Oh gosh you had me laughing on this one!
BOO! HAHA All we all good here and will help you for sure.
And you don’t have to go full carnivore.
I think you are heading in a great direction. I see from your stats you lost bigger weight already. So you been here, done that
Won’t hit you with carnivore chat etc. You are asking about protein and fat.
the fat you want is from the protein you eat. Don’t think added fat like butter. You want fatty type meats.
I eat around 2 lbs per day. I am 58 and 5’8 and actively losing lbs now on carnivore. I am about 190 now heading down the scale. Thing is one day I will eat 2 lbs. easily, the next day 1.5 or the next maybe lower in heavy meat like steak and gear toward seafood, maybe some processed stuff like salami, it is just cause I am not that hungry that I head that way and eat lighter, but then boom, I want my heavy meat days again. I eat exactly how my body asks and follow the quantity it wants all the time. I never limit. Never overeat. Eat til absolutely full and done.
I just ate a 1 lb. ribeye. I couldn’t finish it. I ate 75% and will snack out on the leftover in a bit cause I will want it…then tonight I will gravitate toward 2 chicken breasts, smaller size and eat both. Now that I sautee in some grass fed butter cause it is so lean.
I might hit a tin of sardines if wanted. Yum.
I do seafood a lot. I fair best on about a 8-10 oz ribeye then eat up like easily a 1/2 lb of jumbo with it.
one thing. eat more protein. it is so very very vital. so many are undereating protein. it is a fact out there. no denying it.
think fatty type meats. eggs are great but pair with some true red meat. seafood is fab…pair with red meat. chicken is great but have that paired up with some red meat in your day.
key is beef here heavy dense fatty delish cuts of beef. these cuts of meat are the game changers to being content, full, happy, no cravings, not snacky or hungry in that needy feeling way.
You got this Aunt Jane. Any way you up that protein in your day will be key for you. And beef it out, the good protein give it a fair shot.
think meatballs. think turkey bacon cheeseburgers. think a steak…and yea eat that big old steak!~ add seafood, any kind you like to any of your meat options as a ‘side’ dish.
Important also now…don’t think OMAD. Don’t fast.
Just eat your meat, eggs, etc. and eat any time you feel you need to eat. Very important because if you do this, it leads to your appetite become more satiated etc. You build it up. So it is important not to ‘diet’ at all. Just eat the meat and go for it And in a while see how you feel…I would say hopefully within a week up upping that protein level you will feel way less hungry and more calm.
keep the thread alive and let us know how you are doing thru your days. It is great to try a bit of experimenting on yourself…not a darn thing wrong with that I can’t wait to hear about any changes you experience. See, we ain’t that bad HAHA
