It seems that people are growing more and more overweight as the years pass by. There weren’t as many overweight people in the America as there are today and it could be because of the meat industry adding more and more fat to the animals to produce more food. In Western countries, especially, there is a rise in the number of people who are overweight and it could be that the food pyramid is to blame, that is flawed somehow.
- It’s very interesting when you look at our diets over time as generations ago diets were mostly made up of meat and somehow those people were nowhere near as fat as current generations.
- This book supports the idea that as long as you are eating grass fed meat, consuming meat is actually a healthy food option.
- This book also questions whether things like the food pyramid and the food plate are actually accurate and helpful.
