“Environmentally friendly” and they cite greenhouse gasses from beef?

Not the “cow fart” BS again???

Here is the actual study with the references and funding at the bottom.

Total bias towards a plant-based diet being more healthy than a meat-based.

Thanks for the link. I am very impressed!

…we developed the Health Nutritional Index to quantify marginal health effects in minutes of healthy life gained or lost of 5,853 foods in the US diet, ranging from 74 min lost to 80 min gained per serving…

And we think counting calories and weighing food is such a chore! This is truly astounding and I think this vital nutritional information ought to be added to every nutrition label of every food product. I can see the label claims now:

Evermore, add 15 minutes of healthy life with each serving!

Eat this everyday and live forever!

Environmental impacts showed large variations and were found to be correlated with global warming, except those related to water use. Our analysis also indicated that substituting only 10% of daily caloric intake from beef and processed meat for fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and selected seafood could offer substantial health improvements of 48 min gained per person per day and a 33% reduction in dietary carbon footprint.

Opps! Anytime claims are made about ‘global warming’ and ‘carbon footprints’ we’ve entered the bull■■■■ zone.

Yep. Carbon footprints only apply to the little people. “Rules for thee……. and not for me”.

Deep Fried Corned Beef

I’ve fried canned corned beef in lotsa grease. Good stuff.

Anything from the New York Post will be slanted and is suspect. Might as well quote Fox or OAN.

Maybe so. But Hunter Biden is a grift that keeps on grifting.

At Walmart when customers pull the plastic hangars out of clothing, I ask: “Are you sure you don’t want them? They’re Hunter Biden originals.”

I once had a nightmare…

Hunter Biden and his father are the epitome of rich, privileged, entitled men. And this is who the “woke” party has chosen to represent them.

Riiiiiiight

Does deep frying it make it crispy. When I open the can its a bit soft and mushy when I slice it, i eat a bit then pop the rest in fridge and it is so much better when colder. I may try it fried… I don’t have a deep fat fryer though.


(Michael - When reality fails to meet expectations, the problem is not reality.) #663

I should first say that I didn’t really ‘deep fry’ it in the sense that I have such a utensil. I used a cast iron skillet with enough palm kernel oil to provide a ‘bath’. Only the surface got at all crispy and that not so much. Yes, moreso than straight out of the can. But nothing like KFC.

Pull up a chair, put up your feet, have your pot of coffee at hand. Enjoy.

Apologia Pro Victu Meo

This post is a response to this question posted in another topic:


My ‘short answer’ is yes, I do.

The following is my longer answer.

After starting keto in Jan 2017, I determined over the course of the better part of a year that I had to eat about 2500 calories per day to maintain my overall weight and body comp (14-15% BF). When I started working full-time at Walmart the summer of 2018 I started losing weight so upped my total daily calories to 2700 where I stabilized again. I have since determined that as long as I eat within a ‘caloric window’ of 2400-2700 calories my weight and body comp remain stable. I do not have reliable hunger and satiety signals on keto, so I use my weight and other physical parameters to help determine how much to eat.

Which brings us to:

Fat:Protein Macros

My macros are based on protein, currently 1.8g/kg of total body weight. This is the high end of Bikman’s range of recommended values (1.5-2 g/kg). I went high because as an older male I want to retain as much lean body mass as I can and understand that protein assimilation becomes less efficient the older one gets. I’m active, walk and cycle a lot but don’t pump iron or do any ‘gym’ type exercises. I get a pretty good overall workout at Walmart 5 days per week. I didn’t use magic to determine the numbers 1.8 and 120. I wanted a ratio within Bikman’s high end and I also wanted an amount of protein that would be easy to use for calculations and measurements. So at 145 pounds total body weight, I have a number for protein: 120 grams per day. From above, I also have a number for total calories: 2400-2700 per day. To get that amount of energy I have to eat 240 grams of fat each day (2160 calories).

So, yes, I eat lots of supplementary fat from a variety of sources:

  • Cream
  • Ghee
  • Palm Kernel Oil
  • Red Palm Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Fractionated Coconut Oil (MCT)
  • Cacao Butter

@amwassil Do you think you would need less calories if you would consume more PUFA?
