    Very interesting to hear. Maybe all these years I put off working out was due to my bad eating habbits. Oh, and I don't dust much either. I figure it is a protective layer and should be embraced. HA!

      If you don't mind me asking, I have a personal question: how have things been coming out the other end? With no carbohydrate and no fiber, things are bound to come screeching to a halt. Feel free to not answer though. Some topics are probably left off-limits.
      I was wondering about that being a potential area of concern at the start but so far its not been a problem, although my frequency has dropped to once every two days.

        Bread and grains were the first thing I gave up when I went Paleo. I see in a couple of your posts that you mention that you are still eating bread. Just wondering if it's gluten free?

          I second that!

            Meh. Dusting is overrated.

              It's not - nor have I given up beer. Both are occasional treats (once a week or less for bread, 3-4 beers a week for beer) and I probably will never give them up. I'm very healthy, have no digestive issues, and I really friggin' love bread and beer. Beer is a big part of my relationship with my dad. Though he tragically has Crohn's disease and probably shouldn't be drinking beer at this point. I'm helping him to gradually transition to high-end ciders and wine. I'm even brewing some cider for him which will hopefully taste as good as the great beers he enjoys.

              Until recently I haven't been too discerning with my bread but my dad just got me Nourishing Traditions (which is mandatory reading for primal enthusiasts, as far as I'm concerned). Lots of the grain recipes in that book either use sprouted grains, or call for you to grind your own flour with a grain grinder. I see no real problem with either of those. I think grains can be a healthy part of a diet as long as they're the right grains, and they're consumed in moderation in the context of a healthy, otherwise primal diet. Hell, one of my favorite comfort foods is a big bowl of oatmeal with butter and cream. On the advice of Nourishing Traditions I've started soaking my oats prior to cooking them.

              • 250g of mince and using4 eggs is only just over 500 cals . I'm 250lbs, that amount even 3 times a day is not enough surely?

                  Maybe increase the meat a bit and and another egg - don't forget the butter or coconut oil. I just finished a .94 lb New York Strip, 3 strips of Bacon, 4 Fried eggs all in butter with a few mushrooms, onions and jalapeno pepper. It came out to 1890 calories. I'll probably do hamburger and eggs tonight and it will end up being around 2800 for the day.

                  • Aye, i might have to bump the fat intake to bulk out the meals. What's the carb limit?

                      I'd say as low as possible.

                      • I know this is a mite silly, but I'm going out to dinner with my mother-in-law Friday night for an early Mother's Day and I want to stick to steak and eggs as much as I can. I don't want to have my carb day on Friday, but instead on Saturday as planned. The venue is Macaroni Grill. Can anyone find the friendliest item on their dinner menu? There's only one steak item, and the "BBQ" indicates to me that it has a sugary sauce. I think I'm either going to order the steak, hold the sauce, with the vegetables and insist that everything be cooked in butter. I'll down some eggs at home. Alternatively, I could go for the half-chicken under a brick, which is actually pretty good. Anyone else have an idea?

                        I'm just going to accept now that I'm going to have a few glasses of wine. No way I'm not having wine. It's going to be so difficult to not eat the bread though. Of course I could just say "screw it" and enjoy myself and just try to minimize the damage.

                        • All right, Canuck, you crazy old coot (I mean that in the most affectionate way possible), I'm in. I stopped by the market today to grab a few things, and didn't feel like shopping. And grass-fed steak was on sale. I figured it was a sign. 5 minutes later I was out the door--easiest shopping trip ever. I also gave my egg guy a heads-up not to sell anyone else eggs for the next few weeks, 'cause I'll need all of them (his comment "You want even MORE of them? You're already 90% of what I sell!").

                          I had a little cheese and a few nuts that I polished off this morning before my shopping trip, but just knocked down a steak and 6 eggs. This will be simple for me, since steak and eggs are two of my favorite foods. I'll be VERY strict with it: steak, eggs, salt, pepper, an occasional dash of hot sauce. Sunday morning I'll hit the farmer's market and get a pile of sweet potatoes and fruits and veggies to chomp down that day. Just chicken breast or tuna or something on "carb day", maybe a little red wine.

                          I'm planning on two weeks for now; we'll see how it goes.

                          Oh, I do have two lamb steaks in my fridge still, so I'll have those as steak replacements twice, and will throw a slice or two of bacon on top every once in a while. But yeah, strict as can be.

                          I also am going to switch my workouts to more of a bodybuilding split rotation for the next few weeks--I'm currently lifting full-body 3-4 days per week (HEAVY), so I'll change that up for the duration.

                          Here we go!

                          • Om nom nom! Just devoured my lamb steaks with eggs. The marrow is exquisite

                            Had some ground beef and eggs earlier. Todays exercise was just a nice long walk in the sun.

                              Great to have you on board Mr. Anthony! Looking forward to hearing about your experiences. Two weeks should be enough to give you a good idea if the Steak and Eggs approach will generate some fat loss. Good to hear your going into bodybuilding mode for a couple of weeks, should lead to some muscle and metabolic gains. Best of luck!

                                I say bag it. Make Friday your Carb refeed day and get back on the wagon on Saturday. Or just don't eat until Friday's dinner and then carb on through to lunch the next day.
