raw meat

cooking does not preserve meat. It's a temporary change. It will kill bacteria, but not prevent bacteria or mold from growing in the future.

tungsten micro weights

raw meat

There once was a recommendation on exrx.net to eat 3 oz of protein 1 hr before working out. That seems to have disappeared, but I still follow it. b. In her book on exercise, Gin...
