Grain Finished vs Grass Finished Meat on the Carnivore Diet


honestly before this experiment I didn’t
really think that eating grass-finished versus grain finished beef would make a
difference in how I thought I was eating grass finished primarily for like the
omega-3 fatty acids that it’s higher in and also because it’s a lot more
sustainable I just I know that the beef that comes from butcher box and the beef
that comes from my local ranch that those cows are treated well that it’s
beneficial to the environment and all of that so it was more of an ethical thing
for me then then that I thought it actually made a difference in how I felt
in my body and then I took a poll from you guys on YouTube and you guys said
about 30% of you said you feel better eating grass-fed grass-finished beef
five percent said they prefer either due to taste or due to how they feel green
finished beef 20 percent didn’t notice a difference and then 42 percent of you
guys and thank you for being honest that you’ve never done an experiment to know
well enough one way or the other how you feel on either quality of beef so first
you probably want to know what like how did I feel on green finished beef and
how did I notice a difference the first thing I noticed was that I was
eliminating a lot more and we had we have this big all video series that I
did a while back about elimination on the carnivore diet and in general you
just don’t go to the bathroom a whole lot on the carnivore diet well eating
all of this grain finished beef I was back to going once a day and it was not
a small amount that you generally expect from carnivore so that tells me that my
body wasn’t digesting this food as much as it does the grass-fed grass-finished
beef and second I noticed I was eating quite a bit more I could finish like my
whole big New York Strip which is one of my favorite cuts of steak but usually it
lasts me like I’ll eat 2/3 for dinner then I’ll eat the rest with some eggs in
the morning or I was eating a whole big ribeye steak and so that was just
something that I noticed was interesting that I was eating a lot more and that if
I wasn’t digesting it as well that kind of makes sense but then those two
together obviously negate the cost a if I’m eating or I may as well buy the
higher quality that’s better for the environment right then last I didn’t
actually feel bad like my mental health symptoms didn’t come back
I didn’t gain weight, I didn’t notice any inflammation but it was also during a
kind of chaotic time of moving and like getting kids settled into school so I
might have had some slip by that I didn’t really notice I didn’t notice
that I was more tired or anything like that so overall like I don’t feel like
it affected my health poorly but I also don’t feel like it was a cost savings at
all and so then since it is better for the environment to eat grass-fed
grass-finished beef I’m going to go back to supporting the regenerative
sustainable agriculture as much as possible since now I know the eating
green foot isn’t even really a cost savings then one thing that I thought
was kinda interesting as it started tasting almost like bread like I still
have some of the steaks and I’m incorporating them in with the butcher
box meat that I’m eating as well so I still have some of the steaks but it’s
taste so much more mild and it tastes almost like doughy bread like it’s still
good like I still enjoy my steaks salted but it’s not something that tastes like
kind of as primal and as gamey which I actually like that flavor as the grass-fed
beef is if you’re sold one way or the other but you’ve never actually tried
eating mostly grass-fed grass-finished beef for a while is something that might
be interesting for you to try like I said you might find that you’re actually
eating less and you’re eliminating less and so you can get by on a lot less now
one more thing I did want to talk about is the cost real quick is you might
think like well why is grass-finished beef so much more expensive than grain
finished beef is because when you finish the beef on grain first of all grain
subsidized and so your tax dollars are subsidizing the cost of the feed for
those beef and second you can fatten up the cow so much faster so they have to
be cared for a lot less there’s a lot less hands-on time there’s a lot less
time than they’re taking up space before the rancher can sell them to be
processed and sold as meat so that’s why it costs more to have grass-finished
beef even though they’re just really eating
what grows naturally from the land which we have a ton of that out here in
Montana so those are my results from a little 10-day experiment thanks for
joining me if you’d like to sign up for grass-fed beef on delivery click
down below but your box is what I’m back to using I actually just got a box today
that I can show you real quick what it looks like so they just delivered this
box to me it came FedEx what happens is nice sturdy box this is one of the
smaller ones I usually get the bigger one it comes in with dry ice
and so this still has a little bit of dry ice I usually put it in the sink and
run some water over it and the kids love the fog the dry ice bog and then butcher
box if you order from them before for a while their packaging wasn’t awesome and
I have to like kind of repackage some of the stuff when it would come after
shipping but now it’s it’s packaged really well right now so you can get it
I like to do my custom box where I get the different cuts that I want because I
always prioritize high fat higher calories which usually means beef and
their pork and their pork is absolutely amazing so if you think you don’t like
pork just try a little bit of the butcher box pork and you might actually
like it so I highly recommend this it feels good in your digestion some people
have said that they definitely feel better eating grass-fed grass-finished
beef versus the conventional beef i definitely feel better as far as
sustainability then it’s better for the environment and then like I said I just
didn’t notice the cost savings between eating more of the conventional beef
versus less of the butcher box if you have tried a similar experiment I would
love to know what you think down in the comments below thanks for joining me
I’ll see you back soon

    Good information. Not sure where we find that grass fed vs grain finished is better for the environment? The whole environment argument is so weak. However, best treatment of our food is important to me.

    Sorry, way, way too expensive. At 1 lb. per day. I would need two boxes at $129 per box per month.

    I do the grass fed beef.I’m a cattle rancher,Eastern Washington State.From my experience you going to have a three year steer to make choice grade beef here.on a all grass diet Cattle can grow so fast.The grains is what makes go faster weight on beef but it still Immaturity.A bison is about five years to maturing to put fat on.Cattle is about three years to reach that point too.Most steers from long time ago before feedlots were here.Was three year old steers.Tom M Eagle

    Cara, in one of your previous videos you had mentioned" Yellowstone grass fed beef" I believe.
    Anyway, does Yellowstone Grass Fed Beef ship anywhere or do they just ship locally? Is there a discount code available?

    Nearly 5 years Keto/ IF/ LcHf/ Carnivore for health reasons ( Autoimmune difficulties) took me two years to realise grain fed meat means I'm eating grains by proxy….. which means increase in chronic pain and inflammation. It is also less satiating. If i eat grains I hunger for them for about 3 days afterwards…due to the opiate like enzymes in wheat which increases cravings, so same applies with grain fed meat. Thanks lovely lady for all you do. x
