Weight Loss Nutrition – this to transform all the foods right inside your kitchen from Fat STORING foods to Fat BURNING foods that automatically “REPAIR” your broken metabolism and force your body to burn more stubborn belly fat.
We all want to eat healthier, nutritious meals, so when cooking your beef dinner, ask yourself this… grass fed vs. Grain fed… What’s the difference and why does it matter for weight loss nutrition and general health?
Many people don’t realize that we are not ONLY what we eat; we are also what our food eats.
To save money, most beef farmers use grains (soy, corn, etc.) and antibiotics to feed and fatten their animals.
This kind of diet is incompatible with their digestive system (because cows were meant to eat grass) and takes a toll on their health.
That’s why that grain-fed steak on your plate contains little to no omega-3 (essential fatty acids), very little vitamins and minerals, and too many inflammatory omega-6 fats that contribute to body fat.
On the other hand, feeding cows with a natural grass diet just like the “good old days” makes their meat one of the most nutritious and healthiest weight loss protein foods.
In fact, grass-fed beef contains 2 to 4 times more omega-3, 4 times more vitamin A and E, a lot more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid — a natural fat burner), and less fat and calories per pound than regular grain-fed beef you buy at the supermarket.
The problem is… Some farmers will feed their cattle grass for most of their lifespan, but “finish” them with grains in the last months of their lives.
In other words, that cow grazed in some fields and then had some grain for dessert.
Sadly, the FDA says that these can be labeled as “Grass Fed” even though it’s not completely accurate. It’s another label LIE that we are often led to believe.
Grass-fed beef must meet our strict quality standards, which require that animals are raised on an all grass diet with no antibiotics, added growth hormones and no grains.
We know just how confusing this can all be so how can you be sure your beef is grass-fed?
The best way is to buy local and get to know a beef farmer personally. If you are buying from a local butcher that you know, just ask about your beef.
If you are looking at labels in a grocery store, look for things like “USDA Grass Fed”, “no added growth hormones” and “no antibiotics”.
This will ALL lead to better nutrition for your fat loss and overall health.
