So I had a birthday icecream. I followed that up with a week of eating whatever I wanted. Lots of ice cream, and pretty much all the dates and coconut products that I still had in my house, and surprisingly there was still a fair bit. I also ate a 500 ml jar of honey and a lot of blackberries and a few apples. It was party mode but it’s over now. I wish I understood better why I do it, it makes me feel pretty bad by the third day, so you’d think I’d at least stop then.
Anyhow, as of today I’m up 7.2 pounds in less than a week on my tiny frame, from 104 lbs to 111.2 lbs. A full 7% of my total body weight.
I’m interested in seeing how fast my fatty beef protocol works on such a big gain.
So as of today I’m on a pure beef and beef fat ‘fast’ (along with up to two creamed coffees). I’ve been having tremendous success with this protocol lately when I’ve put on 2-4 pounds but I’ve been wanting to really quantify it. This will put it to the test.
The basics of it are that it provides everything the body needs nutrient-wise and is perfectly tasty but you don’t feel any compulsions to eat beef seasoned only with salt except when you are actually hungry.
Absolutely nothing is added except salt and protein is kept to the moderate levels of a ketogenic diet. The rest is made up with solid beef fat. The beef fat is not rendered and is eaten just lightly warmed up and salted. I find satiety is highest when the fat is taken in its complete cellular matrix this way AND when some protein is consumed with it.
Here is my chart starting with my birthday weigh-in of 104 and ending this morning at 111.2 lbs. I’ll track my weight, ketones and food daily.
