This little trick will make a difference ;)


Straight to the point since its a Monday and I’m sure that your tired from the day.

This week my birthday is coming up and one of my close friends gave me a case of organic free range beef (only a fitness buff could really appreciate this gift lol) and this reminded of a lesson that I learned many years ago about how food quality really makes a big difference.

Years ago when I was working the corporate world I moved to Virginia, I was in a new place and looking for my new grocery store. I didn’t know what any of the major chains were so I picked on close to my house to go shopping at. As part of my usual diet I picked up a couple of pounds of the stores meat (back then I use to eat about 2-3 lbs a day of animal meat) and cooked this for my meals for the next several days. Over the weeks I noticed that I was breaking out real bad… I mean I looked like I was going through puberty again! (hold your laughter 😉

It didn’t dawn on me until on day one of my co-workers to me of a place where he gets his free range beef to try out telling me how it taste so much better. So I went and bought about 5lbs and within the next two days my acne cleared up and I felt so much better! My workouts were better, I didn’t have this “puffy” or swollen look to me not to mention that I could tell a noticeable difference in  just my mood.

I was wonder what the heck was in this super beef that I could tell a major difference in so quickly!? It dawned on me that it wasn’t what was IN the meat but what was NOT in the meat that made a difference. (a duh moment)

You see mass produced animal meat is loaded with chemicals, hormones and preservatives that really do have a profound impact on your body. So much so that undertakers report that human bodies do not deteriorate as quickly as they used to. The reason for this, they believe, is that the modern diet contains so many preservatives that these chemicals tend to prevent the body from decomposing too quickly after death Ewwwwwww!











***you really think this is healthy?***

If you need further proof try the argument that meat from a fast food restaurant is the same quality as meat from a free range farm. I’m sure after that you can see my point.

You are what you eat and you are what you put into your bodies and I challenge you to try it for a week. Try just eating free range meat instead of the cheap bulk meat at the grocery store. I PROMISE YOU THAT YOU WILL NOTICE A DIFFERENCE! If you say that the meat is too expensive then take a look at your prescriptions or doctor bills… in my mind they are expensive and I can bet you that bad food quality had a factor to do with it. Your already spending the money just move it over to the quality of food that you put in it.

Sorry for the soap box but its true
