    Brisket and Chicken Skin.....Healthy? What the Hell?

    CaptainMike Our brother who recently had a heart scare got me to thinking. Everyone thinks after a heart attack you’ve got to eat nothing but boneless skinless chicken breasts and kale. I did as well after my heart attack 5 years ago. As always, in moderation is usually ok. But....get this, brisket and the fat it has, is actually good for you! And so is chicken skin! Go figure. I remembered Texas A&M did a study several years ago on the healthiness of brisket. Check it out. Then....cook more brisket damnit! https://www.wideopencountry.com

      Wagyu fat is heart healthy, so I guess you just need to pony up for better brisket.

        Now I really have to work on getting brisket right. Hey, if I keep practicing on chuckies, does that count too? I mean, it's like practicing for a big game, right?

          There are few things more complicated and difficult to understand and test than how foods affect us long term.

          Anyone who claims to know is probably full of whatever they are trying to sell you that think you should be eating.

            My involvement in the scientific studies done at Texas A&M was extremely limited.

            Agree 100%. We don't know as much as we think we do, and it's probable that we don't all respond to food the same way.

          The notion that eating fat and red meat leads to clogged arteries and the food pyramid that the American Heart Association got squarely behind for decades was based on the results of a study done in the 1950's. The study was riddled with design flaws, among which was that the participants were not randomly selected. Every attempt at replicating the study results with randomly selected samples failed. Even today, about 10 years after Time Magazine did a cover story on the flawed study, doctors are giving dietary advice based on the bogus results.

            Meathead has a few articles that touch on the flawed studies and misinformation out there, even from "trusted sources".

            Just put into practice common sense. All things in moderation. Be active. Don't sit on your couch all day every day eating fried chicken and brownies. Don't assume your appetite is the authority, it can be and often is dead wrong. Move around, use your muscles, exercise, and if you do fat won't hurt you unless your doctor has specific advice for you and your situation of course- in fact you can lose weight eating higher fat diets. You can also gain weight being a vegetarian or vegan if you don't do what your body needs. Intake (eating) needs to match output (actual nutritional needs and energy consumption from exercise, etc), as a general rule.

              I think this line was in a movie? "It's not the food that's killing us, it's what the food is being fed". Goes for all types of food.

                Polluted air going in our veggies means even our veggies won't help us live forever.
