    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?
