That’s actually a great idea. I could afford that.


(Stephanie Hanson) #142

What types of labs and how frequently?


(Renee) #143

Oh this is my dream diet!!! I wish I could afford to do this. Everyone in my house loves steak. So it would probably cost me $50-75/day for a family of 6!


(betsy.rome) #144

Oh man you guys, somebody oughta convince Omaha Steaks to sponsor this!!


(Alex Dipego) #145

Won’t be doing this though I love the idea. I just feel so much better with fish included 2-3 times in my week. It’s noticeable without fish then adding it back.


(Becky Foster) #146

I would love to join you on this challenge! Will you let us know how we can check in everyday.

@Fiorella although I’m going to refrain from doing this challenge/experiment due to my planned participation in a fitness challenge for two months, I wanted to let you know, I’ll be able to get some beef/pork fat from a local grocer for cheap - like some change per lb! And I can request fatty cuts of meat and custom cuts. ~winning~


(Stephanie Hanson) #148

Oh now I’m super curious about your fitness challenge. Do share.


(Charmaine) #149

It’s a challenge that my accountability partner does 2-3 times a year. It helps keep me on track. He gives exercise challenge to be incorporated in my regular routine; minimum amount of minutes to workout; minimum amount of miles to cover any way I want; no sugar (not a problem); hours to sleep; water and that about covers it. It’s two months of intensity that I honestly get excited about. LOL


(Stephanie Hanson) #150

That sounds awesome. I joined a wonderful BidyFit group at the gym and am now MIA d/t a horrible cold/cough/flu/stomach thing. I wish there was a proven way to stay healthy with a toddler in daycare. The constant interruptions in my fitness regimen really bum me out.


#151

Oh…yeeeeaaaaahhhhh! So happy for you, girl. Awesome!


(Charmaine) #152

You sound like my manager and her grandkids. She said she was giving everyone, including her husband hubby, cod liver oil tonight. LOL

Question for you guys… I am SO excited for this to start, I’m starting to look around for sales…
what are your thoughts on these prices?? I don’t usually buy these types of meats so I’m at a little loss here.

Porterhouse Steaks…$7.99 lb.

T-Bone Steaks…$7.79 lb.

Tenderloins (Whole or Cut)…$8.49 lb.


(Meeping up the Science!) #154

Depends where you live. Where I’m at most of those are $10 or more. It’s not terrible. I’m buying whatever I find at 5.99 whenever it’s there!


#155

It depends on the quality of the beef. Most stores will either not label their beef or use labels to fool you into thinking you have a higher grade. You’re likely to get select grade at most places, unless specifically saying USDA Choice or Prime. The best price, for the best grades, will be at Costco. I think Choice is running about $8-$9 a lb right now. The quality difference is so worth it.


(dawn.hakala) #156

Those prices are from my local butcher shop… love the meats there and usually don’t have decent sales on meats…
Costco is getting visit this weekend too :wink: Love their meats and with the meat I will be eating during this time… the sizes they have are pretty perfect! LOL


(Meeping up the Science!) #157

@DawnH my local butcher shop charges 3-4 more, and it is worth it. It all depends what you would like to do. I find on zero carb I eat less too by a bit. I’m starting to buy and freeze mine now, too.


(David K) #158

Yep. If I am eating ZC, it’s usually a 16oz Ribeye and then I am good for 24 hours.


(I want abs... olutely all the bacon) #159

Piggly Wiggly has sirloin and chuck steak for $3.69 and $3.99/lb :blush:, head on out!


(Erin Macfarland ) #160

I’m in, can we practice before then?? :joy:
