How to enjoy this “skinny food” safely. 

With this year’s pink slime debacle, and yet another E. Coli outbreak in the news, ordering a burger may seem like a risk. But skip the beef, and you’re missing out on one of the best “skinny foods” around!

The safest option – mostly grass fed beef – contains “skinny fats,” conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and the Omega-3s. In fact, one brand new study revealed that women who consumed CLA were big losers. They released 9 percent more body fat than those who didn’t get their CLA. In addition, the key hunger hormone was reduced by a whopping 35% – all due to CLA which keeps you fuller longer with greater satiety.

The tastiest source of CLA is from organic beef – beef like that from Ranch Foods Direct – a meat packing and local farmer’s market delivering exceptionally tender, hormone-free, and humanely raised beef which is carefully processed and packaged.

I had the chance to speak with rancher and activist Mike Callicrate recently about his “pasture to plate” philosophy and everything you need to know before you take another bite of meat. Watch our discussion to get the facts on pink slime, meat glues, antibiotics and the big business of beef:


I’m a fan of Ranch Foods Direct beef, not just for what it does contain – high protein, B vitamins, zinc, and the skinny fats – but also for what it does not contain, like pink slime, meat glues, and antibiotics. An unbelievable 89% of the antibiotics prescribed in our country are used for cattle and 60% of those have been banned for over six years.

I have found Ranch Foods Direct grass-fed beef to be unusually tender and flavorful, definitely much more so than other grass-fed beef I’ve tasted. This meat also cooks 10 to 15% faster. Created by Mike Callicrate, Ranch Foods Direct has graciously agreed to give my followers a special discount. Use promo code ‘ALG5’ online at www.ranchfoodsdirect.com or call 1-866-866-6328 to receive a 5% discount with your order – not valid with bundles.

Many of my clients order from Ranch Foods Direct and even with shipping costs pay less money than if they were to buy from their local health food market like Whole Foods.

    The thing about low quality food is it needs all kinds of additional horrible chemicals, sugars and fats to taste halfway palatable. Making it even worse for you!
