Today we consume 79 pounds of beef per person per year versus 54 in 1909,

I eat well over 200 pounds of beef a year. I will not eat veal because I consider it cruelty to calves being locked in a 4'x3' pen until they are slaughtered. (Just a ranchers opinion) I like my beef bleeding all over the plate. Just skin the cow, brown the edges and put it on the plate. Anything over rare to medium rare is too well done.

Probably eat over 100 pounds of pork in a year. Maybe 20 pounds of chicken and turkey a year. Potatoes and meat are a must for dinner. Wheat bread only, I can't hack the taste of white breads. In a week I'll eat a dozen or more fried eggs. I eat all the fat on steaks, roasts, and pork chops and pork roasts. I love hot spicy peppers, spicy barbecue sauces and truly love garlic. I love fresh homegrown vegetables. In a day I try to drink at least half a gallon or more of water and at least 8oz. of fresh milk. Fast food is garbage in my opinion.

I weigh 160 pounds and am 5'10". My doctor tells me that all my numbers are right in the middle for a middle aged man and some of them are much better than average. I smoke , rarely drink alcohol, beer is a must with Mexican foods we all know, so one bottle is good for me. I don't eat between meals. I only have two meals a day, lunch at 11:00 dinner btween 6 & 7. This is the lifestyle I have led all my life. If I see that I am getting fat I'll drink a glass of water before dinner and in a couple of weeks it's gone. For the past 6 years I have been crippled up with a bad spine. The examing doctor was shocked that I didn't get fat, well I for some reason eat according to my activities. When I was busting my butt from sunup to sundown I ate like a teenager, now I eat like a office worker. The less physical activity, the less I eat. I never work out with weights, never jogged as an adult, I just worked hard physically. What does this prove? Well, probably nothing. My Dad and his Dad were both skinny most of their lives but they didn't eat junk foods or candy either. I found that eating a piece of candy is good for a 20 minute energy boost when I was tired during the day, but have no desire for it normally.

Your right my friend. There is nothing wrong with eating beef. I don't eat veal because I don't like it nor lamb either. But I do eat beef.

Thanks for the ping and I like your post too.
