As an experiment to further disprove the notion of calories in/calories out and that a lack of carbohydrate will result in death and untimely weight gain (i.e., conventional BS), the indomitable @Brenda Zorn and myself are going to start a 30-day Steak Challenge at the end of February.
You must eat only steak only for 30 days.
Water and coffee only, preferably. I will send 1 cute brain sticker to successful challenge participants.
Simple enough, yes?
Comrades, feel free to join us in our grande venture! We will probably blog and maybe record some hijinks on our own regarding our experiment.
#Note: this thread became too large. 300 responses. A new weekly thread was started HERE:
Will track many data sources.
Amounts of any and all intake (water, coffee, steak weight, supplements)
Ketones (Ketonix AND blood ketone meter)
Mood (yes mood)
Measurements (thigh, hips, waist, etc)
Any exercise I may feel like doing (walking, swimming laps at my pool)
Weight lifting (excuse to brag again. Joy.)
Now, to find a herd of beef cattle and rustle one…
I assume you are allowing (doing) butter, mayo, mustard and other stuff? Or just salt/pepper?
I will be breaking a 14 day fast on the 29th so I might be willing to do this. But, I’m not the primary cooker, shopper in the family, so it may be hard. Then again, buying an Anova and having my last meal before my 14 day fast the night after it is delivered maybe wasn’t a great idea.
My first thought was this sounds like fun, but I can’t afford steak everyday. Then I thought, if I incorporate alternate day fasting into this then it would only be 15 steaks. at an average cost a day of $5. I think I could do that. What about steak accompaniments, would compound butter be acceptable? What about butter in coffee, would I have to change that up with tallow, or try to stick with plain coffee? My biggest challenge would be giving up
