Damn another post in a row from the same guy? LOL.
However, Erin, Ur right - todays meats are not as healthy as they were before we started pumping them up with steroids and feeding them soy based products more than they used to eat before. This has been noted as a concern among some who advocate themselves to be ‘fitness experts’. They note that today’s meats are overloaded with hormones, particularly estrogen (It’s interesting that these same ‘fitness expert’ are rarely bodybuilder types, and often advocate soy as one of the best protein sources around, by outlining all their health benefits, which i forget because, frankly i couldn give a shizit about this type of baloney). However, as CY has already told me, these ammounts are too small to make a difference, even if eaten in moderate to high ammounts daily. Much like the mercury tuna phobia - Everybodys becoming obsessed with how much mercury tuna and fish carry and they advocate eating no more than two servings per WEEK. However, mercury content is ridiculously small, to make a difference even if u eat canned tuna 3 times a day. Last time i checked, if my memory serves me right, mercury content is about 10 parts per million or something like that? any comments, corrections? This looks like this: 0.000010. Small ain’t it? Same thing applies to hormone content - Dont get so obsessed that u forget about all the health and bodybuilding benefits u get from these foods, just because theres an itty bitty ammount of hormone in it.
As a final note, the health benefits of these foods grossly outweigh any possible side effects. Has anyone ever died from eating too much tuna- can u name one? Has anyone lost muscle by the lb from eating hormone loaded meat - no, but ull find that if u eat meats that u will instead GAIN muscle considering ur diet and workouts are consistent with your goals.
Meat is still as rich in protein, vitamins, and things like creatine, carnitine, as ever. Just chomp it down like a big boy.
