When you say beef are you referring to conventional beef or grass fed beef?
When I am at home eating, I like to buy organic, grass-fed beef. I just feel it is overall better, and plus cows are ruminants. They are supposed to be eating grass. Feeding them something like corn is just... awful . And grass fed beef is much healthier for you (especially with the omega 3/6 ratio of grass vs. conventional). So again, when I go out to eat, I do not eat meat. Only rare occasions when I am going out with my korean friends, we will go to a korean restaurant,... or a vietnamese restaurant I will eat meat. However, it is nothing like a steak. The meat is in the soup, and it is in very small amounts. Look up "pho" or "seul lang tang" to see what I mean. My mom still buys conventional beef/meat. So I eat them, but it is not often. Before changing my diet, I would eat meat AND fake meat 3 times a day, sometimes more. I eat meat now about.....2 times a week? If that. I've gone 2 weeks without eating any meat. And when I do eat meat for example, I do not eat a whole chicken, or chicken breast. I will make homemade chicken soup..... The only time I eat a huge piece of meat is steak.
I do notice that when I eat conventional beef, I get a few pimples (about 2) around my jaw/cheek area. However, it was not the main cause of all of my cysts and irritation. So in summary, I do still eat conventional meat, but very sparingly, and the effect on my acne is not severe. I would say it is very minor. Mind you my acne was severe, and I was recommended accutane over and over and over and over again. So to me, 2 pimples from eating out with my friend (very small pimples that go away in a day or two), do not bother me or concern me.
Again, I avoid eating meat at restaurants when I KNOW that they have put a marinade on it to make it taste like a certain flavor.
I was once pro-paleo,.... but now I am pro-vegan/vegetarian/plant-based diet. I do not label myself as a pescatarian, or vegan, or vegetarian because I am not one,... since even though I do not have to eat meat for a month, I still eat meat.
Thx xD Would you consider scallops crustaceans? I know farm raised seafood is not good at all.. but I am checking out wild Alaskan products and they have things like Alaskan shrimp and Alaskan scallop. I know crustaceans are the bottom feeders, but if they are wild from the ocean do you think they would still cause problems? I am just wondering I always like to consider what the animal eats and if it's something bad, I can usually tell if it's going to break me out or not.
