Last week I went out for Greek food and got a meal with a lamb kabob and a steak kabob.  Before this, I have never eaten more than a couple of bites of lamb.  Lamb is a beneficial, whereas beef is a neutral, for Bs, so I was excited to try it.  The funny thing is, the lamb just didn't seem to do anything for me, but the steak was great!  All I can go on here is how they tasted, but at this point, foods that are good for me usually taste better than foods than are just so-so/neutral.  What gives here?   Maybe I should consider beef a beneficial for myself.

this is an effect as Peter described it : once upon the time your genes
dealed with the very first of *something* and then adaptation begins

The same for me with veal....I've eaten it makes now some years and then I've got the feeling weew makes me much stronger......no sideeffects here...but when trying to eat beef...and instant jump to the *waters* .....

I had the same thing happen with turkey. As an O secretor turkey is neutral for me, but I've always felt better eating it on a regular basis. Lo and behold, turkey is a diamond superfood for G2 Gatherers!

The taste test may work for you, but for many it does not.

What tastes good to me is ice cream and cheesecake, both horrible foods for me.

My understanding is that taste preference is determined to a large extent by what a child eats in the first few years of life. No exposure to lamb in early childhood, makes one likely to prefer beef that one was exposed to early in life.

I feel the same way about tomatoes... (kidding)

Yes, it's difficult, especially when you have teens who won't try anything...

Well I have always had a quite mixed reaction to lamb
minced lamb makes me sick - lean whole pieces - is ok - can be rather tasteful
- but I dont feel healthy or energetic when I eat it
- while beef makes me feel great:  it is what I choose every time I need a pick up- feel run down or a little bit sick - I guess it is my BO ness that come out

Lamb any time, though my Swami says that beef is top beneficial meat as well.

Hi Drive,

I find beef highly beneficial for me as well. I'm glad you said it because that's how I was feeling.  Lamb does the same thing for me, but beef is easier to find.  

It's not just a taste thing it's an inner wellness feeling after I eat it.

Ditto for me as well with the lamb... although the Swami says I have no top beneficial meats...

Lamb has floated my ship ever since the first time I tasted it. Whereas my Gatherer daughter feels that way about beef.

But another thing to consider is if you have not been eating a superfood before, it may take some time before your body shifts and wakes up to it.  My tastes have changed a lot since switching to the GTD, and certain foods now feel great to my body that never did before.  It might be worth eating lamb regularly for a few weeks and see what happens before deciding.

Both lamb and beef make me feel good but lamb makes me feel better.  Turkey is so so.

I feel like that from flax seeds. Maybe Isa is right and it just takes time for the genes to do a turn around..I'm trying to incorporate flax in my diet..and I feel a little queasy when I eat it..don't know why.

I find no difference in how either one makes me feel but I do prefer lamb because it is easier for me to chew.  I look forward to my lamb chops.

Ok, I supposed ice cream would still taste good to me, but it would cramp up my stomach, if my last couple of goes with it are any indication.  I definitely had beef as a child.  Beef roasts were a staple in my family.  You are probably right that I need to eat more lamb to get a taste for it, but it is very expensive compared to beef!

I'm happy to see that some other Bs out there have experienced this too.  Those SWAMI results are encouraging.  I guess I'd need to eat lamb more to see if it makes me feel as good as beef does.  I know one thing, my stomach thanks me for beef!

Yeah Drive,

my entire body thanks me for beef.  

and I thought I was such a healthy person when I gave up red meat for all of those chicken salads. eeewww....

today I mixed ground lamb & beef for a patty. I feel pretty darn good. I wish you had access to the ground lamb that I have. It is very affordable.

I love lamb, beef just does not feels right in my body. I think beef takes longer to digest for me. Lamb is my staple meat

Well even if lamb made me feel as good as beef I still wouldnt be able to afford it always:
Lamb costs between 20- 40 dollars pr kg here
and I need to get enough protein or I get cranky - carb= sugar/grain craving :
At the moment I do 4 -5 servings of "red or fourlegged" meat a week ,
and 1-2  servings of poultry a week

I need 2-6 servings of all kind of meat + 1 serving extra due to my rh- status according to LRT
I break it down at:
1 serving of either nz venison or Danish/ Irish lamb and 1-2 servings of organic free-range veal, and 2 servings of organic beef
My poultry is 90 % turkey breast -
It fits well to a O rh- who gets a little extra beef at lunchtimes.

So for me it is a matter of taste-buds, economy and availability how I choose meat

as a former vegetarian I am somewhat surprised how well I feel when I eat beef
