  • Felt like I was starving by dinner and craving only meat. Is this normal?

    Starving today! Absolutely crazed for protein! By the time I got home from work I literally couldn't think of doing anything but eating as soon as possible and all I wanted to eat was meat. I didn't want any veggies or carbs or anything.

      It's not abnormal (in my very limited experience, that being myself and one of my friends). There are some days where I want nothing more than a bloody steak and I can feel the hunger all day (which is distracting as all get up).

          I had one of those days not long ago. There was some leftover t-bone steak in the fridge, and my partner almost fell over laughing when he came into the kitchen and caught me gnawing it off the bone while leaning against the kitchen counter.

            This. No worries.

            I also have days where I want mostly veg... I think it balances out.

              I haven't been hungry today, and only had a lamb sausage for breakfast. But just before I got hungry and had a huge urge for fatty, spicy chicken nibbles, which I just had cooked in ghee and coconut oil. I love having fat dripping down my chin LOL

                Thanks for the words of support guys! I wasn't really worried, but it was so different from the first few weeks where I mostly was able to eat when I was hungry and fasted every few days.

                I wound up eating an unknown amount of grilled mahi mahi and bacon that my wonderful husband made for me after I got home and was like "MEAT!"

                I didn't even feel full...it was strange...I feel good today though. Just had 3 eggs, and I'm taking a huge amount of the fish with me for lunch...

                  That picture in my mind is very primal!

                    Yes, it happens to me too when I am very hungry & had sufficient starch (or at least that's how I niterpret it). At times, I even crave raw meat, rather than cooked one, mostly because our grass-fed meat looks and smells so darn good. I ate a few raw pieces a couple of times, and they were very yum. I do crave carbs too at other times.

                      I made a steak recently where I cooked it in the oven under very low heat (275 degrees) to an internal temperature of only 105 degrees. Then seared it a little to hold in the juices. Then let it rest for 10 minutes. It was pure red inside and oh so good. Apparently low heat cooking like this doesn't actually "cook" the meat so much as break down the fibers so it's easier to digest. Next time you are craving meat, make it like that and you'll really be satisfied.

                        That sounds very good. I will have to make a note of it, and since I already like my steaks to be more rare anyway it should be perfectly lovely!!

                        As it is, I'm already finding myself eager to get home and have dinner. We've been having more fish that red meat this week. Had to ask my husband to pick up some steaks today, since I think that's what I really want...bacon and fish can only really go so far...

                          Mmmmm...meat... I have meat craving days, too! The other day, I would've KILLED someone for a nice, juicy fried (no coating!) chicken thigh with crispy skin and fat running down my arm. I couldn't wait to get home and throw a few in the frying pan!

                            I'm curious about this...I've always heard of doing it the other way round? Sear it to seal the juices then cook it to your taste (I skip this part as I eat mine rare). But it seems as you said your not actually cooking it (least not much)....looks like I have an experiment to try.
