It is not a secret that you are what you eat. If you want to be lean, you need to eat plenty of sources of high quality protein. Protein intake is critical to your success, whether your goal is size and strength, or just a leaner, improved aesthetic.
Grass-fed meat is a method of growing animals for human consumption. Simply, it’s the way meat was produced back in the day before the advent of major meat production companies.
Grass-fed meats are some of the best protein sources to eat, because meats are higher on the food chain than other foods. That means that if they are free-range, organic, and grass-fed, you’ll know that everything they ate was natural and unprocessed, too.
A grass-fed meat, simply stated, is an animal that was fed its natural diet, rather than the mystery diet that many mass-produced animals are fed today. From http://www.eatwild.com/:
Animals raised in factory farms are given diets designed to boost their productivity and lower costs. The main ingredients are genetically modified grain and soy that are kept at artificially low prices by government subsidies.
