Does meat from grassfed or wild animal contain sugars or starch. Or are some organs more sugary than other parts of the animal?

Liver, shellfish and some fish all taste quite sweet to me. Since I dropped all starch (still lots of veg) 90% dark chocolate even tastes sweet. Even black coffee (dark roast) has some sugar/caramel notes I never noticed.

I think it would depend on your sensitivity to wheat. I looked at celiac.com and it seems there's a variety of wheat starch called Codex that's OK, but some people are still sensitive to it.

You will need carbs if you are doing endurance exercise. Swap grains for potato, sweet potato and starchy vegies. Eat more fat. How long are your long rides?

Chia can be digested soaked or not soaked, it does not really matter if they are soaked or not, although nutritional benefits will increase slightly if soaked.

I noticed there's about 3.7 grams of trans fat in a stick of butter (the type you would pick up at your average supermarket). Is this significant? Does pastured butter differ?
