Any suggestions for meat substitutes?

I like burgers for bulking because they’re fairly convenient and cheap, but I worry a bit about long term health as far as cholesterol and stuff goes. I’m healthy, but all the the same I figured it’s still good to add in more variety.

I’ve considered mixing in some other kind of protein source into my diet that’s plant based.

I’ve heard people suggest Beyond or Impossible, but have yet to try them myself.

quorn is the best I have found. In terms of ingredient profile/macro ratio, though.

I eat pretty much nothing but meat and have for some time. Had a few test done awhile back and found that I have zero plaque build up. It’s strange there’s science to the carnivore/keto diet that can actually do some pretty amazing things for you. It’s the overly processed carbs and junk that’s in the modern diet thats the issue it seems.

The whole meatless “meat“ is ridiculous IMO of course. I could never be vegan lol. I‘ll continue raising pigs and getting my half’s of cows.

I’ve just been eating fish/egg whites lately, no chicken either and I’m noticing amazing benefits. Fish is definitely the best. I never liked the meat substitutes except for quorn, which is a good ratio and has an acceptable ingredient profile. The other ones , though, you’re better off eating real meat.

If you look at a lot of the processed substitutes they are oftentimes worse fo you than what they are substituting. For instance the impossible burger has just as much sodium, bad fats, fillers etc than the fast food burgers they try and replace.

just buy and cook natural foods and you will be fine. It’s the processed foods to watch out for.

this. There’s nothing unhealthy about eating meat. Just be aware of your saturated fat intake. Also be careful about choice of cooking methods- high heat, direct flame cooking has all the links to disease. Stick to seared, roasted, braised, etc and you can avoid that issue. These meat substitutes have basically no nutritional value in terms of the micro’s. They’re bogus and shouldn’t be allowed to be called food imo.
