Overweight? Grass Fed Beef Busts Obesity

Succulent grass fed beef recipes. . .

Because meat from grass-fed animals is lower in fat than meat from grain-fed animals, it is also lower in calories. (Fat has 9 calories per gram, compared with only 4 calories for protein and carbohydrates. The greater the fat content, the greater the number of calories.)

As an example, a 6-ounce steak from a grass-finished steer can have 100 fewer calories than a 6-ounce steak from a grain-fed steer. If you eat a typical amount of beef (66.5 pounds a year), switching to lean grassfed beef will save you 17,733 calories a year—without requiring any willpower or change in your eating habits. If everything else in your diet remains constant, you'll lose about six pounds a year. If all Americans switched to grass fed beef, our national epidemic of obesity could significantly diminish.

Broiled Beef Steak

1. Turn oven regulator to "broil" or to highest degree of setting.
2. Trim any surplus fat from meat; if meat is very lean, brush surface with butter.
3. Slash fat edge of meat at 2 inch intervals to prevent curling.
4. If desired, steak may be rubbed with cut side of clove of garlic or spread thinly with prepared mustard.
5. Lightly grease broiler rack; add steak.
6. Place broiler pan at least 1 1/2 inches below heat. The thicker the steak, the greater the distance.
7. Broil with broiler door open.
8. Broil about 4 minutes; season; turn.
9. Broil second side about 4 more minutes; season; serve at once.
