Such things are so not informative as I have no idea if that contains 3g or 30g carbs… (I can imagine 1g and 100g too, actually. Serving means nothing at all, it’s quite individual. And there are carbier and less carby carbs. Rice or pickles? There is a difference!)
What does it mean, 3 part of lean meat, 1 part fat? I don’t know the volume ratios for fat and lean meat - and it’s a huge range as meat can lose water… Or is this weight? I don’t know why diets say things I can’t interpret, why not grams? Not like it matters, fat ratio is very very individual, mine heavily depends on my actual phase and my energy need. I can’t eat too fatty or else I will inevitably overeat. I thought fatty meat works, only added fat is bad but nope, I overeat very fatty meat too. Pork chuck is my fattiest option in bigger amounts. It’s fine as it’s more than fatty enough for me. But if I suddenly had a way higher energy need, I could eat tons of fat easily. It would be nice. It’s a bit sad to keep myself from eating fat but I am kind of pleased with my modest amount so I can’t really complain. And I can go overboard if it really troubles me. Maybe I will make a fatty birthday I should start to train myself to take out the already rusted in place brakes in very very rare occasions… I can even deliberately go for fat, as an experiment but with joy as my main goal so not forcefully or unnecessarily. I don’t like pork shoulders much so I wouldn’t eat that. But more butter and cream than usual and my fav fatty pork items? That sounds nice. That’s a plan. It will be towards the end of July.
I shouldn’t comment on specific diets, I dislike them all except if they are for specific people who are happy with it as it suits them. I am never among them.
I had way more cheese than usual today (well okay my usual amount is zero…) but I made 3 cheese pizza today (it only took a few occasion to stop making my own version at the same time and being perfectly fine with eating my roast) and 2 of the cheeses were special Gorgonzola and cheddar. We always have an open packet of Gouda and I find it very boring so basically never touch it. I didn’t need the cheese sampling, per se but why to left out? Cheddar is AWESOME and super flavorful, a little goes a long way! Gorgonzola is “worse”, I mean I can only eat a tiny morsel per bite of food as it’s nice but way too flavorful for me to handle not very much diluted. I can eat cheddar alone, it’s just very flavorful and a morsel is enough that way. I had it with sponge cake (my bread. I start to think it’s the perfect bread, hands down. even if it’s not bread but I use it like that) while I ate the gorgonzola with my scrambled eggs.
I ate maybe 600g pork chuck… Didn’t track yet but it wasn’t a particularly low-cal day I suppose… Especially that I ate lots of cream… But my eating window was quite big as I just didn’t get hungry after lunch. I ate 4 hours later or something and it is a very long time for me but happens on carnivore sometimes.
I don’t say I couldn’t have eaten more pork chuck roast… But I survive until tomorrow (when I just skip the eggs and eat as much meat as I want).
I made pork soup too The cute sized (I don’t meat small, I mean decent, not big but almost) pork chuck was nearly 3kg and had lots of bone so soup was unavoidable. I kept forgetting so I made it in the evening and will eat tomorrow. Yum. I planned to eat some and give the rest to Alvaro who would put vegs into it… But no, it’s MINE. He doesn’t want it anyway so it’s okay. He will make something with beans and lots of vegs… He just can’t appreciate the delicious simplicity of my current soups. I made so, so, so many veggie soups in my life. They were nice but complicated as they contained various ingredients. My soup contains pork, salt and water. It’s not good enough with chicken but pork is great. I hope. I never had such a big bone, I only made turkey/pork soups after my not so great but edible fowl ones. But the bone had a lot of meat on it so it’s probably pretty nice. And if it’s not the best, it still can become a delicious egg pudding or two.
Tomorrow I really try to stick to my meat and add only as many eggs as I really need (pretty low nowadays) and be wary of cream (sour cream included but I learned to eat little of it most of the time). Obviously no added fat. Probably still TMAD… And I will figure out if pork chuck is too fatty for me on TMAD. As I probably can’t avoid many TMAD days.
Coffee… I drank it as I have whipped cream and they are too good together It’s coffee or cocoa, I am not sure which is best for me at the moment… BUT I only drank water until 2:15pm, it’s something. My first coffee never happened until noon this week. I should last until 4pm I think… I will try harder. But I have more important goals now.
Okay, my plate from today. Yay, I almost stuck to a single (and not even big) plate! I should make a challenge from it! This is all about simplicity as I obviously can put 4-5000 kcal on a single plate without any particular effort. Never tried but seems very easy. (I could do 10000, maybe 20000, I have a big plate and I can build a tower…)
I never was the one plate person. I was the multiple meals with many courses type but carnivore and my eventual changes simplified my eating. YAY! Tracking is ridiculously easy - except I have no idea about the fattiness of my meat and right now, the raw weight either as the bone interfered. But my educated guess should be enough It’s not really important but I am curious and want to compare days to figure out things.
So, my plate. I ate 2 more sponge cakes and some cheddar and a few coffees with cream and a little sour cream as well but I never know these things in advance. That’s why I sometimes make my photo the next day but I need enough leftovers for that.
This is a smallish plate. My piece of meat looks so small and it’s 600g in raw weight… Well okay I didn’t eat it all but only because I had eggs as well and I ate early. Not a real challenge alone for dinner OMADs I am sure. I will try that if I manage to skip lunch.
Guesstimation says ~1800 kcal, cool. Okay so I don’t overeat with pork chuck on TMAD when Carnivore Quick Satiation kicks in. I had high hopes for my fav cut, fattier ones don’t work though, I know that already.
