    look at all this frozen skirt-busting fat crap the butcher sliced 5 minutes before, right through the looking glass

    pay for your 40$ filet bro, it'll make you feel better on the internet


    id hazard a guess that that steak came from a grain fed cow. not really what the OPs point is all about.

    this is a thread about healthy paleo type eating and people are arguing over how good the fattiest cut from a selectively bred grain fed beast is[​IMG]

    Pretty sure this is worse.

    Sounds like a question you should be asking yourself. I think you should PM the guy above, sounds like you could help each other out.

    Looks like healthy eating does nothing for a shitty attitude. [​IMG]

    It provides me entertainment. This thread was quite civil until a few members decided to express their tiny penis syndrome by specifying that the type of meat I consume is only for women, never eaten by chefs (bullshit), and that they eat much larger pieces of meat (whooptie-fuckin-doo.)

    Oh the guy with the room temperature IQ from the other thread, and I qoute:
    Allow me. Pasta is a carb overload; carbs are used for energy. What energy do you need while sleeping? End of discussion. Actually, for anyone attempting to maintain a lean physic pasta should be avoided. 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.
    Enough said.

    absolutely, you could tell by the color of the fat, and of course the price wouldnt support free range grass feeding.

    eschewing the ethics of feeding ruminants grain, keeping on taste, the barbecuing circle by large favors grain fed for its higher fat content. you'll find in a lot of blind taste survey show preference for grain fed meats. ive had the grass stuff in tuscany, bsas, etc... source of cows diet is 2ndary to the cut and preperation as far as im concerned

    Agree here. Prefer the taste of grain fed beef.

    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.

    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 [​IMG] 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.
