Meat is an essential part of a healthy diversified diet. I've heard it said that you wouldn't drag a beheaded cow or chicken into church, so why would you put it into your body... because your body is a temple. To that I say name me a southern church that has never had fried chicken. Granted you don't drag it into the service itself, there they just cannibalize the "Body" of Christ (in most christian churches anyway)... but they have Luncheons all the time... and there's nothing wrong with a hamburger or a good ole piece of fried chicken at church.
My point is it isn't the meat that's bad... but the overly processed and
preserved Fast food Junk and the quantities people often eat is whats
unhealthy. Eat your taco's or white castle from time to time my
friend... that's not the Harm... but there's no need for 17 taco's or 20
The food isn't the problem near as much as the quantities.
Remember for every ounce of meat... you should also have an ounce of
fruit. and ounce of vegetables or grains. meat should be 1/3 of a
healthy meal... not all of it.
That said... we all backslide and eat
more than we should from time to time... but cut back on it. problem now
is the extreme quantities of meat, and its not necessarily good to
replace one extreme with another... like say going on an all vegetarian
diet. And by the way... the body may or may not be a temple... but it is
most DEFINITELY a work engine. Fuel it... but run the tank dry from
time to time before you fill it back up... so the "Old gas" don't
deteriorate in the fuel system and damage it.
Then again... more active
you are at burning through that fuel... the less significant the TYPE of
fuel becomes also. Anyway... that's my thoughts on the matter.
