The Startling Truth About Grass vs Grain Fed Meat

benefits-of-grass-fed-beef

You’ve heard all the hype (and well-founded hype it is) about omega-3, and you know what you should be doing to add more of this essential fatty acid into your diet, but it’s sometimes easier said than done, isn’t it? After all, there’s only so much salmon and oily fish a person can eat besides which – as good as your intentions are, and as powerful as a good quality omega-3 supplement can be – you don’t always remember to take your capsules. Of course you could always up your intake of certain green vegetables, of eggs and walnuts, but who can say whether it adds up to enough of the stuff?

According to strength/conditioning coach and hormone expert Charles Poliquin, you need between 35-40 grams of omega-3 every day. A typical salmon steak has less than 5 grams, so even if you’re not concerned about mercury and genetically modified or farmed fish, the reality is that your diet is most likely lacking in this important fat. And whether you’re after weight loss, greater mental acuity, healthy cell and hormone development, or just plain old better health and energy the truth is that if you’re not getting enough you’re selling yourself quite quite short.

But here’s the good news.

Did you know that there’s a source of omega 3 you probably haven’t even heard of? One that tastes fantastic, is easy to access, and comes with a host of other big health bonuses? I’m talking about grass fed beef, along with other grass fed red meats (lamb, game meat, wild meat – although that could be harder to access). Typical store-bought meat, unless it specifically states otherwise and is certified by a trusted organic food board, is not only factory farmed (an abhorrent process that causes me to in part agree with those who don’t eat meat) but is raised predominantly on grains and soy.

This is a huge problem in that cows and other land animals are a) not designed to eat foods other than grass, and b) often end up ill and covered in sores due to this unnatural diet. Hence the prevalence of antibiotics and hormones in conventionally farmed meats. It doesn’t take more than a little common sense to realize that the residues of these toxins are making their way into our bodies if we choose to eat these animals – and what’s more, your body protects you by stuffing them into your fat cells, which causes them to expand. But as if that weren’t bad enough, meat from animals raised on grains has been found to be high in inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, and low in omega-3 fatty acids.

So why don’t the farmers just feed them grass?

  • Grain and soy are both super cheap food sources – especially those grains deemed not fit for human consumption
  • Eating this way fattens them up far quicker than a grass-based diet
  • It doesn’t require lots of expensive land
  • The typical consumer has no idea how important it is to eat grass fed meat, and probably doesn’t know or care how their food has been raised
  • The food and restaurant industry even supports the rearing of grain-fed meat by highlighting it as a good thing on many fine-dining menus!

It’s already quite obvious how meat from grass fed animals is better both for the animal and for your body. The chart above, if you consider it in reverse, shows quite clearly how the longer an animal is reared on grass, the higher its levels of omega-3. By definition, this meat also will contain a lower amount of omega-6, which is present in most vegetable oils such as corn, sesame, soy, sunflower and safflower, and is typically overeaten in our western diets. Furthermore, grass fed meat has far greater levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a fairly recently discovered good fat which, in its natural form, has been shown to fight off cancer, promote fat loss, and assist in lean muscle gain. CLA all but disappears in meat raised purely on grain and soy.

So how to access this all-important fat and protein source?

As mentioned earlier, it’s not usually as simple as hitting your local store or even the market. And good luck asking your butcher which of their meats are grass fed – I’ve found most look at me blankly (which I find truly shocking). I buy all my meat, eggs, and dairy organically, knowing that organic meat is, by definition, typically free-range and reared according to nature. Unfortunately, however, it’s no guarantee, which is another reason you must always source certified organic foods, and – when it comes to meat – check to be sure it’s grass-fed. Some of the best places for organic meat include farmers markets (do a Google search to see what’s on in your area), specialist organic butchers (again, you’ll need to search), and occasionally you’ll find an organic butcher at a regular market.

It’s true that it does take more effort to eat this way, but I’d say it’s a helluva lot greater inconvenience to deal with the long-term health and weight consequences of poor dietary choices.

Wouldn’t you?

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.
