2-3 eggs for an omelette/scrambled eggs but it’s just the first eggy course of a proper meal in my world. 8 eggs is a decent amount of eggs per meal/day for me but it’s very little food, no way I get satiated with it under normal circumstances so I eat other things. It’s not too many eggs to have along with a proper amount of meat for a proper, substancial meal (like, 500-600g pork chuck, my most important staple meat).
I never was good with tiny meals but occasionally they happen, just usually very close to other meals.
But super rarely I have 60g meat days too, it’s not a meat dish, just some processed stuff or a turkey neck in my soup. But those almost never are carnivore(-ish) days as I can’t live on eggs and dairy.
It’s different for you and many others as you function well with more than 1(-2) meals a day and you eat a significant amount of plants even on a good day.
But I like the meat I eat anyway and a little would be so pointless, I mean business when I eat, I couldn’t get satiated with a little (unless I would eat very many eggs in various forms including desserts but it’s better to eat more meat).
I see 500g pork a really not big piece after I roast it… Nice, not too little (except when it is) as it’s only the main course, not the whole meal but it’s so small on my plate…
But I have my own idea about what is small or too little food.
Indeed but there are these things called fasting. Egg fast, fat fast, PSMF. They aren’t fasts but one eats in a restrictive way and I don’t know why but people call that fast sometimes… Egg fast doesn’t even have a calorie restriction, technically, one eats fat and protein alike though very little protein unless someone is able to eat much on that horrible, insanely fatty mini-diet (I can’t but I quit after 9 hours anyway when I tried. but it was very satiating while lasted, similarly to the fat fast that I quit on the 2nd day and only because I got paranoid about my protein).
The egg fast has the worst name as it has very little eggs and it isn’t a fast AT ALL, I think it’s recommended to eat many times a day…? I couldn’t eat much at once anyway unlike on the fat fast (if 1000 kcal is much for someone, that was the amount there and it was enough for a day for me, amazing).
I feel compelled to try PSMF for a day once (scratched that, make it low-fat, so <80g. that’s little, right?). It can’t be much worse than the egg fast… And in the worst case I will get interesting experiences and then quit soon but TRY a meal. It just needs an insane focus to avoid fat. I am bad at it. Once I wanted to eat lots of protein and only focused on my protein and ended up with 220g fat somehow. Once, very long ago I just jumped one of my no satiation fav foods, bread with honey, ate a ton of it and ended up with 45% fat somehow. Fat just appears around me. I need my decade long training and habit and a low level continuous focus on keeping it as low as I comfortably can to only go over 200g fat occasionally. 280g regularly happens but I am usually way lower. But going below 80g… Sounds impossible. But I will make some honest attempt one day (Without eating a ton of sugar the previous day as that would make it almost realistic… I had 500kcal days in my life. Not every year, even full fast days are more frequent but they happened.)
