Beef is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Eggs contain Calcium, Phosphorus and Magnesium.
    I've been trying to tell people this for a while now. Carnivorous diets are not going to make one deficient in anything.

    Drumroll is right about a bit more fat and less protein getting you more ketogenic. A way to do that while still staying all steak and eggs all the time is to add a couple of extra egg yolks and toss out some whites.

    Welcome to the meaty side. Rawr!

      Yep, I realized last night, after demolishing a 1.25lb sirloin, I could never get tired of it. This is going down!

        Thanks for the tip PB, I may add in some extra yokes from time to time. I think the weight training I'm planning will require the elevated protein levels. We shall see, its an experiment so I may adapt the macros a bit after a couple of weeks based on my results.

          Seeing how I am sensitive to egg whites, I toss all the whites and just eat the yolks. Even the cats won't eat them.

            Just curious, do you think the whites not digesting well could be from what the chickens are fed? I cannot remember where I heard this, but often times people with egg intolerance issues stem from intolerance to what the chickens eat, ex; soy, wheat, corn ect. Or even a lack of sufficient bugs and what not that pastured chickens get to eat.

            It just seems so wasteful to throw out those egg whites, have you come up with any uses for them?

              Given your workouts and that fact that you have been fairly low carb Primal for quite a while now, you probably can handle a bit higher level of protein without gluconeogenesis going overboard.

              Nora Gedgaudas advocates a lower level of protein for most people coming off the SAD because, since their body is still in sugar burning mode and hasn't become fat adapted yet, if they start gorging on too much steak, the body will seek out the metabolic pathway that is the most familiar and gluconeogenesis will disrupt their attempt to get into ketosis.

              I don't think this would be such a problem for you.

                It's reached the point where I don't care. I'm not going to do a ton of research trying to find if different sources of eggs affect me differently. I don't think that "not digesting well" is a good description of what is happening.

                As far as I'm concerned, if the cats won't eat them, I shouldn't be either. Though I will on occasion make non-primal desserts from them.

                  Fair enough....my dogs wont eat egg whites either, they will only eat the yolk. More fat anyways

                    Ok its steak and yokes for you! Now just add the hard core weight training and sprints and lets see what we end up with at the end of 4 weeks. Are you in?

                      Makes sense thanks...Ok PB time to ramp up the workouts with some intensity for a month and see what kind of results you get on your ketogenic diet, are you in?

                        OK, I guess now that I am moved in to my new place I have no excuse. I'm not going to start pumping iron but I will get back to what has worked well for me in the past which is the PBF plan of 2x/wk LHT bodyweight exercises, 1x/wk sprints plus lots of walking and a weekly backcountry hike.

                          Yes! Steak and eggs tomorrow for brunch, pump some more iron.

                            Great! I like the sprinting and long walks - excellent! But why not get out of your comfort zone and try some lifting for a month? Heavy compound lifts increase testosterone (yes this is important for women) and HGH, this combined with some increased muscle will drive up your metabolic rate and burn some fat. This is the month to push beyond any pre-conceived notions about what you thought you were capable of and get past any previous barriers with a vengeance.

                                I'd be in if I could afford it! Will be watching your progress.
