Oh. So your dietary guides aren’t unhappy with people eating lots of fat and meat despite their urges to change these ways? Ours are. They have totally abnormal expectations. Once the radio announced some results. A very tiny percentage of Hungarians eat a vegetarian Christmas dinner! Why would they…? I didn’t eat such a thing when I never bought or cooked meat and only ate some 3 times a year. It was Christmas and a family dinner… If ever, I ate meat there…
I was interested and looked up infos. Hungarians still eat lots of fat. Sadly, lots of carbs too so the average one overeats so we have plenty of overweight and obese people.
We do have some vegan/low-fat/no red meat pushing, I noticed it in the last several years. We just don’t want to change our ways, apparently. I am looking forward what future will bring.
I saw 70/30 once in my life, on “scrap meat”. Otherwise the cut is listed and that’s it. So I usually have little idea about the fattiness of my meat, my tracking is quite inaccurate but it’s fine.
I only know the fattiness of my processed items (or not when I select the meatiest by far pork belly piece). And I know it vaguely for eggs. But my fresh meat, that is somewhat of a mystery. I do my best to guess and that should be good enough for me.
Indeed, salmon is expensive - but not so extremely much. We buy a tiny piece for Christmas but we are poor and don’t need to eat even more fat than we already do… (And if you ask me, smoked mackerel is better and a small piece goes a long way so we buy that way more often )
Ribeye is even more expensive though.
