Yes, I am a carnivore! I have tried vegetarian and vegan, now that I’ve tried and error I believe six weeks is plenty enough time to reap the benefits of whatever they have to offer, if any. I am a whole hearted mammal and feel that I need what can be provided by other mammals like protein, amino acids, and whatever else they offer to my genetic make up.
Due to propaganda meaty flesh is always offered as a bad reputation. The good info rarely gets out. Doctor Atkinson, Paleo, and Keto does give it its benefits but because they are associated with dieting, they do not combat the propaganda. And yes there does exist a lot of propaganda. Standing in the Metro Station recently, I saw a little sticker that read, “Bacon Gives You Butt Cancer.” So I am like WTF?? Cancer awareness is a wonderful thing. Now lets educate people instead of scaring them and pointing them in the wrong direction. I ♥️ Bacon!!
I eat two slices every morning Monday through Friday. Last I checked I do not possess all the crazy elements that people associate with eating pork and/or bacon. Hell, two women, twins claimed they ate two slices everyday and lived to be at least one hundred years old. People have eaten 🐗 for thousands of years and then domesticated them into 🐖.
Can bacon lead to cancer? The answer: there does exist a possibility. As it depends on the quality, the quality of anything determines a lot. Those two slices I eat almost daily are uncured, aged, minimally processed, gluten and nitrate free. We have deli meats, sausages, and hotdogs that are made from 🐄 , 🐓, 🦃 , and 🐷 and all are processed. Then precooked with added preservatives, then we heat them again and add dressings to make them taste better. It is not just pork but all over heated processed meats have been linked to cancer. Even if you are grilling as the temperatures are extremely high and not easy to control. Yes, grilling can lead to cancer.
The longer you live, your chances for cancer increase. And most people are obsessed with trying to live longer. Does longer mean a life with limitations? It is solely up to you and the lifestyle you choose for yourself.
My lifestyle works for me. Other than black rice, I do not cook grains at home. I do not eat chicken. Or many fruits and vegetables that are typical to everyone’s diet. I know we are not meant to eat all grains that are offered to us. I will not eat chicken as there does not exist one running wild and never have. The age old question, “What came first the chicken or the egg?” Exists with hidden truth. The egg came first as it was the mutated result of two none chicken birds. At least according to mnn.com, Mother Nature Network. I have read it else where. “Organic” anyone can use this label. Organic chicken even when the 🥚 has been injected with hormones, antibiotics, preservatives and whatever else they want to indirectly give to consumers.
This proves that people have been providing genetically modified organisms way longer before they became media hype. Perhaps to some, current GMOs are worse than previous ones. Is it really? That is why my rule is, it has have had existed or currently exist in the wild.
My rule on Fish. The best fish to eat are ones that are local to your area or region. Like people who live in the Great Lakes area should be able to eat wild caught salmon. Most salmon is farm raised and it is debatable on the practices of any farm raised fish. If you don’t eat tilapia due to recent findings, then you probably shouldn’t eat salmon either. Yes, even if you purchased your “Wild Caught” salmon from Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s more likely to be farm raised than to be wild. When it comes to seafood, even if it is thawed out, does not mean it has never been frozen.
So when you can buy USDA, local, and regional first. Then grass fed next. However, the best source of meat is aged meat. Aged meat no matter the source is much promising on the body. Aged meat will cost you many pretty pennies. Now at home, you can marinate your meat in the refrigerator no less than twenty-four hours and then it will be most beneficial to you. As the proteins and lectins start to break down. As close as we can get to cheaply eating the way our ancestors did.
Please read labels, ask questions, and challenge what you are being given. Know your options and alternatives when it comes to the food you eat.
