Dr Oz: Bison VS Beef

Larry Olmsted, author of “Real Food Fake Food,” admitted he won’t eat something just because it’s healthier. But for him, if he sees a bison burger on a menu full of beef, he’ll order it every time because it allows him to get his burger fix in a way that still tastes delicious but is better for him.

Dr Oz put bison and beef head-to-head, using data for a typical beef burger versus a typical bison burger. A beef burger is typically about 240 calories while a bison burger is 179 calories. Beef burgers have 6 grams of saturated fat each, while bison has 3.5 grams. Bison is even lower in fat and calories than salmon and chicken! Also, typically when you see buffalo on a restaurant menu, unless you’re talking about chicken wings, it’s likely just a slang term for bison and is the same thing.

      So on today’s Dr. Oz show he’s drooling over beef (hamburger). He tends to talk out of both sides of his mouth. Wasn’t he vegetarian at one time?
