The Living Force
I don't think calories are the point when you compare meat and veggies; nutrient-dense foods should be the main concern, so taking this into account, you compared meat, but you haven't specified which kind, is it muscle meat or organ meat? If you compare for example, liver and carrots because of their content in vitamin A, liver is rich in Retinol which is the bioactive form of vitamin A, this means the body can use it immediately; carrots are rich in beta-carotene which is called PRO-vitamin A, this means our body needs an enzyme to transform it into the form the body can use it, and It cannot be said with certainty that this enzyme effectively in all people. Or the B vitamins, iron and zinc, liver is rich in all these, while carrots are not.I forgot to register that 100gr of meat equals to 250gr of carrots in calories
Also, there are nutrients that are NOT find in any veggie, like vitamin B12, creatine, carnosine, taurine and HEME iron. These are essential for the proper functioning of our body.
In this context, I'd like to share here a lecture that I posted in another thread, but I think it's relevant to share in this thread. It is all about plant toxins in an evolutionary context. The lecture was given by George Diggs, at the Ancestral Health Symposium.it's surprising that someone doesn't like purely technical information about Food Chain.
