Calories & Fat Grams in Buffalo

A question from a customer resulted in my answer coming in from left field.

We are very much enjoying the buffalo steaks we ordered from you. They're disappearing fast.

At one time I had a chart indicating the calories and fat grams in grass-fed buffalo. Every imaginable cut was on it. I swear I found it on your website, but I can't seem to locate it now. I've tried googling the information, but can't bring it up. Can you tell me where to find it?

Why are you seeking that information? That is like trying to define a car by looking only at tire size and square inches of back window. It doesn't even come close to providing all of the nutritional parameters. The only people I know who require that type of information are those who do not eat the Real Diet of Man. They eat all kinds of traditional stuff that in no way provides what human bodies require. So they select a few parameters in nutritional basics and try to adjust with those in order to fix the problems that arise from the overall diet.

I know this doesn't answer your question directly. Rather my answer is intended to introduce a whole new way of viewing food. All grass-fed meats, all of them no matter the species, are perfect foods for other animals. That's because the foundation food for all animal life is the green leaf. Therefore, if you ate nothing but grass-fed meats (doesn't matter if it's buffalo or beef or lamb or goat) you would get 100% of your body's nutrient needs in perfect balance. It's the only food group that does it. And you never need to measure. You just eat and your body takes care of everything else naturally. (In other words, if you are grossly overweight, you'd eat your fill at every meal and in time your weight would plunge to normal!)

The info you seek will not be on my Web site. That's because it would only mislead people. And worst of all, when people follow dietary guidelines of the grain-based foods and transfer it over to the real foods from the grass-fed world, their rules actually encourage them to eat less of what their bodies need most.


  1. Hi Ted,

    Above you said that:

    >> Therefore, if you ate nothing but grass-fed meats (doesn't matter if it's buffalo or beef or lamb or goat) you would get 100% of your body's nutrient needs in perfect balance.

    I thought that grass-fed meat had a ratio of 2:1 for omega6:omega3. Doesn't this mean that we have to suppliment our meat with leafy greens to get the ratio closer to 1:1?



  2. This is a great point to address. The studies I've seen have had the ratios for grass-fed meats vary depending on -- who knows what. :-)

    The ratios have been as high as 2 to 1 and as low as .8 to 1. I know a fellow who ate nearly 95% grass-fed meat plus a few veggies and his personal blood lipid ratio was 1.5 to 1. You can rest assured that if you can get your ratio down to 2 to 1 or lower, you will be as fit as a fiddle.

    What the exact ratio should be for land animals is unknown. Even the ratios in fish from the sea vary. What is known is that when the ratio exceeds 4 to 1, chronic diseases are detectible in experiments with rats.

    It is very important that we source our foods to the green leaf. The green leaf is the animal body's primary source for the proper balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. As long as the green leaf is the foundation of our food we are good to go. That means we either eat the animals that eat green leaves or we eat the green leaves or we eat both.

    Too much omega-3 versus omega-6 will also create a health issue. So, since I eat like a caveman, I will not take omega-3 supplements.
