Not getting grass fed beef doesn't mean your diet is busted. It means that you need to do extra work to balance the 3:6 ratio. If halal meat is accessible, I eat halal meat. If not, I opt for beef with known origin and treatment, and obviously,... (more)

Grass fed meat has less fat. So by volume is has more protein. Protein is a lot more satiating than fat.
