Pork

This article was written by Big Les & was originally published in The MuscleTalker February 2011 edition
 
Although pork is the most commonly consumed meat in the world, forming the staple in many countries, it is not a meat that is commonly thought of as a bodybuilding staple food, and it is a good question to ask why. If we discount any conspiracy theories involving Joe Weider and the US Beef industry then we have to look at its nutritional content.

Of course pork is not just one meat, it is a variety of different cuts, and the nutritional content varies significantly by cut. For example 100g of belly pork contains 258kcal, 19g protein and 20g of fat, while a pork chop weighs in with 227kcal, 15g protein, and 18g fat. However, this is not the whole pork story. Pork fillet is lean; containing 147kcal, 22g protein and 6.5g fat, whereas chicken comes in with 148kcal, 32g protein and 2.2g of fat.

With 10g of protein less than chicken and a similar price it becomes easy to see why pork fails to make a regular appearance on the bodybuilders table. When choosing meat both chicken and lean beef (steak) are simply better, and if you want to increase your fat intake, fish trumps pork due to the high saturated fat content of pork compared to the more desirable fats found in oily fish. In bodybuilding terms, pork is the guy that doesn't train legs, looks good for a while, but ultimately isn't complete.

Of course, variety is a good thing too, and pork can find it way onto your plate now and again, not only in the off season bacon sandwich.

Pigs are not food.

I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

Park belly is amazing. Such a great cut of meat.

When my catering business goes live, pork belly will be a staple.

Looks a good find that, I think I might even have bumped into that site in the past when googling rare breeds pigs. I'll have look through later. Turner and George was the best find. I get you and The long Wolf mixed up, you seem similar. I wanted to get my pork rib eyes up but I couldn't resize the photo on my phone for some reason, I'll try again
 
Them suckling pigs look magnificent, really striking. I've seem them on tastetradion. I tried some black pudding a while back for the first time, I'd never had it before, really enjoyed that.

I have to agree pig flesh taste ****ing amazing when cooked a certain way, it was just earlier this year I was tucking into a rack of BBQ baby pig ribs.
 
In fact I had a BBQ pulled jack fruit burger the other day which taste just like pulled pig, but without the suffering and death of an actual pig, also came without the added cancer and heart disease (among other nasty things).

I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

The only drugs I'd think about doing these days are natural weed. Wont even drink  anymore.

Hello strangers! Did somebody mention food?
 
On a science-based Intermittent Fasting group on Facebook, somebody left a comment about pork:-
"It is an abomination in God's eyes to eat pork or even shellfish for that matter. Deuteronomy 14:8....."

One (hilarious) Admin countered with:-
"God et al (2017) The dirtyness of the pork: meta analysis and systematic review, Journal of the Very High, pp. 666-669."

Another Admin pointed out:-
"1 Timothy 4:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer."

So there you have it (if you're religious, which I'm not). Tuck in!
