    So I'm I guy who's right around the 10% range. I'm trying to figure out if I should keep my refeed at one per week...

    At any rate, I won't be surprised if I take this to 3 weeks. I originally planned on 2 just to test drive it. I'm finding it easy so far.

    • Young guy in front of me at the supermarket was ogling my cart. 4 pound tray of tri-tip steak, 1 large sweet potato, and 3 carboys of drinking water. He had a number of packages of mass-produced bread. Jealous.

        Ha, I posted this somewhere else, but the other day I loaded up pounds of steak, cartons of eggs, and even more butter onto the market counter. The (older) lady behind me had MOUNTAINS of fruits. Piles and piles of it. And a few other veggies. Zero meat or fat or anything. ZERO. And she had to ask me to lift her watermelons onto the counter because she wasn't strong enough. I felt validated.

          I recall reading that when you posted it.

          I sure didn't need help hefting one of those carboys onto the belt. My boyfriend is jealous of my biceps.

          • Thanks for the info, canuk. I'll give it a go and refeed on my third week.

            • Been solid steak and eggs, but today I ate a pound of chicken liver with my eggs instead. Saves money and keeps me from feeling run down! Will eat my other steak soon...

                Here's what happens with me. If I don't eat enough protein or fat, I end up going crazy and binging on what I wasn't getting enough of. I go absolutely crazy on a low fat diet. I crave cheese, mousse, fatty meat... When I accidentally don't eat enough protein for a few days, all of a sudden I start craving meat, fish, cheese, and can't stop eating it.

                I think all binges have a physiological component. They don't come out of nowhere.
                Thanks...it helps to know other people go through this too...I try to analyze everything leading up to one every time it happens...this was a regular day, no added stress, home for my meals...but I think it was the weekend that left me deficient...eating out is always hard as they never give you enough meat because they want to fill the plate with crapohydrates because they are cheap so even though I was hyper aware not to eat anything but the meat and fat and was happy to make it through both days staying primal and s&eish, the cumulative effect I guess caught up with me on Monday...live, learn, move on...I will try and eat more this weekend and see if it helps stave off the Monday beast...

                  ...perhaps a difference of 10% would be more realistic. Statistical, a healthy male is considered to be ~15%. A woman, more like 25%...hebs

                    During normal times I've gotten home from eating out and gone to the fridge to eat more protein. A big reason I'm not eating out right now is that I can't get the size steak I need at any restaurants around here. (We don't have real steak houses.) You can't enjoy the carbs or alcohol, they don't feed you enough, why bother? Even on carb day, everything is too high in fat. Mashed potatoes with butter and cream? Doesn't fit in that day, either.

                    • I happen to like eating all my vegetables and fruits on one day after 6 days of meat and egg yolks. But I'm eating a bit different than most people do on carb day.

                        Yeah we haven't gone out either (well, except for carb day). At home, a brilliantly cooked 24 oz. steak and 6 fried eggs costs me roughly 20 minutes of my time and $8. At a restaurant, this would be an off-menu order and likely cost more than $30, if I could even find a place to order it.

                        I'm going to a happy hour this evening and I'll probably just get a dram of neat Scotch and abstain from food. It's just not easy going out on this diet. But that's ok. Save money and lose fat. I can have fun when I'm lean.
                        I'm a weak man...If I give myself a few feet of leeway, I burst through all of my prohibitions.

                          I think that is actually a smart move. Eating liver as a substitute for one of your meals especially in the 2nd or 3rd week is probably a good idea.

                            Seeing as how I can't eat egg whites, it would take a pretty advanced kitchen to provide me with any preparation of egg yolks.

                              They may have pickled eggs at the bar in case you need to munch on something. I've been bringing my own hard boiled eggs with me when we go to a steak house, just to have something else to eat. Luckily in my area, I have two excellent steak houses and a Brazilian steak house too. I'm saving that one for a special occasion. We went there last month before I started s&e, looking forward to doing it again.

                              I have chocolate-covered strawberries, a pint of blueberries, some curried shrimp, and frozen bananas set aside for my refeed on Friday. Looking forward to it but also, amazingly, still enjoying steak and eggs.

                              • There has been some discussion surrounding the eating of wheat on refeed days in the thread. Here is a good concise blog post on the subject.
