Call me paranoid. But I could swear it sometimes feels like the medical establishment loves nothing more than robbing us of life’s simplest pleasures.
Sit out on the beach, and they’ll lecture you about the sun. Crack open a beer, and they’ll wag their fingers as they tell you about the dangers of alcohol.
And don’t even THINK about throwing a steak on the grill. Because the nanny state attitude is catching, and everyone from your spouse to your neighbor will have something to say.
Think I’m overreacting? Think again. A vegan in (where else) Berkeley made headlines this spring when she demanded her neighbors stop cooking steak – because the smell is “overpowering and offensive.”
Enough already. The only thing that’s offensive right now is how hard they’re working to SCARE PEOPLE away from meat, and not just because of the smell.
Americans have been brainwashed into believing that all beef is bad. But it’s time to light the grill… savor the smell… and slice into your favorite cut again WITHOUT the guilt.
Because new research confirms beef is PERFECTLY healthy.
End the smear campaign against red meat
The truth is, fresh 100 percent grass-fed USDA organic beef is just about the most honest thing you’ll find in the supermarket. No hidden additives. No creepy chemicals. No secret sugars.
But for years now, the mainstream has been working hard to convince us red meat is unhealthy. They’ve claimed beef has too much fat and cholesterol. And they’ve campaigned for us to cut WAY back or purge it from our menus altogether.
Well, my friend, I hope you didn’t cave into the pressure. Because the new study restores red meat’s reputation.
Researchers found that beef is not only perfectly safe as a regular part of your diet but can also be a HEALTHY addition to your meals. And that’s true even if you’re at risk for diabetes.
The best way to eat beef to keep it healthy
In the new study, volunteers at risk for the disease were put on a very carefully controlled diet for four weeks. Some got 5.3 ounces of beef EVERY day. Others got carbs – especially starches – in place of that beef.
Then, a few weeks after the study ended, they repeated it. But the group that had the beef now got the carbs and vice versa.
Basically, everyone eventually spent a month on each diet. And guess what?
That beef the mainstream has turned into the bogeyman… the meat that’s supposedly too fatty to be healthy… made NO DIFFERENCE in major cardiovascular risk factors.
In fact, the only real difference they spotted was a change in cholesterol. But it’s not what you think.
When folks ate the beef, they ended up with more of the larger LDL particles. You know, the ones that pass harmlessly through the blood vessels rather than the small, dense ones that can stick and form deposits.
In other words, that “unhealthy” beef could actually turn out to be BETTER for your arteries than other choices. So go ahead and enjoy it.
Just remember that adding beef back to your menu is only PART of the formula here. The other part is that it has to REPLACE your carbs.
In other words, choose steak instead of a burger on a bun and hold the fries. And then you can enjoy the beef without the worry.
