    insects low in fat? sounds fishy... aren't they full of fat?
    no. you're thinking of protein. if they where all our cp's would die.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    hmm... some sites say they're low in fat, others say they're high in fat.

Grasshoppers have 200 calories per 100 grams (approximately 900 calories per pound - some studies show up to 1,200 calories per pound) with 7-9 percent fat comparing to steak at 250 calories per 100 grams. Also crickets have amino acids required in the human diet. Beef provides 200-300 calories per 100 grams with 18 percent protein and 18 percent fat.

    but of course... the answer lies in between... with so many species of insects, it's hard to generalize

    I've been wondering where you were and how you were doing. I wanted to ask but I didn'y know who to ask.
    Well I'm glad you're eating.
