ok so the Harvard School of Public Health is wrong and the CDC and other science experts. are you a rancher?

True, but they eat the WHOLE animal, it is not the meat and the fat that contain most of the nutrients. It's the organs, eyeballs, tongue and all the stuff we do not really eat as a society.

I eat meat, but I eat a lot of my protein from plants, and I'm fine with it. I DO eat a lot of eggs.

Reminds me of: "Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy mofo"

Bottom line is: No, I won't eat more meat.

For the meat enthusiasts out there, go ahead and eat a steak at every meal for all I care.

Yes, and I agree with you. I get lots of my protein from legumes and such, but I also do use organs etc. to make stocks, which I then use to cook a variety of dishes. The stock is FULL of those nutrients, and no one knows that they are essentially consuming what they'd consider to be disgusting (for whatever reason.)

Interesting that you do that! You are definitely in the minority though. I admit I am quite squeamish about the less used parts of the animal.

Got it. I’ll go eat some mule deer now.
Yep, and some veggies out of the garden. Venison stew.

They don't say what you think they say...and the CDC certainly does take its cues from the food industries, and the Harvard School of Public Health is quite influenced by political correctness.

Be better read. How frequently a person eats during the day (which includes calorie-laden drinks) matters nearly as much as what the person eats.

"Six small meals a day," for instance, is just plain wrong for a human being. It actually increases the chances of metabolic failure and insulin insensitivity, leading to high blood sugar and Type 2 diabetes... even if you're eating the so-called Mediterranean Diet. Hint: People on the Mediterranean do not eat "six small meals a day."

Stress level during the meal also influences how their metabolisms react to the meal. You don't want to eat while stressed (such as at your desk while working), but while relaxed. Hint: People on the Mediterranean do not eat while stressed. They take leisurely meals with friends and family.

Default Dr. Ekberg's Analysis of Eggs

Recently, Sten Ekberg produced a video about eggs. https://odysee.com/@drekberg:4/what-...-for-30-days:8 I like his analytical, methodical, altruistic Swedish approach to things (and only wish he knew how to dress himself, and that his video person would quit with the silly, distracting "lifestyle" clips)

Particularly useful, is Ekberg's well-illustrated breakdown of various protein sources, in regard to their use by the body: energy/calorie sources, vs building blocks for human tissue. (whole eggs win - bigtime)

And I love his egg-buying guide (running the gamut, from factory farm to pasture-raised).

Like Dr. Berg, Dr. Ekberg is a chiropractor/Doctor of Holistic Medicine. My impression is that he's enhanced his degrees with further study, and knows far more than does the average Physician trained in Rockefeller Medicine. MDs generally have virtually no training, where diet is concerned. And what little they've been taught, has been wrong.

A good place to begin learning about the sorry state of knowledge about diet, in the conventional medical community (and within the Dietician establishment), is with Nina Teicholz, an investigative journalist who's delved into the depths of the problem's origins. She's smart and funny, and you'll enjoy her videos/lectures: https://www.google.com/search?client...=Nina+Teicholz
