It worked. We wanted to eat only steak for 30 days. We did it. Yay us!! Lol.
I learned a helluva lot more than just theories about my whacked lipids.
I learned how to order a whole untrimmed primal, I made friends with no less than 3 different butchers who contacted me when they got in an especially fatty primal. I learned that after about a week of agitation at eating the same thing, I fell into a pattern of viewing “food as fuel” and recognizing true hunger more than I ever have. I Iearned how much more simple my life became when feeding myself only involved cooking one steak a day. I had cravings for unusual flavors, sour being most prominent. My ketones were excellent, remaining steady between 2 and 4. I was more in touch with my acute craving for fat more than any time my first 3 years ketogenic. I lifted weights as normal, and increased my strength easily.
@Donna no doubt learned some things too, limiting her food to only steak for 30 days.
We didn’t even use spices!!!
^^and THOSE are the reasons we did the steak challenge. Not for health, not for lipid tests.
We did know it would not hurt us, and it did not.
I even still love steak! Though since this prefer it only once or twice a week, no more. I got way spoiled on it.
The lipid tests were purely out of curiousity. @Donna’s lipid panels were normal btw, which is how I expected mine to be, consistent and normal. That they were way off my normal was concerning at first, until I talked to @DaveKeto, then I was calmed by his solid research that lipids are not static.
We then followed my blood work and watched it return to my normal.
All of that lipid testing was unplanned for this steak challenge
Now. On to the wing challenge. There’s also an offal challenge in the works with @Donna. Lol
