2 Food Choice Questions Answered

2 Food Choice Questions Answered

Here I have another short blog answering a 2 questions I have been asked myself plenty of times, as well as seeing them in various magazines and websites. Everyday we struggle in supermarkets, picking which product is best for our needs, but you can't always get a direct answer from any packaging, especially if you don't know what you're looking for. Below I have answered a couple of questions which will hopefully give you useful information for making an informative decision. I will post more Question and Answer blogs over the coming months. If you have any of your own questions, please contact me.

So here we go, the first question I'll be answering today is one asked quite frequently.

Q. Is chicken a better choice than beef? 

A. All in all the answer is not about whether chicken is a healthier choice than beef is, it’s all about how the animal has been raised. Free-range chicken is extremely healthy! The cheaper version has 266% more fat than it did in 1971 according to studies from the Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition! Again with beef, grass-fed is better than grain-fed, with 27% less fat and 10% more protein. It’s important when shopping to check different products and their nutritional information. You will find the healthier more expensive!

And the second question is;

Q. 'Is brown rice a lot healthier than white rice?' 

A. It sure is! The extra fibre content ensures you feel fuller for longer. But if this fibre is removed (as with white rice), rising blood sugar triggers a flood of insulin from the pancreas, which encourages the body to store fat. Studies showed that people eating whole grains lost 2.4 times more fat!

I hope these questions and answers were helpful and please leave comments and check back soon for more blogs. If you have any particular questions you want answering, please contact me @JamesHarvey87 or in comments box. I will try my best to get an accurate answer were I don't know myself, and will do my best to answer all questions, either in a blog, or personally.
