Grass-fed beef and free range eggs can help you drop the pounds.
Here in the Midwest, the price of regular eggs and beef have taken a severe cut. Grass-fed beef and free range eggs tumbled too price-wise making me decide to conduct a nutritional experiment. Over a month ago, I finished a weight loss regime at my gym that included intense workouts more suited to the Navy Seals than my 50+ body. During two months of food deprivation and severe workouts, I lost a grand total of seven pounds. Very disappointing.
After this, I decided to go back eating as usual, except changing to grass-fed beef and free range eggs. I didn’t give up going to the gym, but my exercise regime was of the milder sort consisting of occasional weight lifting, walking, and yoga. The weirdest thing was I started dropping weight. As first, I didn’t believe it since I wasn’t trying, but the scales and my favorite jeans proved it.
Even though, grass fed and free range cost more, I do look for sales. My local organic grocery occasionally has a sale on beef. When that happens, I stock up. As for the eggs, often you can find someone nearby who has free range chickens, if not a dollar or two more isn’t too much to pay for improved health.
Another aspect to keep in mind, is the diet of the cow or the chicken. All the chemicals that are going into the animal then goes into you. Often these chemicals cause issues with not only weight gain, hormones, but exacerbates other health problems.
My other personal example was I left free range eggs boiling on the stove. I forgot about them as I have done in the past with regular eggs. The pan did boil dry and the eggs cracked. What didn’t happen was they didn’t explode or leave an awful smell behind. It made me wonder about the caged chicken’s diet that cause the egg to smell horrible and the shell to be thinner. Whatever it was, it couldn’t be good for me.
In conclusion, the grass-fed beef has less fat, which contributes to less food shrinkage. The free-range eggs do taste better. I’ve gotten in the habit of buying brown eggs too. Try switching for a month and see what happens.
