NEVER skip a meal

                            -Keep lots of "healthy" snacks around - the infamous "100 calorie packs" was brought up several times. She encouraged "grazing" throughout the day.

                            -She recommended 2 supplements - green coffee and "some kind of berry" that she doesn't know much about, but Dr. Oz (!!) had them on his show and endorses them as safe metabolism enhancers! I almost fell out of my chair.

                            She also wrote me a prescription for Metformin.....it will go unfilled.

                            I was trying out this practice but now see it is not for me. What a waste of time!

                              I don't know - you might want to stick with her.

                              And just do the exact opposite of what she says.
