I made the switch, and while I don't *feel* different from eating it, the taste difference to me is remarkable! The flavor is just stronger and meatier and so much more satisfying than regular ground beef. I know it's a better choice for me and the animals are responsibly raise, so that's what makes me feel good.

You may not notice any direct changes in health or weight, however, grass-fed is better in many ways.

Cows are ruminants and designed to process grass, not corn, the latter being a grain. Cows are fed grain in CAFO (concentrated animal feeding operation) cause they put on weight faster and it is easy to transport and store grain than it is grass/hay.

Cows fed corn have more omega 6 fatty acids in their meat and fat (humans need a higher ratio of omega 3's, rather than omega 6's) so we could be putting our omega balances out of whack.

Good balance of omega's help with a reduction in inflammation and seem to be implicated in fighting off cancer causing agents in our bodies.

While not all grass-fed is antibiotic free and/or organic, CAFO cattle are routinely given anti-biotics because their crowded living conditions are a haven for disease outbreak. There is more likely to be e-coli in CAFO cattle as well.

While there are a lot of immediate benefits to following a primal lifestyle, some of the benefits are about disease prevention and a healthful long life.

I go to the farmers market every Saturday and there is a vendor there who sells grass fed beef and it is soooo good. I do feel different after I have eaten the grass fed beef as opposed to the grain fed beef. I don't feel as "heavy" afterward.

I switched a while ago, and for me the biggest thing is that now I don't LIKE regualr meat anymore. I know it is healthier too. Direct changes from it? No.

I am still eating regular old beef from my local grocery store. Who has actually switched to grass-fed beef and does it really make a huge difference?

I can do it.
