Results of a healthy diet experiment and cost - Page 11

post #151 of 261
prefer the taste of grass fed. just depends what you are used to - the majority of the meat produced where i live is pasture fed.

also, although it has less fat i prefer the flavour of the fat.

plus the health benefits are undeniable.

Oh the guy with the room temperature IQ from the other thread, and I qoute:



Enough said.

There is absolutely no reason your body needs that many carbs, unless you are preparing to run a marathon or something. And professional marathon runners are hardly concerned with a lean physic, as they are already emaciated.
Eh, I'm bored now.

Living in the country and not being afraid to get my hands dirty has it's benefits. For the most part I grow or kill everything I eat. In terms of quality I doubt anything you buy at the store/market is better than what I eat everyday and I know where all of it came from. Another benefit of putting some time into what you eat is the cost. I basically eat for free.

Learn how to hunt and fish. Find somewhere to plant a garden. You'll eat well and save a boatload of money.

Sustenance fishing in Texas would mean living on bass, perch and catfish.
I'll stick to tuna and salmon.

You can catch Crappie, any number of tasty sunfish species along with trout in Texas.

It has nothing to do with being critical or hating on anyone. I personally think it's ludicrous to spend 11K a year on supposedly healthy food per person. It's done in rural America everyday for a lot less money and that's without gardens, hunting or fishing. Plain and simply people get caught up in things that really make no difference in food quality and then buy into it lock stock and barrel at ridiculously inflated prices.

As far as having a healthier lifestyle and diet is concerned that's not rocket science either. All that is required is a little common sense and knowledge.

This is great and quite the luxury. You know exactly what you are putting in to your body (and it's FRESH!) unless you have one of those Conagra chicken farms But really, I wish I could do this

The thing is most people can do at least part of what I'm doing. You can grow tomatoes and a few pepper plants on an apartment patio. Most people can find a place to at least go fishing once in a while. Others might be able to go deer hunting locally without spending an arm and a leg. Almost any city dweller can take a drive out to a rural area and find out who is raising good cattle and make a deal to buy half a steer. While they are out there it's not hard to find a real farmers market with whatever happens to be in season produce wise at bargain prices.

That's too skinny. You should lift some weights.

Thanks. There was no mention of lifting weights in my original post.

This. Or at least that was the intention.

I enjoy reading about the OP's experience, but I will admit the whole thing seems a bit misguided. It is as if there is some suggestion that results he has achieved is due to the "high quality" of the food he is eating. The "results" are pretty much exactly what I would expect of any relatively slender dude eating 500 cal below maintenance, regardless of food quality. It's one thing to love filet, it's another to say you are 6% bf because of filet vs top sirloin.

Well this thread went off on a wild tangent, but I did learn a lot about steak. It also seems like some of you have lived some pretty interesting lives.

As for the topic at hand, I like healthy eating like the next man, but I don't know if it's necessary to cut out so much. Is moderation and a good exercise routine not enough? Either way, props on your accomplishment OP.

Man, I could eat perch almost every day! Bass is great too if you grill it right.
