Why We Are Eating More Grass Fed Beef Today.

Grass fed beef refers to the cows feeding on just grass as their diet, and it will yield a more leaner meat and a lesser fat content. 

Grass fed beef will also have more nutritional content when compared to grain fed beef. 

It can have as much as five times more omega-3 fatty acids to the grain fed ones.

Why Calories Don’t Count

Why not all calories are the same, and why we should pay less attention to calories and focus more on what is the actual food we are eating. 

According to Dr Giles Yeo, who is a renowned researcher on obesity at the university of Cambridge, every calorie count you see is wrong.

Take protein. Only 70 percent of 100 calories of protein that we consume will be used as fuel inside us for energy. The other 30 calories are actually used to metabolise the protein to enter our bloodstream.

Let’s assume the cash register is a cell in our body, the cashier and the bar code reader is insulin and the grocery items that need to be scanned is glucose.
