This thread to be used for Brenda’s 30 day steak journal. No commenting. It’s like my diary for you to read. Lol
Starting a 30 day steak challenge today. Only steak and coffee . No spices or added fats. Only whole beefsteak.
Just negotiated half my plan with Vince at Hackenmueller’s butcher shop. He’s giving me a discount since I am buying the thick fat cap. I’ll buy 15 one pound steaks from him. The remaining 15 will be: seven especially fatty ones that I found and froze, and the balance chuck steaks. There is, however, no limit on the amount that of steak I will eat daily. Last night I ate 2.5 pounds. (3 steaks) Lol.
More affordable buying inexpensive cuts as well as the king of fatty meats: the mighty ribeye. I LOVE eating ZC. I did it a strict 7 months back in 2015. Learned a lot about my body and food sensitivities.
This 30 day steak challenge is to prove a point that red meat will only IMPROVE my lipid panel. I will be documenting daily stats plus a photograph of all the steaks I consume with weights. (I will also be participating in a structured protocol of Dave Feldman next time I do this. A study with blood draws athe a local lab etc.)
Many factors will be weighing in as I go, including a DEXA scan to track LBM with different levels of protein and my specific lifestyle of lifting heavy and the ketogenic diet. (before and after for baseline).
This journal is to track my steaks I am eating on me and @Donna’s mutual 30 day steak challenge.
