    i definitely find eating the whole animal is what works for me so i dont just live off fillet steak. i would also rather eat roadkill than go back to being a vegetarian.
    fish roe, I keep forgetting about that. Caught myself a good sized trout 2 weeks ago FULL of roe. Warmed it up with some butter and little garlic in a pan. Scrumptious!

      Lamb, to me, tastes like a lot of game meat. At least more so than beef or pork.

      But most game meat is pretty lean. If I feel I want that gamey flavor but a fatty cut of meat, then lamb is a good option for those moments.

I just go with it. I've never felt better. The potato thread was really helpful for me as it seems that white potatoes really agree with me immensely. Since adding them in, I am less hungry and leaner. But only potatoes and nothing else is not something I'm interested in because my hard-won excellent health and vitality is too precious to squander on a lengthy hack.
        I find some days I am probably well under maintenance caloric intake, some days I am well over. I just follow my body's hunger signals. It seems to balance each other out. The number of days I am under vs. being over seems to keep me on an even keel personally.

            x2 on meat! My whole life was blurry before I actually put the focus on getting enough meat every day. Fat, yes, that helped a ton. But it wasn't until I upped my meat to the 1/2 pound to 1.5 pounds a day range that everything fell into place, my love handles disappeared and my mind settled down. That, of course, includes eating shellfish, fish, liver, skin, bones, etc.

              Ahh, let me review my week in meat:

              1) picked up locally raised lamb shanks and a pounds of ground lamb at farmer's market
              2) Got 2 lbs. of locally raised and processed bacon at another stand
              3) At yet another stand, tried out a pound of locally raised beef knockwurst. Delicious
              4) Drove over to my regular local farmer chicken supplier. This was the last processing day of the season. Picked up my six preordered chickens. Killed by Noon, in my freezer by 5 PM. Taste fresh as a daisy 3 months later. Sweet.

              This stuff was not cheap food, my friends. I may be shelling out more now, but the alternative is paying three times that in health costs later.

                  hogget and mutton is way more flavoursome than lamb. i prob should eat make the effort to eat more lamb. and yes most game meat is lean. even wild pork altho you can get fat young wild pigs which are incredibly tasty.

                    Hi sbhikes

                    congrats!

                    Have you been losing fat or decreasing weight? I'm interested because you may have gained muscle from higher protien intake and working out or - what often happens when ppl lose fat - you may have simply lost fat, look leaner, and therefore more musclar.

                    cheers

                      Fish roe is my favorite sushi. Both the smelt egg and the salmon roe. I love the way it pops in your mouth.

                      I've almost eaten a pound already today. Still got dinner to go.

                      Eating enough protein is a serious challenge for me sometimes. I spent 10 years as a vegetarian, and before and after that, I ate meat only sporadically. Most of my adult life has been in a fairly protein-deficient state. It's easy to drift back. When I remember to keep up the intake of meat, I feel better, my body looks better, I have better mental and physical energy. As much as I'd love to save all the furry and feather animals and just hug and kiss them, I've had to accept that I have to nourish myself or else I can't serve my best purpose in life. So I try to be grateful for the animals that lost their lives for me.

                        When I said I gained muscle, I meant I gained it at the very start of going paleo. I gained it when I was still fat. I could see it forming. This was before I did any sort of strength training and the only thing I was doing was taking a walk around campus. I could see my biceps forming.

                          My protein today, not just all meat but mostly, is 131grams. About twice what I was doing trying to stay in ketosis, and I feel twice as good now also. I have had more pounds lost this month that last month, but more importantly I have had inches lost in places that hasnt moved since early July and some even longer.

                            I fckin love meat. My husband is an incredible BBQ'r so this way of eating is perfect..but I've been trying to cut back on the meat lately bc everyone was saying too much protein causes stalls? Ugh. I know I just need to do my own thing but it gets confusing when you get stuck.. screw it,I have to go the meat market today & I'm gonna load up on the goods.

                              Is anyone in here under 10% body fat and can say they love meat and eat 5 servings a day with hardly any carbs
                              That's a lot of if's and's and but's! I don't know my BF%, but I can see my abs. I usually eat a pound a day, you tell me what a serving is. I vary my macros from time to time, and sometimes do high-fat, high-protein very low carb (less than 20g carb) for days or weeks on end. Meat and fat made me thin, if that's your question. I lost ten pounds by increasing my protein after a long stall.
