While I agree, and at risk of OTing my own thread, it's not good to eat too much of anything! 5 strips of bacon is gross no matter how you look at it. Unless you're talking per week.

Also, I think inactivity is the real culprit. Eat what you want, as long as you have to catch it/ grow it.

ITA. It's why so many people (myself included) are lactose intolerant. If we didn't get WIC, I wouldn't buy it. But, it's free, and can be put to use, so, I'm not going to get on my high horse

Whole milk... Raw, of course.

Oh.. Most lactose intolerant people can drink raw milk just fine (because it still has all the good enzymes).

Naturally raised meat is far more healthy than mass produced meat. So, grass fed cows have better fats in them and don't cause the health problems that corn fed cows do. And pastured chickens create healthier eggs. I think that (and inactivity) is a big part of it,
